Chambers and Partners, 2021 They are a strong firm and have a loyal following in the market with a solid client base.
Legal 500, 2021 Certainly far more efficient and professional than several other firms that I have recently had dealings with. The advice given has been more specific/appropriate and hence more useful. They clearly think the issues through more carefully.
Legal 500, 2021 Moore Barlow LLP has an excellent pipeline of country wealth experience, with good knowledge of estates, agriculture and the surrounding trusts and tax issues.
Legal 500, 2021 This is a medium/large firm, but treats clients in a personal, non-corporate manner that the clients like and allows trust in the legal advice to grow. The quality of the legal work and document drafting is excellent. Their knowledge of the agricultural and rural world is also excellent as is their knowledge of the tax implications of the transactions/documents they are involved with.
