The categories are broken down into various business sectors and practice areas, and the shortlist is announced following the in-depth research carried out by the Legal 500 teams throughout the year; this includes our own submissions, references from clients, peers, interviews with other law firms, in-house counsel and industry sources.
Firms were shortlisted based on being “the most capable, expert firms operating at the top of their game” according to the Legal 500, and so we are absolutely delighted to have our work and expertise in this area recognised both externally and by the clients that we serve.
Rankeshwar Batta, Partner, and head of our clinical negligence and personal injury department said, “Helping our clients to improve their quality of life following critical and life-changing events is at the heart of everything we do, and to see that the feedback from our clients and the sector as a whole (including our peers) has contributed to our success in being shortlisted makes me extremely proud of the team and their hard work and dedication. Whilst we were not voted overall winner of the category, to simply be recognised as being within the top 8 firms nationally is a superb achievement for the team.”
