FBC Manby Bowdler has a "big presence" in the Midlands, according to local sources. The private client team advises closely held businesses and landowners on wills, trusts, estates and the Court of Protection.

"They focus on doing well by their clients," says a lawyer, "they are held in good regard." The firm is also commended for its "excellence" and "specialism" in this area.

Notable practitioners

Margaret Rowe is "one of the best in the region," says a fellow lawyer. She handles both contentious and non-contentious matters for private clients, including estate planning and administration, the drafting of wills, and probate matters. One of her peers describes her as "very charismatic," with another commenting: "I think she's very good. She knows what she's doing. She has a fairly no-nonsense approach with clients and can keep them in order but is also friendly, approachable and can manage them well. I respect her greatly."
