Commercial law firm celebrates top rankings in worldwide directory
11th November, 2013
Aaron & Partners has once again received top reviews in the prestigious Chambers and Partners UK annual rankings.
The firm maintained its position as one of the region’s leaders in legal services, with five of the eight ranked lawyers achieving the highest rating possible.
Eight legal teams at Aaron & Partners were also recommended in the guide, receiving twice as many as any other Chester firm.
Lawyers at Aaron & Partners who achieved recommendations include Clive Pointon, head of wills, trust and tax; John Devoy, head of litigation; Richard Barge, head of family law; Simon Ellis, head of charity law; Tim Culpin, head of transport law; licensing consultant Barry Holland; employment partner Claire Brook, and Mark Briegal, corporate partner, for his work in partnership law.
Since 1990 Chambers and Partners has published the world’s leading guides to the legal profession and has built a reputation for in-depth, objective research delivered by a team of 100 researchers who conduct thousands of interviews with lawyers and their clients to ascertain the leading solicitors in specific areas of law.
The Chambers and Partners UK 2014 guide also includes two new rankings for Aaron & Partners’ law teams, with the private client and real estate teams both receiving recommendations.
The guide lists the real estate team as offering a “wide variety of commercial property expertise”, with strengths in mines and quarries, renewables and waste management and utilities.
The private client team is listed as having a “strong focus” on capital tax planning and management and contentious probate capacity, as well as significant expertise in charitable trusts and Court of Protection matters.
Also of particular note was the national ranking for Aaron & Partners’ transport team, which was recognised for its expertise in regulatory and logistical work, including regulatory compliance, warehousing and operator licensing.
Aaron & Partners chief executive Andy Duxbury said: “To receive top rankings in Chambers and Partners UK 2014, such a well-respected guide, is a tremendous accolade, particularly coming so soon after our success in the Legal 500 directory.
“This latest achievement is testament to the hard work of everyone at Aaron & Partners. It’s rewarding to know that our dedication to getting excellent results for our clients has been so publicly recognised.”
