William Grace is pleased to report that it has secured rankings for two of its key practice areas in the Legal 500, as well as recommendations for both of its founding partners, Carolyn Burbridge and Alastair Shaw. 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. Only those firms and lawyers that such analysis reveals to be recommended get a mention in the guide. William Grace is particularly proud to have received this accolade in only its second year and hot on the heels of being nominated for a Law Society Excellence award in year one.
The partners are very grateful to their clients and peers who contributed to the Legal 500’s research and analysis. Quotes referencing the firm’s quality and professionalism and identifying that the team is “easy and straightforward to deal with” show that we have the correct ethos and that the firm is meeting its stated aims. The whole team is looking forward to continuing to do so in the years to come.
