Forty-eight lawyers at Browne Jacobson are rated as leading experts in their field according to the latest edition of Chambers UK, one of the UK’s most distinguished guides to the legal profession.
Of the 48 lawyers 33 are based in the firm’s Nottingham office, 12 in Birmingham and 3 in London.
For the first time a Browne Jacobson lawyer has been identified as a leading expert in three fields. Peter Ware in the firm’s Public Sector team has been identified as an expert in Local Government, PFI & PPP matters and Public Procurement.
Seven of the firm’s lawyers appear under two categories: Tony Child, Barry Sully, Nick Parsons, Dominic Offord, Peter Ellis, Richard Barlow and Simon Tait.
The Browne Jacobson lawyers joining the prestigious ranking for the very first time are Ben Troke (Court of Protection), Mark Hughes (Corporate), Nina Best (Media & Entertainment), Peter Ware (Local Government), Tim Rayner (Real Estate Litigation), Kate Andrews (Real Estate Litigation)and Tony Child (Administrative and Public Law).
Individuals are ranked after extensive research by the Chambers team and nominations are put forward by peers, professionals, referees and clients, as well as by the team submissions detailing cases completed and interviews conducted with the researcher.
The rankings are based on technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client.
Iain Blatherwick, managing partner at Browne Jacobson, said: “We are delighted with this year’s individual rankings. A number of the lawyers listed for the first time have only been with the firm a relatively short period of time, demonstrating our ability to attract candidates of the highest calibre. As well as being a major honour for the firm this news gives our clients the added reassurance that they are being advised by some of the leading lawyers in their field.”
