Burges Salmon is a go-to firm for wealthy clients in Bristol and the South West, but it is also notable for having a particularly strong London presence. "They are probably the market leader in Bristol," observes a source, adding: "They probably have the top end of the market."
The firm handles domestic tax and estate planning matters, but sources also recognise Burges Salmon for tackling complex multi-jurisdictional work. "They are a South West firm but they have developed an incredible presence in the international market," states an interviewee. Another says that they "have the biggest team in Bristol, and they certainly do offer international advice and domestic advice and do it very well."
John Barnett is head of the private client department and Beatrice Puoti leads the private wealth practice.
