Northern Law Award success for Private Client Team Friday 8th of June 2018

Northern Law Award success for Private Client Team

It was another fantastic night, celebrating some of the very best legal talent the north east has to offer, and we were absolutely delighted to see our Private Client Team take home the award for Private Client Team of the Year at last night’s Northern Law Awards 2018.

Headed up by Managing Partner, John Davison, the team was praised by the Judges for their strong team ethic, investment in staff training and development and their determination to ensure that every matter they deal with is handled with the utmost care and attention, irrespective of value. 

Our Private Client team is one of the largest in the region and we are very proud that two of our lawyers (plus a third on the way) are members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, providing the team with an extra level of specialism to advise on complex tax planning arrangements, the administration of business interests and will trusts.  It is this combination of expert knowledge and up-to-the-minute training gives Swinburne Maddison’s Private Client team the professional edge to deal with any complex instructions that might come their way. 

Above all, our Private Client team prides itself on providing a trusted and personal service; being a team that our clients can turn to at a very difficult time in their lives and approaching every matter with compassion and care.

A much-deserved win for a very respected team.  Well done to everyone involved!
