As one of the North of England’s leading specialist commercial law firms with offices in Carlisle and Lancaster, we are delighted to report that our major departments have once again been recognised and recommended in the latest (2014) edition of Chambers & Partners.
Our corporate and commercial team, headed by John Wilson and Andrew Hill, has been ranked as the leading team within Cumbria with no other firms being ranked in this category.
John Wilson is described by clients as “very professional, technically great and very savvy as regards business realities and where the market is going”. Andrew Hill is described as “very approachable, efficient and a workhorse”. In describing the team, clients have said of their strengths “they are great at translating complex legal jargon into layman’s terms. Their advice is simple and they make sure everyone understands”.
Our commercial property and employment teams are also ranked as leaders in their fields in Cumbria. The employment team is described as “very helpful, knowledgeable and personable. They always get back to you quickly”. Joanne Holborn leads the team and her clients assert that “she has a formidable knowledge of employment law, is pragmatic when it comes to handling issues and very honest and open when giving advice”. The commercial property team, headed up by Sean Logue, is described as “very sensible and pragmatic, they will find solutions. They get the job done in a sensible way”.
Chambers & Partners assess law firms not only on the basis of their size and resources but also by contacting clients and intermediaries who recommend them in their particular field. We are delighted with the recognition they have received, which is independent confirmation of their expertise and quality of service.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients and business contacts for their continued contribution to the success of the firm.
With the launch of our new office in Lancaster, we hope to bring the same level of service and expertise to business clients in Lancashire and further afield.
