BLM Partner and Head of Private Wealth James Beresford again appears in Band 2: Private Wealth Law - Manchester and surrounds

This year’s Chambers & Partners’ High Net Worth Individuals’ Guide states:

"James Beresford of BLM handles matters for high net worth individuals including estate planning and administration, inheritance tax planning and succession planning for business owners. "James Beresford was exceptional, not only in his knowledge but in his ability to communicate matters in a simple and understandable way. He did this with his very affable nature that made me feel comfortable from the start. The depth of his knowledge in his field was very comforting," says one source. Another interviewee remarks: "James was very patient in listening to our situation and providing options and advice on what would be most beneficial for us."

Welcoming this year's ranking, James said: 

"It’s fantastic to be recognised this year in Chambers & Partners’ HNW Guide.  Since its inception in 2018, the Private Wealth Practice at BLM has grown significantly, we have been able to guide our clients through their individual problems and needs in relation to their Wills and estate planning. As a lawyer, it’s my role to understand each of my clients priorities and to guide them through the often confusing legal maze and to offer bespoke solutions to give them the complete peace of mind that comes with knowing their complex legal affairs are well taken care of."

James continued: "This year, the team and I look to continue to meet and exceed the needs of our clients pre-empting and tackling the challenges that are prevalent when your asset values and levels are high.

Individual recognition this year builds on the Private Wealth Team's recognition last year in the Legal 500 and therefore I’m elated.”
