Blanchards Bailey awarded recommendation by The Legal 500
We are proud to announce that we have once again been recognised by The Legal 500 as one of the top firms in the UK.
As the leading guide to law firms in the UK, The Legal 500 ranked us among the best in the areas of commercial litigation, agriculture and personal tax, trusts and probate. The decision was made following intensive and impartial examination of our work, and, ultimately, client references provided the basis for recognising us as one of the elite.
The recognition for us comes shortly after our renewed accreditation as Investors in People, and affirms our excellence in offering proactive legal advice to both individuals and businesses.
Four of our partners have been specifically recommended by The Legal 500 for their personal expertise.
Paul Dunlop, Head of Litigation and Disputes, was recognised for excellence under both the commercial litigation and agriculture and estates categories. The Legal 500 recommends Paul as he ‘gets straight to the heart of the issue and provides concise, commercial advice’.
Sarah Heath, Head of Commercial Services who is a specialist in commercial and agricultural property, was recommended for her expertise and high quality of advice in such matters.
Both Jerome Dodge and Merlin Lewis were recommended for their outstanding efforts under the personal tax, trusts and probate category. Merlin and Jerome both specialise in Wills and estate planning.
Alan Horne, Chief Executive, said: “This recognition by The Legal 500 affirms our reputation as a firm which offers comprehensive advice to meet the changing needs of both commercial and private clients. Our client-focus and professional expertise lead us to achieve the best results, which we believe has been pivotal in this year’s Legal 500 decision.”
Sarah Heath, Head of Commercial Services, expands: “Being recognised suggests that we as a firm are able to stand out from our peers in the value that we create for our clients. The individual recognitions further reflect on the culture of excellence at Blanchards Bailey and the results that we strive to achieve in our everyday efforts.”
The Legal 500 recognition places us in the upper tier of over 10,000 firms in the UK, solidifying our position in the market as a firm offering expert legal advice of the highest quality.
