Senior Partner Karen Bower-Brown is delighted with the results
“The Legal 500 is one of the principal benchmarks on which law firms measure themselves - and what makes the results so important is that they are driven by the findings of extensive client research and feedback. I am extremely proud to see that we have 3 new practice areas acknowledged and that 30 of us are now listed individually, once again reflecting the outstanding talent in the firm and our ability to consistently deliver the very best legal advice in the regions we serve.”
The firm is also celebrating its recent success at the British Wills, Trusts & Probate Awards where they were announced WINNERS of the Solicitor Firm of the Year (Midlands) category. We now await the results of The LexisNexis Family Law Awards - (Family Law Firm of the Year (Midlands & Wales), Children Team of the Year and Financial Remedies Team of the Year).
