GA Solicitors duo listed as the highest ranked in Plymouth
Multi-sector law firm GA Solicitors has been officially listed as the only ‘Band One’ law firm in Plymouth in the category for “Private Wealth” following extensive research by an international guide to the profession.
The Chambers High Net Worth 2020 has identified wills, trusts and probate partners Jonathan Hall and Matthew Rose as the city’s leading experts in private wealth advice – for the second year in succession.
The research by Chambers took place over a six month period to March 2020 which involved interviews with thousands of clients, industry professionals (such as accountants and independent financial advisors) and other law firms before publishing its findings.
The research found that GA Solicitors is considered to be “one of the premier law firms in the Plymouth area” and “certainly at the top of its game” according to market commentators. Its private client team is praised for its high-quality level of advice on contentious and non-contentious private client matters.
It also went on to describe the firm as “excellent” in relation to work involving trusts, probate, powers of attorney and Inheritance Tax. One market insider said: “I work closely with them and that is principally born out of absolute reliability in their service and their delivery of it.”
Chambers identified Head of Department Jonathan Hall as: “Professional, knowledgeable, and easy to access on the phone,” whilst another respondent remarked that he is “one of the best trust and probate lawyers we have come across” and is described as “adept at advising on issues surrounding mental capacity.”
Meanwhile it described partner Matthew Rose as: “Extremely efficient” and praised his work in advising farming and business-owning clients on Inheritance Tax and succession planning matters.
Commenting on the news, GA Solicitors, Managing Partner, David Wallis said: “This listing is significant given that Chambers is independent and considered to be the most widely respected guide to lawyers and law firms. I’m particularly pleased that Jonathan and Matthew have once again been recognised for their specialist work with private clients. Congratulations to the two of them and of course to the wider team.”
