Recognition for Clarke Willmott’s Southampton office in Chambers and Partners 2024 guide

The Southampton office of national law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has once again been recognised in the annual Chambers and Partners guide.

The office improved its ranking for banking and finance moving from Band 3 to Band 2, while real estate also moved up from Band 3 to Band 2.

Other areas retained their rankings with planning at Band 2, litigation at Band 3 and employment staying at Band 4.

In the individual rankings, Peter Swinburn retained Band 2, Rich Eldridge retained Band 3 and Marc Long and Owen Williams are Band 4.

Commercial property solicitor Kristian Johnson retained his ‘associate to watch’ status while Sarah Orchard appears on the list for the first time also as an ‘associate to watch’.

Clarke Willmott CEO Peter Swinburn, said: “We are delighted with this year’s Chambers and Partners rankings, particularly following our equally impressive Legal 500 results earlier this month.

“To rank in 26 specialist practice areas with an incredible 66 of our people receiving recommendations is a great achievement and strongly indicates the breadth and depth of our service offering.

“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.”

Chambers and Partners differentiates the best legal talent by identifying and ranking law firms and lawyers globally.
