Lodders has been awarded the highest recognition for a record number of its practice areas by the latest edition of the UK’s guide to the best legal specialists, The Legal 500.
It has been recommended as a Top Tier firm in the West Midlands region in four specialist practice areas – Private Client, Agriculture, Real Estate and Family – with a record twenty-seven of the firm’s solicitors recommended.
Paul Mourton, head of the Real Estate practice, Commercial Litigation specialists Jane Senior, Michael Wakeling and Amrit Samra, Private Client solicitors Martin Green, Louise Igoe, Ian Flavell, Natalie Smith, Sofia Tayton, and Stephen Brignull, and Corporate and Commercial partners Victor Matts and Kim Klahn, are all recommended in the Guide.
Also listed are several of Lodders’ newest senior team members, including Jessica Beddows, a partner in the Private Client practice, 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 addition, Lodders’ Charity law specialist Mark Lewis, and Commercial Property lawyer Nick East have been named in the Guide’s elite ‘leading lawyers’ list.
A key element of how The Legal 500 ranks and rates law firms is through feedback from their clients, which, says Lodders’ senior partner Martin Green (pictured), 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 and in the whole of the West Midlands region 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 Martin, “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.”
