The Legal 500 and Chambers are the most prestigious legal guides in the UK as due to the quality of their readership. They are a vital tool for us to be able to generate extra work and also help us keep an eye on our competition.  Despite the pandemic our business matched the previous record year’s turnover which has been driven by excellent quality caseloads across the vast majority of our departments which in turn is driven by the excellent reputation of our lawyers.  The results in this year’s Legal 500 and Chamber’s directories clearly reflect the quality of the services we continuously provide.   We are particularly proud of the achievements of Tracy Cross and Michelle Gavin who over many years has shown themselves to be outstanding lawyers”
