This year, as well as maintaining all previous rankings, the firm has climbed the rankings for their work in Construction (West Midlands), Charities (London), Court of Protection (London) and Local Government (London). The new rankings reflect the increased recognition for our national expertise across the social business, not for profit and public sectors as well as for private individuals.
Several lawyers also received individual praise in the new rankings. In addition to being listed as “recommended lawyers”, Rankeshwar Batta (Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence), Shivaji Shiva (Charities), Peter Hubbard (Social Housing) and Jonathan Cox (Social Housing) have also been listed in the elite "Leading lawyers" list: The Legal 500 UK 2016's guide to outstanding lawyers nationwide.
Andrew Lancaster (Litigation), Anna Dabek (Employment), James Hall (Private Client), Jas Tamber (Family), Jon Coane (Social Housing Finance), Kirsty MacMillan (Court of Protection), Lisa Whitehouse (Private Client), Matthew Wort (Employment) and Richard Brooks (Construction) were also new additions this year to the Legal 500’s list of recommended lawyers.
Peter Hubbard, senior partner, said: “We are proud of everyone who has achieved and maintained a ranking in this year’s Legal 500. The new rankings and positioning of individual lawyers is testament to our hard work and resilient focus on our specialist sectors. All of our teams are committed to working to extremely high standards for our clients, aligned to improving the lives of individuals, communities and society.”
