Raworths Solicitors has maintained its impressive rankings in two of the law industry’s most highly acclaimed directories, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
The firm, which offers a range of specialisms, received high praise from these important publications across all its departments spanning both private and commercial law.
Zoe Robinson, managing partner at the firm, which has been based in Harrogate for over 130 years said: “This is a tremendous achievement for everyone at Raworths. Both national guides cement the firm’s reputation for excellence and emphasise a consistently high level of expertise across all our departments.
“Our breadth of service is something that is particularly important to us – being able to provide a complete offering to our clients is in part why we develop such long lasting and loyal relationships.”
The rankings establish the firm’s reputation as a serious contender amongst the region’s best. Raworths is recognised by Legal 500 in seven areas of law: corporate & commercial, commercial litigation, commercial property, property litigation, family, agriculture and estates, personal tax, trusts and probate.
Practice area commentary praised Raworths as; ‘one of the key firms in Harrogate’ who ‘consistently demonstrates exceptional professionalism throughout any matter it works on with an ability to fully understand what the client wants and execute that extremely well’.
Chambers and Partners which carries out research with clients and competitors to establish its recommendations, has included six of Raworths areas of practice, one of the largest of any Harrogate based law firm.
The guide highlights the exceptional delivery of service at Raworths in agriculture & rural affairs, family/matrimonial, corporate/M&A (SME/OMB), employment, litigation and real estate. This is in addition to the inclusion of the Trust Wills and Estates team in the Chambers High Net Worth Guide which is released in July.
One source described the team as “very professional,” adding: “You get a strong impression it runs throughout the whole team from reception staff to partners.” Whilst one client said; ‘They act as a business partner and not an engaged service provider’ and another praised an ability to ‘look for solutions, rather than just providing legal advice’.
