We are proud to announce that we have been recognised for a record number of multiple commercial and private client law areas in The Legal 500 UK 2020.Read more
Classed as a “regional heavyweight” and described as “absolutely excellent”, 14 of our practice areas and 12 of our solicitors were recommended. We have also attained a ‘Top-Tier Firm’ rank in Dispute Resolution, making us the only solely-Derbyshire based law firm in Tier 1.
In addition, two of our partners have made it onto the Legal 500’s highly respected “Leading Individuals” list, an independent guide to outstanding UK lawyers. This means the firm now has more ‘Leading Individuals’ than any other Derby-based firm.
Existing Leading Individual Qamer Ghafoor is described as a “formidable litigator”, someone who “genuinely cares about his cases, works phenomenally hard, and brings the kind of approach you would expect from a partner at a big City firm”.
Newly-ranked Leading Individual Andrew Cochrane is described as someone who “completely understands the client’s business” and “always assists, no matter what”.
For private client legal services, the Legal 500 described Claire Rudkin as “highly competent” with an “exemplary” team. Whilst Kirpal Bidmead was described as “knowledgeable” and someone who “earns the client’s confidence”.
What is more, we are the only law firm in Derby and the East Midlands to have been shortlisted for the Regional Law Firm for Dispute Resolution Award in the Legal 500 Awards.
