Managing partner Bridget Redmond said:
“We’re delighted with this year’s outstanding Legal 500 results, which are an exceptional achievement for a firm of our size. I’m extremely proud of the teams and individuals named, all of whom deserve such prestigious recognition.
“Given that the Legal 500 rankings take client feedback into consideration, this is a clear indicator that our lawyers are not only first-class in terms of expertise, but also in their ability to give our clients the exceptional personalised service they expect.”
