We are extremely pleased to announce that five of our practice areas including a record six individuals have been recognised in the Chambers UK Legal Guide 2023.
Described as being “well versed in methods of alternative dispute resolution and active across a broad range of sectors” the Dispute Resolution team has increased its litigation ranking to Band 2 (East Midlands), with “strong litigator” Nick Wells retaining his position as a notable practitioner.
The litigation rankings also include a first-time acknowledgement for Qamer Ghafoor as being an ‘Eminent Practitioner’, an exceptional individual and highly influential lawyer who is described as “a strong litigator with a robust style, particularly in negotiations. He is highly effective at dispute resolution and is strongly client-focused.”
Flint Bishop now has two of only five Chambers-ranked lawyers for litigation in the East Midlands, demonstrating that the team’s strength and reputation in the region is widely recognised.
Our Corporate & Finance department has held on to its Band 2 (East Midlands) position, with the team’s role as lead advisor to A1 Comms being noted as a key work highlight. The team expertly represented A1 Comms in the sale of its Go Mobile high street franchise estate to KTM Online.
The “dynamic and very informative” Martyn Brierley is once again ranked in the guide and praised for his “diligent, pragmatic and commercial” approach to delivering legal advice.
The Employment department has retained its position in Chambers UK 2023, being described as delivering the “perfect combination of risk management and commercial advice”. Head of department Louise Easthope has also received a first-time ranking as a notable practitioner.
Our Family & Matrimonial team has held on to its Band 1 (Derby & Surrounds) position, and is described as “very quick to respond, and offering a brilliant service all round”. Senior Associate Angela Davis made her Chambers debut as a notable practitioner, attracting client comments such as “Angela is exceptionally professional, she’s brilliant”.
Finally, our “practical and commercially focused” Licensing team retains its Band 3 ranking in The Regions (all of England and Wales, except London). As head of department, Chairman and Senior Partner Andrew Cochrane continues to be recognised as a notable practitioner, particularly for his work in the hospitality sector.
Commenting on the results, Qamer said: “I am extremely proud of everyone’s achievements in this year’s Chambers UK Guide; however, the success of our firm would not be possible without the support from all of our people and I would like to thank everyone for their continued commitment and hard work that they put in on a daily basis.”
