MMF July 2023

Pickerings Private Client Team is recognised as a Leading Firm in The Legal 500 2024, a directory of leading law firms.

Under the leadership of Emma Harrison, the excellent team provides a 'very personal and caring service' at Pickerings Solicitors. It advises many business owners, landowners and high-net-worth individuals on a whole host of trusts, estate planning, succession planning and asset protection matters. Lucy Cooling, who is a member of STEP and of the SFE, is a key figure. 


‘I would recommend them for their seamlessness of communication, focus on customer detail and building personal relationships that are supportive and professional. I would particularly like to mention Emma Harrison for her professionalism, enthusiasm and attention to detail’.

‘The team comprises a number of talented & competent lawyers who overall provide a great service to their clients. I would say that the practice is the best in the North Birmingham/North Warwickshire region & bears comparison with the best of the Birmingham City Centre practices’.
