Murray Beith Murray is delighted to be recognised as a Tier 2 legal firm for ‘Personal tax, trusts and executries’, rising a tier from last year, and bringing evaluation of this expertise in line with the ‘Contentious trusts and probate’ retained ranking by the ‘Legal 500 UK’, the leading guide to law firms in the UK. We are now one of the few Scottish firms ranked in the top two tiers for both these core practice areas. Particular comments included:- “Excellent attention to detail. Excellent clarity on costs likely to be incurred, with clear updates for any potential variation. Rapid response to queries, again, with excellent clarity."
These recent results also distinguish Hugh Younger, and Ruthven Gemmell as Leading Lawyers (two of only a handful of lawyers recognised in that way); Partner, Peter Shand is named as a Recommended Lawyer; Partner, Andrew Paterson, is highlighted as “knowledgeable, helpful and prompt in his responses" and Associate, Caroline Pringle, retains her ranking as a Recommended Lawyer.
In our Rural Property Group, Andrew Linehan receives the following recognition “Andrew Linehan always manages to provide first-rate advice on the agricultural tenancy front, in a way that's concise and easy to understand. He's always reachable and you can depend on him to turn things round very quickly.”
Senior Partner, Hugh Younger, said, “These results are based on independent research, which is revised and updated each year, from the ‘Legal 500 UK’s analysis of the firm; the expertise we provide, and from conversations with our clients and professional contacts. We are understandably proud to be recognised as a Tier 2 legal firm for ‘Contentious trusts and probate’ and now also for ‘Personal tax, trusts and executries’.”
