Ten of Lodders’ senior team who are specialists in family, agriculture, private client, real estate, and charity law, have been named as among the best in the UK by the legal profession’s elite guide to the country’s leading lawyers.

The Chambers 2022 Guide ranks UK individual lawyers and law firms based on their expertise and client feedback. The 2022 edition sees Beverley Morris, head of Lodders Family Law practice, James Spreckley, head of its agricultural practice, and head of the firm’s private client team Louise Igoe retain the highest Band 1 position for lawyers in their individual area of the law.

The latest edition of Chambers also names the firm’s David Lodder and Martin Green as ‘Senior Statesperson’, with Dan McLeod – senior associate in Lodders’ real estate practice – given the accolade of ‘Associate to Watch’ in recognition of his advice on all aspects of the residential development life cycle for landowners, land promoters and developers.

Agriculture lawyer Ian Flavell is recognised for his work in protecting clients’ land assets, and specialist tax and succession planning advice with a Chambers’ Band 2 ranking. Charity law expert Mark Lewis, family lawyers Caroline Dresden – a specialist in financial remedy proceedings for high-net worth individuals – and partner Vivienne Middleton, together with Jane Senior and Victoria Khandker both partners in the Dispute Resolution team, are all recognised by the guide.

Best in breed

Lodders’ managing partner Paul Mourton (pictured) says the firm’s rankings by Chambers UK, not only continue its year-on-year recognition for many of its specialist teams, but are also evidence of the firm’s best in breed lawyers, legal excellence, exceptional client service and sustained performance:

“Chambers is respected for its integrity, independence and objectivity in researching and finding the very best lawyers in their fields, and it is a fantastic achievement for Lodders and so many of our lawyers to be highly recognised once again. It is credit to the firm’s talent, exceptional work, commitment to excellence, client service and quality of advice provided each and every day.”

Legal 500

Last month, several of Lodders specialist teams also retained the coveted tier 1 spot in the Legal 500 that analyses the capabilities of law firms and assesses and ranks their strengths, including its real estate, family law, agriculture, and private client teams.
