Tier 1 for IDR Law

It’s just been announced that IDR Law are taking a top spot – tier 1 – in the Chambers and Partners UK Guide 2021 for Private Wealth Disputes. Congratulations to the whole team!

An Associate to watch

We’re also proud to announce that Richard Thomas, Senior Associate at IDR Law, has been listed in the guide as an ‘Associate to watch’ and acknowledged as a ‘compassionate advisor with a very good manner’. Well done Richard from all of us at IDR Law!

Richard comments: ‘Delighted to see IDR Law getting into the top tier in such a short time, from a boutique start-up to now challenging as a centre of excellence in private wealth disputes. I’m also proud and very humbled to get a personal mention as an ‘Associate to watch,’ but it’s most definitely a team sport and everyone at IDR Law deserves a mention!’

We’re really proud of everything the team has achieved and continues to achieve.

The Chambers and Partners rankings table identifies the leading professional advisors to the Private Wealth market. IDR Law are thrilled to be taking a top spot in Yorkshire and the North East. Watch this space as we grow and move into other geographical areas – it’s already happening!

Band 1 individual for High Net Worth 2021

Well done to our founder and director, Martin Holdsworth, who has kept his own top spot as a Band 1 ranked individual for high net worth 2021. We thought Martin wouldn’t mind us showing off some of the responses that Chambers and Partners collected from Martin’s clients:

‘Martin Holdsworth is “exceptional – he has a knack of getting to the crux of the matter and is a realist and excellent at managing difficult situations,” says a fellow solicitor. “He is an expert in his field and has a stellar reputation,” states another interviewee, adding: “He leads by example and is approachable, decisive, innovative, helpful, knowledgeable, practical and savvy. He is an excellent and trusted adviser.”’

Martin comments: ‘In less than 4 years we have built a firm that is entirely built around providing the best contentious probate support for clients and referrers alike. To be listed in Tier 1 in Chambers & Partners at this stage of our development is amazing. With 3 new recruits joining in the coming months, a new Manchester office about to open along with 2 further offices planned for the next 12 months, we are creating something very special. My thanks as always to the team here – they are making this happen!’
