5 Stone Buildings ranked as leading set in Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Directory
We are delighted again to have been ranked as a leading set in this year’s High Net Worth directory published by Chambers and Partners. The directory lists the leading private client practitioners advising and litigating for high net worth clients. We have been ranked for both our Traditional Chancery expertise and our Private Client Tax work.
For Traditional Chancery, the directory says: “5 Stone Buildings is one of the pre-eminent traditional chancery sets in London and is notable for its strength and depth. A source says: “There really are no weak links, from the youngest pupil to the oldest silk.” This extremely strong group of silks and juniors regularly handles some of the most high-profile and high-value matters in this field.”
Of the Private Client Tax team, it writes: “”I found them to be excellent,” says a source, adding: “They were very gifted technically as you would expect, client-friendly and they set things out in a clear and concise manner.” Another source notes: “One of their great strengths is that the set clearly get on very well and share expertise.”
Our individual barristers are ranked 29 times, across both these areas and also for Art & Cultural Property Law and Trusts Mediation. We particularly congratulate our joint Head of Chambers, Penelope Read QC, who is singled out by the directory as a “star individual”.
We are also pleased to see that our clerking team received special recognition: “”They are accommodating, practical and helpful. They bend over backwards to help and make things as easy as possible,” says a commentator. Another praises the “helpful, approachable clerks.” Paul Jennings is the head clerk.”
