“Our market leading personal injury teams are at the top of the rankings across the country while our Public Law and private client teams including Family law, Contentious Probate and Court of Protection are also performing strongly with improvements in many areas of the country.

“To have more than 50 lawyers recommended in the guide for their work in helping individual clients is a great accolade for us to have and we are proud that our Personal Legal Services are being recognised as being extremely high quality in so many areas of law.”

As well as the high number of number one rankings, 10 teams improved their rankings including the Public Law teams involved in healthcare, education and Civil Liberties & Human Rights.
