Firms highly ranked in leading UK law guide

Andrew Jackson and Rollits have been highly ranked in Chambers, the leading clients’ guide to the UK’s law firms.
Andrew Jackson has achieved 24 recommendations for client work and 13 of the firm’s lawyers have been singled out as being ‘leaders in their field’ of expertise, which includes national recognition for shipping and product liability work.

The guide praises Andrew’s Jackson’s ‘very responsive’ family and private client teams, which remain top-ranked in the guide. Several other departments are also highly commended, with client comments such as ‘They are head and shoulders above the others when they need to deal with the work in a timely manner’ (banking law) and ‘They give a warmth out that feels as though you are contacting a real friend who will help you when you need it most’ (employment law).

Mark Pearson-Kendall, managing partner, said: “These results really matter to our team, as they provide us with invaluable feedback that we are consistently delivering what our clients need. “Chambers provides us with a benchmark of quality against which to measure how we’re performing, so to receive this high level of recognition is great news across the entire firm”.

“It’s been another successful year for Andrew Jackson and I’m very proud to see we are again a top-ranked law firm in the Yorkshire & Humber region.”

Rollits has been recommended as a leading Yorkshire law firm across several practice areas in the Chambers guide.

The firm’s legal expertise, strength in depth, sector experience and client service have been highlighted in the directory for its work in corporate mergers and acquisitions, litigation, employment, real estate; banking and finance, private client and agriculture and rural affairs. Furthermore, Rollits is one of only seven firms in the North East and Yorkshire to be recommended for social housing work.
In addition to the eight areas of recommendation for the legal teams, nine of Rollits’ Partners are singled out for praise as ‘leaders in their field’.
George Coyle (very client-focused and very good at solving problems.) and Ralph Gilbert (very good, practical and pragmatic), Steve Trynka (intelligent, diligent and available when required), Richard Field (offers balanced and sound advice), Nasim Sharf (experienced and enthusiastic), (very talented property lawyer, a very nice chap and a pleasure to work with), Donna Ingleby (an excellent resource), Ed Jenneson (extremely approachable) and John Lane who heads the firm’s private capital department all receive plaudits in the publication.

Ralph Gilbert, managing partner, says: “As we celebrate our 175th year in business we are really pleased with our strong performance as these rankings emphasise our continued delivery of legal knowledge combined with excellent client service. ”The efforts of the wider Rollits team. Their hard work and dedication throughout the past year is very much valued by the partnership.”
