Midlands and South West law firm Lodders, has been recognised for its high level of legal excellence, client service and expertise by the independent guide to the profession, Chambers UK Directory.
The new 2017 Guide, which recommends the very best law firms and lawyers across the UK, recommends Lodders for its real estate, private client, charity and agricultural work.
The new rankings come hot on the heels of Lodders' success in the latest edition of the Legal 500, which awarded the highest Tier 1 ranking to the firm's work in personal tax, trusts and probate, real estate and agriculture.
Chambers UK lists eight of Lodders' senior lawyers as leaders in their field - the firm's senior partner Martin Green for his private client work, Nick East and Paul Mourton, both partners in the firm's growing real estate practice, and Jane Senior for her work on all contentious issues involving land and property from landlord and tenant and boundary problems, to commercial and agricultural disputes.
Commercial partner Mark Lewis is singled out for his charity law expertise and legal and operational practices', Stephen Brignull for his specialism in estate and inheritance tax planning, Louise Igoe for her specialist work administrating estates, and Ian Flavell for his expert advice to landed estate owners and trustees on tax, trust and estate planning matters and advice on heritage properties.
The Guide has also awarded the firm's David Lodder its Senior Statesman accolade, in recognition of his pivotal role in the firm's success, and recognises him as excellent for his work on succession, tax and estate planning matters, partnership agreements and restructuring issues.
Lodders' senior partner Martin Green, says the recognition in the latest Chambers UK Directory and its rankings in this year's Legal 500 are a marker of the firm's sustained performance, comprehensive legal skill and exceptional service offering:
"Chambers is recognised for its integrity, independence and objectivity in researching and finding the very best lawyers in their fields, whilst The Legal 500 is one of the most respected ranking of lawyers worldwide. It is a fantastic achievement for Lodders and so many of our most experienced lawyers to be recognised highly in both the legal profession's directories, and is worthy recognition of our team's talent, exceptional work, client service and quality of advice provided by the firm and its individuals each and every day."
