11 Cripps private client lawyers on Citywealth Leaders List 2016
Law firm Cripps is celebrating the publication of the Citywealth Leaders List 2016 naming 85% of its partners as among the best private client practitioners in the UK – the highest number in any legal practice in the South East according to size (excluding London).
The list names lawyers, accountants, family offices, private bankers and trustees who deal with private clients with a fortune in excess of £20million but often up to a billion. It is a result of an ongoing year-long programme of peer recommendation and verification following interviews, references and testimonials with global industry experts and complemented by client, intermediary and peer feedback.
In addition, two of the firm’s female partners, Fiona McIntosh and Mary-Anne Gribbon, also feature in the top 100 Powerwomen list which champions women in the wealth sector and highlights present and future female leaders to prospective clients.
Cripps partners included in the 2016 list are:
- Myles McIntosh, Head of Private Client
- Simon Leney, Partner
- Russell Simpson, Partner
- Alex Davies, Partner
- Fiona McIntosh, Partner
- Mary-Anne Gribbon, Partner
- Anne Lewis, Partner
- Kate Arnold, Partner
- Vanda James, Partner
- Philip Youdan, Partner
- Peter Scott, Consultant
Cripps has announced its best year ever with a fee income of £28.1m and net profit of £7.3m, which reflect its continued growth and modern and progressive approach. The firm has also been named Business of the Year in the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce Awards and has been ranked in the UK’s Top 25 law firms for its private client work by eprivateclient for the third year running.
Cripps’ Tunbridge Wells offices will shortly move into new, purpose built premises, the largest office building to have been built in the town for more than 25 years. With over 350 staff it is one of the town’s largest employers.
