“We were particularly pleased with the excellent testimonials from our clients who are quoted in the guide and can attest, first hand, to the work we do and the way we look after them. Top tier ratings are a great recognition of quality and we take great pride in achieving good results both in terms of our practice areas and our individual lawyers, who are so talented and hard-working.”
