Additionally, an impressive 17 Clarke Willmott lawyers were singled out for praise in the elite ‘Leading Individuals’ list, the Legal 500’s guide to outstanding lawyers nationwide.

A further three lawyers were named in the ‘Partner: Next Generation’ category and a total of 95 lawyers across the firm were recommended.

Clarke Willmott LLP Chief Executive, Stephen Rosser, said:

“We are delighted with our numerous rankings in the Legal 500 again this year and we’re especially pleased to receive Top Tier rankings in no less than nine practice areas.

“The Legal 500 is the industry ‘Bible’ and carries with it a huge amount of respect. Rankings are based on the work we have carried out in the past year as well as client feedback which is a great indication of the quality of our work and the services we provide.

“The recognition reflects the time we invest in developing relationships with our clients, our high level of service and our straightforward approach.”

The Legal 500 is an independent guide and firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit.
