A renowned independent legal survey has recommended a Coventry law firm in more categories than any other practice in the city.
Band Hatton, based at Station Square in Coventry, has been named as one of the leading and most diverse firms in the West Midlands after it was listed in eight categories by The Legal 500 – a definitive guide to the capabilities of law firms across the UK.
The Legal 500 lists the top law firms in the UK and it was a record performance for Band Hatton, which employs over 30 people, featured in more categories than any other law firm in Coventry. The achievement underlines Band Hatton’s reputation as one of the leading and most reliable legal practices in the region having consistently been named in five or more categories in recent years.
This time around the company made appearances in the corporate and commercial, commercial litigation, debt recovery, charities, family, education and commercial property as well as personal tax, trusts and probate. It is also the only Coventry firm to feature in the charities, personal tax, trusts and probate, education and commercial property sections.
Dawn Mobbs, partner at Band Hatton, was also singled out for praise by The Legal 500 which, when describing the firm’s work in Family field, said: “She is a collaborative lawyer who is particularly experienced in advising on financial relief on the breakdown of a relationship.”
Mark Moseley, practice director at Band Hatton, said the listings confirmed the organisation’s position as one of the most diverse law firms in the region – diversity which stems from knowledge built up since the company was established over 110 years ago in 1896.
“We are delighted with the outcome of the latest Legal 500 survey which has yielded the best results in our history,” he said. “It is a fantastic achievement for us to gain this sort of recognition from what many consider to be the bible of the legal profession.
“To be named across such a broad range of categories underlines the fact that we are able to provide a diverse and high quality service to our clients.
“We have a proud reputation of delivering excellent standards of service in everything we do and we will be aiming to build on this in the future.”
