The Birmingham-based firm achieved improved rankings across seven of the specialist sectors it works in including Private Client (Band 2) Real Estate Litigation (Band 3) and Intellectual Property (Band 3). It has also gained excellent standing for Court of Protection (Band 2), Education (Band 2) and Local Government (Band 4), which have not been previously recognised.
A total of 19 solicitors at the Birmingham-based firm have been individually recognised for excellence in their fields of expertise. Kate Jackson who specialises in Court of Protection work has been recognised as a ‘Star Associate’, and commended in the review for being ‘passionate, committed, intelligent and focused.’ She has worked across a number of high-profile cases and has achieved great success over her five years with Anthony Collins Solicitors.
Donna Holmes on the Private Legal Services team, Shivaji Shiva who acts for charities, Emma Young who specialises in Intellectual Property and Doug Mullen from the Employment team were all marked as ‘Associates to Watch’ in recognition of their already excellent standard of work and sector-leading potential.
Commenting on the results, Romaine Thompson, senior partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors said: “We are constantly striving to better the standard of work that we offer and the raft of increased rankings achieved is testament to the progress we have made over the past 12 months. We are proud to work with such highly regarded employees and will continue to recruit the most talented individuals across the specialist sectors in which we operate.”
Romaine also received special recognition from Chambers and Partners, being awarded the title of 'Senior Statesman' for exemplary work in her discipline of charity law. She has over 25 years of legal experience and has been with the firm for 23 years.
