Hay & Kilner Private Client team promoted to Tier 1 in Legal 500 rankings

01 Oct 2021

In a year of celebrating the firm’s 75th anniversary, it has been mixed with the continued difficulties and challenges that the pandemic has presented.


It is in this context that we are so proud of our Private Client Team who have been named in Tier 1 of the Legal 500.


It is down to the commitment, hard work and determination of every member of the Team to deliver a quality service to meet the ever increasing complex needs of our clients which has enabled us to move up the rankings of the Legal 500 and be named as a Tier 1 Team for Private Client work in the North East.


Head of Department, Alison Hall, is again named as a Leading Individual in the field, whilst newly promoted Richard Marshall joins Partner Alice Clewes in being named as Next Generation Partners.


The Team has grown recently with the appointment of Solicitor Kirsty Allen who, along with Solicitors Rachael Leathley and Tom Bridge, are able to deliver the quality service and expertise which has given the Team such a strong reputation in the region.

Commenting on the release of the rankings, Partner Richard Marshall comments 


“Whilst it is lovely to be individually named as a Next Generation Partner, I am elated that the Team as a whole has been recognised for the work we do for our clients and has been ranked in Tier 1. It is a credit to everyone in the Team that the client testimonials we received reflected the effort we put in to achieving our clients’ goals and supporting them in often difficult times. As ever, we would be nothing without the fantastic clients with whom we get to work.”
