Firm receives top ranking in Legal 500 2017

  • Posted

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve once again been recognised by independent legal research guide The Legal 500 for our medical negligence, personal injury and family law expertise.

We have again been awarded a tier 1 ranking for our medical negligence work – the highest rating available – and we’re one of only four firms ranked at this level in the South West. Richard Harries, Partner and head of medical negligence and personal injury, has been recognised as a ‘leading individual’ with further recommendations for Adrian Stone, Claire Hurrell and Jay Nathwani.

Our personal injury team have been awarded a tier 3 ranking with recommendations for Myfanwy Buckeridge, Samantha Castle and Adrian Stone, while Managing Partner Bill Willcocks is described as “one of the most efficient lawyers around.”

There was further good news for our family team who have been awarded a tier 3 ranking for the first time. Eight members of the team were recommended including Alison Whiles, Anna Wilson, Chris Miller, Hanni Pennelegion, Jim Gridley, Kim Joseph, Kirsten Hale and Tom Powles.

The family team were noted as “the main players in family law in Bristol, particularly in the matrimonial finance space.” There were further plaudits for Alison Whiles for her “particular experience in financial issues” and Anna Wilson for her work as a collaborative lawyer.

On learning of the newly released rankings, Richard Harries commented:

“It is fantastic to be recognised for our achievements not just in clinical negligence, but also for personal injury and family law. These rankings are a testament to our commitment to excellent client care and I am delighted so many of our solicitors have been recommended for their hard work and dedication.

I would like to also acknowledge the wider clinical negligence team who contribute to our success. Our reputation both regionally and nationally is bolstered substantially by these ranking. I am proud to be part of a unique firm where everyone is committed to helping individuals during difficult and challenging times in their lives.”
