Best results yet for Willans in the latest national legal guide

The 2016 edition of The Legal 500 recognises that Willans has had another successful year, giving us a top tier department ranking and including one of our partners in the ‘elite list’ of outstanding lawyers nationwide.


The results show that 11 of our departments are ranked, including a new top tier accolade for commercial litigation which has a growing IP litigation practice. Litigator, Paul Gordon is praised for his ability to “take in detailed information and formulate a winning strategy”.


Our corporate & commercial team are regarded as“very knowledgeable on corporate matters and display first-class commercial awareness” while our divorce & family team fields “the best financial remedies team in Cheltenham”.

Our charity department was praised in particular for "a great reputation in the third sector for property."

As well as team rankings, 14 lawyers have been recommended, a number of them across several categories. Our lead commercial property lawyer Nigel Whittaker is recognised to be a ‘leading individual’; “excellent at providing pragmatic solutions to complex problems” he is listed as one of the UK’s outstanding lawyers.


Bridget Redmond, our managing partner, said: “Congratulations to all departments and lawyers named in this year's edition of The Legal 500 UK. This is another excellent result and illustrative of the firm’s capabilities and commitment to providing clients with a top-notch service.”
