Double whammy for Welsh law firm

A local law firm is celebrating double success having been recognised for its expertise with two prestigious accolades.

Watkins & Gunn is the only firm in Wales to be recognised in the recent Law Firm Services’ annual Conveyancing Awards.

The Cardiff-based firm came third in the regional category for Wales and the West Midlands after receiving feedback from judges that described it as “a firm who is clearly proactive in winning and retaining clients via innovative means as well as more traditional routes.”

The LFS Conveyancing Awards recognise firms that deliver a high standard conveyancing service through exceptional customer service, innovation, quality and risk management.

Also, adding to its recent success, Watkins & Gunn Solicitors is ranked a leading firm in three separate areas of work in the 2013 edition of Legal 500, a leading guide to the best law practices in the UK.

The firm is rated for its Personal Injury, Divorce/Care and Criminal Law departments, as well as recommended in Private Tax, Trusts and Probate.

A number of the firm’s solicitors have also been recommended for their individual talents – Clive Thomas and Jonathan Wellington in Personal Injury law, Sarah Williams-Martin in Crime and Sophie Hughes, Kate Roberts and Lindsay Taylor in Family Law.

Clive Thomas, managing partner at Watkins & Gunn, said: “We were very pleased to have come third at the LFS Conveyancing Awards after a vigorous judging process. It is well deserved recognition for our dedicated Property Team who work extremely hard to provide an exceptional conveyancing service.

“We are also delighted to be featured so prominently in the 2013 edition of the Legal 500. To be recognised once again as one of the top law firms in the UK is hugely rewarding. Also the fact that individual lawyers have been recommended is a real testament to the expertise we have within the team.

“It has been a really successful month all round for the firm and we intend to continue in the same vein for the remainder of 2013.”

The firm was also a recent finalist in the ‘Business Services Business of the Year’ category of the South Wales Business Awards.
