Debenhams Ottaway continues to be the only firm ranked in band 1 for private wealth law in the recently published Chambers High Net Worth 2021 guide, firmly establishing the team as trusted advisers to the private wealth sector in Hertfordshire.

Debenhams Ottaway has one of the largest and most experienced Wills, trusts and probate teams in Hertfordshire with an impressive client base including City professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners and wealthy families in Hertfordshire, London and across the UK. Working with the family, corporate, employment, property and dispute resolution teams across the firm, they help high net worth clients navigate legal challenges and make the most of exciting new opportunities in both their personal and business lives.

Clients and fellow private wealth professionals comment that the Wills, trusts and probate team provides “comprehensive, highly qualified service in a personalised and friendly manner” and they “speak to clients in an easy-to-understand way, allowing them to make informed decisions.”

Managing partner, Susan Glenholme, who leads the team, also maintains her band 1 individual lawyer ranking with one source commenting “Susan provides first-class care and attention and is always prepared to go the extra mile to make things as easy as possible. She is friendly, very hard-working, and I have the utmost respect and trust in the advice that she provides.”

Senior litigation lawyer Michael Henry, who specialises in inheritance and trust disputes, also keeps his ‘associate to watch’ recognition for private wealth disputes with a client commenting that he is “extremely professional, courteous, helpful, sensitive to the situation at hand and extremely thorough.” 

Susan Glenholme comments “I’m very proud that Debenhams Ottaway continues to be the only firm recognised in the top band locally for private wealth law. The feedback from fellow professionals and clients really reinforces the high level of knowledge, expertise and client care our teams provide to successful individuals and families locally, in London and across the UK.”
