Legal 500 Ranking

The Legal 500 recognises individual solicitors and teams who provide ‘the most cutting edge and innovative advice’. In this year’s publication the firm has both improved upon our existing ranking and expanded the number of teams recognised for their work.

In this year’s publication of The Legal 500, we are listed as providing excellent advice across the following disciplines: Agriculture and Estates, Real Estate (Commercial Property), Personal Tax, Trusts & Probate. This diverse range of expertise underscores the firm’s ability to cater to the varied legal needs of its clients.

Recognition in The Legal 500 is a significant accomplishment, as it solidifies the firm’s standing among the leading legal professionals globally. The improved ranking and expanded recognition of teams reflect the firm’s continuous pursuit of excellence and its commitment to delivering outstanding legal services across multiple practice areas.

Land & Development

The firm’s commercial property team is growing increasingly stronger. Allan Sumner fronts the department with his strong background in land, infrastructure and development work. The Legal 500 has recognised the property team’s ‘diligence’, with testimonies stating that ‘the team helps navigate through complex deals to beneficial conclusions’.

Rural Affairs, Land & Estates

We are one of the few law firms in region that truly specialises in agriculture and rural affairs, and this excellent reputation has been built over many years, and most recently publicly acknowledged with our ranking in Chambers and Partners.

The firm is proud to be able to set itself apart by virtue of the in-depth agricultural knowledge. Many solicitors in the practice are also members of the Agricultural Law Association. This level of capability enables the department to understand the areas our clients operate in and considerably enhances the service we are able to provide clients. We have rural specialists and expertise throughout all departments in the firm who work collaboratively to provide a seamless range of legal advice to farmers, landed estates and the rural community throughout England and Wales.
