Strongest ranking to date in the South West

21 October 2015

We are delighted to report that we have had our best year yet in the independent guide, Legal 500.

We have been ranked for eleven specialisms and twelve lawyers, some of whom have been rated for several categories, have been recommended by the guide’s South West researchers.

88% of our departments moved up a tier and corporate & commercial partner, Theresa Grech and commercial property partners, Laurence Lucas and Susie Wynne secured new individual rankings.

These are some of the extracts from the directory:

On the employment side, “the ‘commercial and sensible’ Matthew Clayton leads a growing, ‘user-friendly’ team with a focus on international clients.”

Commercial property partner, Nigel Whittaker was said to demonstrate “a very deep and complete knowledge of property law”.

Litigation partner, Paul Gordon was quoted as “a ‘competent litigator’, and has ‘an impressive flexibility in the making of offers that will appeal to the other side, while also being to the advantage of his clients’”.

The agriculture & estates team provides “‘prompt, professional and trustworthy’ advice on transactions, shooting rights and first registrations of land. Frank Smith is ‘knowledgeable, practical and pragmatic’”.

Our wills, probate & trusts team is recommended for giving “‘professional, efficient and friendly’ advice on inheritances and trusts with mental capacity and international issues”.

Bridget Redmond, managing partner of the firm, reflected on the news:

“The Legal 500 is an independent guide, and firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit. We are delighted to be recognised as one of the best in the region.”

The Legal 500 is published annually and compiles the rankings based on its researchers’ findings who review our achievements and interview our clients and peers to evaluate our service and where we fit in the region.
