Law firm re­tains punch as le­gal ‘heavy­weight’

Part­ners sin­gled out for praise in Le­gal 500 ta­bles

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

Two of its part­ners have also been sin­gled out as ‘lead­ing lawyers’ na­tion­wide, and six of its prac­tice ar­eas have achieved top tier sta­tus.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Ian Hop­kins con­grat­u­lated fam­ily law ex­pert Sue An­drews and com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion and dis­pute res­o­lu­tion spe­cial­ist Craig Wil­liams.

“We are all ab­so­lutely thrilled that their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion has been recog­nised by such a pres­ti­gious or­gan­i­sa­tion as the Le­gal 500 and, on be­half of the whole team, we are also de­lighted to have re­tained our rank­ing as a re­gional heavy­weight,” he said.

“To have achieved th­ese re­sults, along­side our top rank­ing for six of our prac­tice ar­eas, makes me ex­tremely proud and demon­strates the breadth of un­ri­valled ser­vice that we can of­fer to both busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als alike.”

The six ar­eas to have achieved top tier sta­tus are cor­po­rate and com­mer­cial, com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion, em­ploy­ment, fam­ily, en­vi­ron­ment and pri­vate client.

Seal­ing its re­gional heavy­weight sta­tus by ‘at­tract­ing ex­cep­tional feed­back’, the firm rose in the rank­ings for sev­eral of its core prac­tice ar­eas.

The cor­po­rate and com­mer­cial team, en­vi­ron­ment prac­tice and com­mer­cial lit­i­ga­tion team were praised for their work af­ter mak­ing the jump from tier two to tier one.

Staff on the fam­ily prac­tice, em­ploy­ment, and pri­vate client teams were also all praised.

Mov­ing up from band three to band two, the con­tentious trusts and pro­bate team re­ceived spe­cial praise, and the tier two ranked busi­ness im­mi­gra­tion team also re­ceived a men­tion.

The com­mer­cial prop­erty team and real es­tate group were all ranked in band three.

The prop­erty lit­i­ga­tion team has also re­cently been strength­ened by the ar­rival of new as­so­ciate Sandy Pa­tel.
