Willans secures top-tier rankings in The Legal 500

30 October 2018

Two of our departments have secured a coveted top-tier ranking in the latest edition of The Legal 500, an independent guide to the best law firms across the South West.

13 of the firm’s lawyers are recommended in the guide, with many rated in multiple disciplines. Two of our lawyers, Paul Gordon and Nigel Whittaker, are highlighted as ‘leading individuals’ in their respective fields of commercial litigation and commercial property.

Our dispute resolution team has won a place in the highest tier for the M4 Corridor and Gloucestershire area for the third year running, and its “impressive combination of technical expertise and interpersonal skills” is noted. “Pragmatic yet appropriately aggressive” department head Paul Gordon, associate solicitor Nick Southwell and property litigation partner Nick Cox are all individually commended for their expertise.

Also securing the highest ranking in this region, for the second year running, is our employment law practice, which has a particular focus on acting for businesses in the technology and engineering sectors but also advises clients in the professional services, charities and not-for-profit sectors on a range of contentious and non-contentious employment law issues. Partner and department head Matthew Clayton is recognised for his expertise in data issues in the context of employment law.

11 of the firm’s departments in total are ranked in the highly-respected guide, which is published yearly and ranks law firms across the globe. Highlighted for their expertise across the entire South West area are our intellectual property, charities, family law, property litigation, personal tax, trusts and probate, agriculture & estates and contentious probate & trusts teams.

The corporate & commercial and commercial property departments are also recognised for their influence in the M4 corridor and Gloucestershire region.

Managing partner Bridget Redmond commented: “We are delighted to have achieved another strong set of results in this highly-respected independent guide. The combination of technical expertise, approachability and commitment to exceptional client service is the hallmark of Willans, and I am pleased to see that has shone through in the guide as a result of client feedback.

“We are extremely proud of all of our lawyers named in this year’s edition, and their departments.”
