Moore Barlow lawyers have once again been widely recognised as top industry leaders across multiple legal categories in the 2023 edition of Spear’s 500.

This is the eighth edition of The Spear’s 500 – the indispensable guide to the top private client advisers, wealth managers, lawyers, and service providers for high-net-worth individuals.

Spear’s editor Edwin Smith says in his introduction to the guide:

“Spear’s has become a byword for quality advice by recommending only people and companies that exhibit excellence. These rankings are the product of the research carried out by the Spear’s Research Unit, which comprises in-person and telephone interviews, peer reviews, analysis from subject-matter experts and information supplied by clients as well as the advisers and firms themselves.”

Moore Barlow is enormously proud that five of our lawyers have achieved rankings once again this year in this prestigious publication, three of our lawyers achieved ‘Top Recommended’ and two ‘Recommended’ demonstrating our position of providing top quality services for high-net-worth individuals.
