A leading Midlands law firm has reinforced its position amongst the industry’s top performers after appearing in a distinguished UK guide of legal firms.

And in this year’s Legal 500 ranking, the Leamington-based law firm Wright Hassall has, for the first time, been ranked in the top tier for its private wealth team which looks after the legal affairs of a wide range of individuals and families

Wright Hassall has retained its position as one of the leading firms in the West Midlands in the guide which highlights the country’s top lawyers and firms, with two of its lawyers included on the rising stars’ list.

Nathan Lapsley from the firm’s corporate team, Jennifer Russell from the private wealth team, and Jennie Wheildon from the agriculture team were added to the ones to watch list in this year’s rankings.

Jennifer, who joined Wright Hassall in 2010, said: “I am delighted to have been acknowledged in the Legal 500 and for the private wealth team to ranked in the top tier is a great achievement.

“As a team, we have worked hard to continue delivering impressive results for our clients so for that to be acknowledged is a real win for the team.”

In the Legal 500, the firm maintained its tier 1 ranking in five other practice areas including real estate, commercial litigation, business immigration, agriculture and corporate/commercial.

Susan Floyd, partner in the private wealth team, added: “We are delighted to break into the top tier for our tax, trusts and probate work; it’s a great tribute to the team’s hard work over the year. We’re also pleased on behalf of our clients, many of whom have been with us for years.

Overall, the rankings are a fair reflection of the firm’s achievements which highlight the consistently strong work carried out by staff across all our teams and sectors.

“The Legal 500 is a well-respected guide and so it’s wonderful to have once again been recognised.”

In theory, drafting your own will using an off-the-shelf template, purchased online or from good stationers, can be a quick and easy way of leaving instructions on how you want your assets to be distributed after your death. Nonetheless, a will is a legal document and if it has been incorrectly worded and / or witnessed it may be invalid, meaning your estate would pass in accordance with the rules of intestacy (government provisions setting out how an estate should be divided if there is no will).
