Brethertons Rated One of the Top Legal Service Providers in the West Midlands and Thames Valley Regions

Leading legal services provider, Brethertons, is celebrating after being named as one of the top law firms in the central region by two leading industry publications, The Legal 500 United Kingdom 2017 and the Chambers and Partners guide to UK solicitors 2018.

In The Legal 500, which was published on the 11th October 2017, Brethertons is ranked as a top tier firm for Family in the West Midlands region, while being recommended in a further 16 practice areas across the West Midlands and South East. In addition to this, Brethertons boasts 26 recommended lawyers, with Simon Craddock and Linda Jones being named as ‘leading individuals’ and Gemma Kelsey and Rachel Adams being named as ‘next generation lawyers’ within the family practice area.

The Chambers and Partners UK Guide 2018, which was released on 2nd November 2017, has recommended Brethertons a top ranked firm for the Family department, and names the Personal Injury, Employment, Litigation, Real Estate Litigation and Banking and Finance departments.

Brethertons’ CEO Shaun Jardine explains the importance of these guides for both clients and staff “The Legal Directories are independent publications which reflect the state of the legal industry today. Law firms are peer reviewed and recommended and therefore provide clients with an unbiased overview of the market. It is really helpful for clients to see how we are benchmarked against competitors and take an informed decision on which solicitor to use.”
