The Spear’s 500 covers the top individuals in the private client sector both in the UK and internationally, focusing on wealth management, law and advisory services. The respected directory is recognised as an industry-leading standard thanks to its comprehensive research scheme.
National head of Tax, Trust, Estates and Disputes, Paula Myers, has made the Top 10 Contentious Trust Lawyers list while Tax, Trusts and Estates partner Alex Ruffel, who heads up the London team and specialises in international tax, was named in the Recommended Tax & Trust Lawyers section. Alex was praised for her ‘technical abilities in sophisticated tax issues’.
