A record number of lawyers and teams at the Cheltenham office of law firm Lodders have been recognised in the latest edition of the UK’s guide to the best legal specialists, The Legal 500.
The guide names Paul Mourton, Head of Lodders’ Cheltenham practice and the firm’s Real Estate practice, and Employment Partner Nick Rowe as recommended lawyers in the South West region.
It also recommends the firm’s Corporate and Commercial, Employment, and Real Estate practice areas that operate across Gloucestershire and the South West.
Lodders’ Jessica Beddows, a Partner in the Private Client practice, and Private Client Solicitor Natalie Smith are both also recommended, whilst Lodders’ Charity Law specialist Mark Lewis, and Commercial Property lawyer Nick East have been named in the Guide’s elite ‘leading lawyers’ list.
Commercial litigation specialists Jane Senior, Michael Wakeling and Amrit Samra are also recommended, along with Private Client solicitors Martin Green, Louise Igoe, Ian Flavell, Sofia Tayton, and Stephen Brignull, and Corporate and Commercial Partners Victor Matts and Kim Klahn.
Several of Lodders’ newest senior team members are also recognised, including Real Estate Partner Mark Miller, and Real Estate Solicitor Daniel Macleod, together with five members of Lodders’ dedicated Family Law team including Partner Beverley Morris.
In total, Lodders has a record-breaking twenty-seven solicitors recommended in the Legal 500 UK 2017 edition, and has been named as a Top Tier firm in four specialist practice areas – Private Client, Agriculture, Real Estate and Family.
A key element of how The Legal 500 ranks and rates law firms is through feedback from their clients, which, says Lodders’ Paul Mourton, makes the recognition ‘significant’ as it is based on the impartial and first-hand experiences of the individuals the firm works with every day: “To be recognised as a Top Tier firm for our work and advice in a growing number of practice areas is without doubt impressive,” he says, “but what is particularly important is that our clients have come out to show their support and given some excellent comments and feedback on the high standard of advice and service they have experienced from our lawyers.”
Last month, Lodders’ Private Client practice scooped more top honours by being voted the area’s top Private Client practice by Chambers UK’s High Net Worth Guide.
“The firm has received a number of excellent plaudits in many of the professions’ independent guides,” adds Paul, “and to have so many of our lawyers individually recognised and recommended for their expertise, skill, client service, aptitude and efficiency is testament to their hard work and diligence.”
