Two private client lawyers from Aberdein Considine have been ranked among the best in the UK by Chambers and Partners Legal Directory, one of the world’s most respected legal guides.
Both Ryan Fox and James MacKinnon have been recognised in the Private Wealth Law category of Chambers’ High Net Worth Guide for 2023.
Ryan, who is a Partner with the firm and supports clients across the North East of Scotland, has achieved a Band two ranking. He specialises in wills, trusts and executries as well as providing advice on a wide range of private client matters including estate administration, tax planning and asset protection. This is the second time Ryan has been ranked.
James, who is a Partner and Head of the firm’s Edinburgh Private Client practice, provides clients with tax-efficient solutions in passing on wealth to future generations and specialises in all aspects of the formation, administration and termination of trusts. He also provides expert advice on the legal and tax implications of the use of trusts in succession planning and asset protection.
Chambers, which ranks and rates the best lawyers in the world based on client feedback, is highly regarded due to its independent research-based assessment of firms.
Commenting on his new ranking Ryan said: “It’s always pleasing to be recognised by such a prestigious organisation and the ranking reflects the way we look to support our clients every day.”
James added: “To be ranked is a big honour but it’s most definitely a tribute to the hard work and commitment of everyone in our private client teams.”
