William Grace is again pleased to see that it has maintained its rankings in the Legal 500 this year. The Legal 500 is one of the leading guides to law firms and its rankings reflect detailed analysis of law firm submissions and thousands of interviews with senior in-house and private practice lawyers. The firm is very grateful to its clients and peers who contributed to this analysis and is delighted that this has led to two of its key practice areas being ranked as well as recommendations for both founding partners, Carolyn Burbridge and Alastair Shaw.
The success of William Grace has now been recognised in each of the three years of its existence with the Legal 500 recommendations following an earlier nomination for a Law Society Excellence award. Recent high quality additions to the team mean the firm has strengthened its offering further and is looking forward to the coming year.
