The Legal 500 UK 2024 directory has recently launched. This year, after extensive research and feedback from clients and contacts, their researchers have recommended our work in 16 categories.

Across our practices, our lawyers are recommended 68 times by the Legal 500’s expert researchers, with new mentions/reappearances for Jamal Saleh and Nilufar Shahpanahi (M&A); Clare Gilroy-Scott and Alexandra Bonner (Employment); Kate Dwyer (Insurance Litigation); Anna Primrose and Eva Moynihan (Personal tax, trusts and probate); Alastair Hutchinson (Residential Property); Eleanor Stark and Nida Khan (Property Litigation) and Claire Lehr (Intellectual Property).

Our Senior Partner, David Greene is now the member of two ‘Halls of Fame’ for Commercial Litigation and newly for Group Litigation.

Matthew Barnett (Personal tax, trusts and probate) is a new ‘Leading Individual,’ and joins Michael Whitton (Insurance Litigation: for policyholders), David Goepel (Personal tax, trusts and probate), Daniel Bellau (M&A), who retain their rankings ‘Leading Individuals.’

Zahira Hussain (Commercial Litigation), Emma Sangeelee (Senior Exec Employment) also retain their ‘Next Generation Partner’ rankings and Tom Johnson (Commercial Litigation: Mid-Market) becomes our third ‘Next Generation Partner.’

Two practices received their first recommendations this year – Group Litigation: Claimant, where the team was described as a ‘Lean and nimble team, which punches well above its weight in heavy duty commercial litigation. They have particular expertise on claimant side mandates in group actions.’ along with our Contentious Trusts and Probate team which is a ‘flexible and focused team which is committed to the client and determined to succeed.’

Still in the Private Client sector, our team was recommended for Personal tax, trusts and probate along with Charities and not-for-profit. One client said the team is ‘a very discreet, Rolls-Royce practice, where the client is far more important than the solicitor, and service is everything.

Our Employment team was ranked for Employment: employers and for Employment: senior executives, with one referee commenting that the team are ‘Good at understanding the nuances of the case. Meet deadlines. Good communicators.’

Our Commercial Litigation team were recommended for Mid-Market matters whilst our Insurance Litigation team were ranked for Professional Negligence and For Policyholders, where one contact stated ‘…Always courteous and respectful to their client and others, Edwin Coe is a winning team.’ Our litigators were also recommended for Fraud: Civil – ‘Right on the spot with a clear strategy to achieve the final goal.’

Our ‘very professional and highly regarded’ Property team is recommended for Residential PropertyProperty Finance and also Property Litigation: ‘In the service we received, everything was spot-on – more a 7-star than a 5-star service from the property litigation team.’.

Other practice areas recognised in the UK directory are Intellectual PropertyM&A: smaller deals ‘very commercial corporate practice,’ and Equity Capital Markets: Small-Mid Cap.

Congratulations to all involved!
