Rising law firm wins top-level legal ranking

Praise from clients and research by one of the UK’s leading legal directories has put Harrison Clark Rickerbys at the legal top table as it grows in the West Midlands and opens a London office.

Alongside recommendations for the firm in 17 practice areas, 61 of its lawyers are also recommended for their expertise, demonstrating that the firm stands with the major city law firms in Birmingham and London in breadth and depth of experience and skill.

Six lawyers – Arpinder Dhillon, Rod Thomas, Richard Morgan, Elizabeth Beatty, Inez Brown and Kevin Harris-James were named as leading individuals in their fields, with Rosalind Andrews acknowledged as a rising star.

The rankings in this year’s Legal 500 directory are based on independent research and clients’ comments – the firm’s teams across the Three Counties, Birmingham and the Thames Valley were given the highest ranking for their corporate and commercial work, licensing and regulatory expertise, commercial litigation skills, and both family law and employment services, showcasing the significant experience and knowledge of its lawyers.

The Legal 500 is considered to be ‘the bible of the legal business’, ranking law firms for their expertise and performance – the listing is based on firms’ achievements, the quality of their teams and client feedback.

Rod Thomas, Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ managing partner, said: “Just as our growth is driven by client demand, so our success in this year’s rankings is led by client satisfaction with the work we have done for them. We are delighted to have this acknowledgement of both our outstanding individual lawyers but also our high-quality teams. The fact that, in many specialist areas including construction and licensing, we are ranked with national and global firms is confirmation of our commitment to excellent client service.”
