Regional law firm Ellis Jones Solicitors has won recognition in a prestigious annual publication.
Its private wealth disputes team has been ranked for its excellence in the latest Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide for 2022.
Three of Ellis Jones’ top lawyers have also been listed – partners Lauren Day, Carla Brown and Victoria Riddleston.
Carla, who is head of wills, trusts and probate, ranked as a leading individual in band 1 for private wealth law in Southampton and surrounds.
