On Thursday 29th July the independent legal directory Chambers & Partners launched the latest edition of its High Net Worth Guide publication.

We are thrilled to report that Renaissance Legal, together with our Managing Director Philip Warford, have been acknowledged as leading experts for our work in advising vulnerable clients.

Philip has been ranked in the independent Chambers & Partners UK Directory as a leading expert for many years, however it is the first time in the firm’s history that it has achieved a firm-wide ranking.  Renaissance Legal joins only three other firms in the Brighton and surrounding area to be recognised in the UK-based guide.

The 2021 edition has recognised the excellence in our work on wills, trusts and Court of Protection matters as well as tax planning. The editorial comments include:

A source explains: “The firm’s expertise in this area of law is outstanding, their staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and supportive, and their flexible but professional approach is exactly what those of us who are supporting people with complex needs find exceptionally helpful.” Another interviewee enthuses: “They are brilliant in this field and very knowledgeable, professional, helpful, patient, efficient and also friendly and approachable.”


Philip has been recognised by the research team for his considerable expertise advising vulnerable clients, including on succession planning: 

“Warford is excellent at putting vulnerable people at ease. He is an expert in his field but also has excellent people skills, particularly with those who have a learning disability.” Another interviewee explains: “He is clearly very knowledgeable. He is also an excellent communicator and presents quite complex legal issues in a way that is easy to understand.”
