A SOUTHAMPTON law firm has received a major honour.

Three partners in Lester Aldridge’s private client department have been recognised as ‘leading lawyers’ in the Citywealth Leaders List 2014.

The list is designed for the wealthiest people in the country to inform of the top firms and professionals to hire.

Partners Geoff Thomas and Victoria Jones have been named as ‘prominent figures’ for contentious trusts and Jane Porter, head of family, as a ‘prominent figure’ for family & matrimonial.

Michael Giddins, managing partner at Lester Aldridge, which also has offices in London and Bournemouth, said: “I am pleased that several of our partners have once again been recognised as leaders by this respected publication.”
