The 2016 Court Rankings by The Lawyer – Congratulations to the Litigation team!
Our litigation team are pleased to announce that we have been ranked in the new The Lawyer’s Court Rankings 2016 report. We placed 21st by case days (which can indicate the importance and complexity of a litigation) and 27th by number of cases, both out of 100 firms ranked. These rankings come from an enormous piece of research which The Lawyer undertook, examining 5000 cases in English Courts over two years. The report also shows which firms and chambers are most in demand for litigation services.
Graeme Kleiner, partner and head of the Trusts and Estates Disputes group, placed at 19 in the Top 50 partners table, says: “We are delighted that the litigation practice has been recognised in The Lawyer’s Court Rankings, it shows the busy year we have had and is a testament to our reputation in the courts.”
