Excellent ratings in Legal 500 2017

news / 18 October 2017

The 2017 edition of The Legal 500 – an independent review of law firms – has just been published and we have once again secured excellent ratings.

The firm is described as “a ‘highly skilled and commercially aware firm’ that comes ‘highly recommended’ by clients.”

We have received 7 ‘top-tier’ recommendations, 12 further recommendations, has 5 lawyers recommended in the elite national ‘leading lawyers’ list.  And, in addition to these well-known names, benefits from a raft of ‘rising stars’ who also receive impressive reviews.

The review praises our delivery of advice to organisations on corporate and commercial, employment, commercial property, commercial and property litigation, employment, health and safety and construction issues.  The firm’s private client lawyers are reported to be: a ‘formidable team’, ‘consistently excellent, very efficient, and clear and concise in its advice’.

Specilaist advice to the education, media and food sectors is also highlighted.

Technical expertise is a ‘given’ when working with the majority of law firms; but here we give additional focus on delivering excellent client experience to set it apart.  Lawyers are encouraged to build strong client relationships and are given the time to do so.  It’s an investment appreciated by clients.  It builds strong client advocates – a key factor in growing market share.

Robert Dillarstone, Managing Partner, explains: ‘Our culture delivers fantastic service for our clients.  We take an open approach to running our business.  We engage everyone in our future and share our strategic aims.  Everyone knows what we are looking to achieve and feels part of the plan to achieve it.  Whilst it sounds very straightforward, feedback from those joining Greenwoods suggests it’s a refreshing approach.  It’s important to me that this is one of the many things that makes us different.

To receive such excellent client feedback makes it all worthwhile.  It fires us all on to deliver even more. We have a great team here and I’m immensely proud of everyone.’

‘The Legal 500’ reviews also highlight the quality, complexity and high-profile nature of advice sought from our teams – a reflection of the calibre of the firm’s client base across the region.
