Impressive results for Clarke Willmott in 2022 Legal 500 Guide

Clarke Willmott has been recognised as a Top Tier firm in the latest Legal 500 guide which ranks the UK’s top lawyers and organisations.

We received prestigious Top Tier rankings for 10 of our specialist practice areas, up one from last year’s results, with a total of 61 recommendations across all of our seven regional offices.

Seven of our practice areas have seen improvements with particular congratulations going to Private Client – Personal Tax, Trusts & Probate (South West) on reaching the Top Tier.

With offices in Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton Clarke Willmott received a total of 211 recommendations for lawyers this year, compared to 190 last year.

Four practice areas were ranked for the first time, including Insurance – Clinical Negligence: Claimant (North West), Real Estate – Construction (West Midlands), Real Estate – Environment and Planning (South East) and Real Estate – Property Litigation (North West).

Additionally, three Clarke Willmott lawyers remain on the Hall of Fame list, namely Fraser MacRae, Neil Baker and Rich Eldridge.

An impressive 22 lawyers were singled out for praise in the elite ‘Leading Individuals’ list, the Legal 500’s guide to outstanding lawyers nationwide.

A further nine lawyers were named in the ‘Partner: Next Generation’ and ‘Rising Star’ categories.

Stephen Rosser, Clarke Willmott’s Chief Executive said: “We are delighted with our numerous rankings in the Legal 500 again this year and we’re especially pleased to receive Top Tier rankings in no less than 10 practice areas.

“The Legal 500 directory carries a huge amount of respect in the industry. Rankings are based on the work we have carried out in the past year as well as client feedback which is a great indication of the quality of our work and the services we provide.

“The recognition reflects the time we invest in developing relationships with our clients, our high level of service and the great people we have on board.”
