Expertise spreading across the country with growing teams

1st October 2021

Expertise, experience and skills across the firm have been acknowledged by clients in the Legal 500 directory of leading lawyers in the UK.

From personal tax and probate to corporate M&A work, with specialisms such as agriculture, intellectual property and IT, the firm’s teams are ranked across 46 practice areas, with 137 lawyers specifically recommended by clients and peers for the quality of service they provide.

One client said of our corporate team in Worcester: “The corporate team are fantastic. The knowledge and expertise within the team rivals the inner city law firms, but the cost of the advice is significantly lower.”

This theme was echoed for the employment team – the client said: “The employment team delivers absolutely first-class service which is not bettered by more expensive Magic Circle firms. The solicitors are highly expert and strategically skilled…so costs are not wasted but equally corners are not cut, so the best possible outcome is achieved.”

Reflecting the firm’s flexible approach to supporting clients, by drawing on expertise from across our 11 offices and all the specialisms, one client said: “For us they deal with everything from planning to employment law and their advice is always balanced, through and effective. They are different in that they feel like an extension of our business, a critical friend always at the end of a phone to calmly help us with whatever may have cropped up.”

Across the West and East Midlands, into Wales and East Anglia and in London, our real estate, IT, insolvency, property litigation, charities, education planning and dispute resolution teams have attracted praise.

Managing partner Rod Thomas said: “I am pleased to see so many teams being acknowledged for the expertise and commitment they offer clients. The firm continues to grow following the merger which brought us together with Hewitsons, and I have no doubt that that will continue.”
