A Shropshire law firm has maintained its excellent rankings in a prestigious national guide, with 13 lawyers highlighted as recommended practitioners.
Lanyon Bowdler, which has offices across Shropshire, Herefordshire and North Wales, has nine practice areas recommended in the 2024 Chambers UK legal guide, six of which are ranked in the top two bands.
The Chambers UK guide ranks law firms based on independent research and interviews with clients, and has been helping people find the best lawyers and firms in the country for more than 30 years.
Lanyon Bowdler is celebrating four lawyers ranked in Band 1, four in Band 2, three in Band 3 and two in Band 4, while the firm has three Band 1 practice area rankings, three in Band 2, one in Band 3 and two in Band 4.
Brian Evans, managing partner of Lanyon Bowdler, said: “Chambers UK is a highly respected guide and law firms are always very keen to be included because it is shaped by comments from clients themselves, along with independent research and interviews with other professionals.
“We are therefore delighted to see nine practice areas and 13 individual lawyers recommended in the guide. It is a great achievement for every lawyer included, but we are particularly pleased to see Will Morse gaining a new Band 4 recommendation in the West Midlands Employment section and Debbie Humphries being included in Band 2 of the guide’s Midlands Personal Injury category.
“It is also great to see the firm’s new listing at Band 3 in the West Midlands Corporate (mergers and acquisitions) section, along with Clinical Negligence, Personal Injury and Family departments maintaining their Band 1 recommendations.
“Congratulations to all those who have been included – our significant presence in the guide re-enforces our position as one of the leading law firms in the region.”
