The 2013 edition of Chambers UK (the independently researched guide to the UK legal profession) was published today and once again selects Stevens & Bolton LLP as a regional heavyweight, being recommended in 16 practice areas, with top tier ranking in 12 of these.
The guide describes the firm thus: "… considered to be one of the "pre-eminent firms" in the region.…”; “….”punches well above its weight" and has "all the corporate feel of a major City law firm……”. “….having the "quality of a London firm at a reasonable price, and they have the breadth and depth to deliver."
The guide also recommends 27 lawyers at the firm as ‘leaders in their field’.
Managing Partner, Ken Woffenden, commented:
“This is an outstanding achievement which recognises the strong reputation the firm has in the UK legal market. In the current economic climate people are looking for high quality legal advice, at value for money rates. We are delighted that Chambers UK has endorsed this firm as offering exactly that.”
Earlier in the year the other leading legal directory The Legal 500, recommended the firm in a wide range of practice areas, bringing the total number of practice areas recommended by Chambers UK and/or The Legal 500 to 24.
This follows a very successful year to date, with the firm being shortlisted in the National/Regional Law Firm of the Year category at both the Legal Business Awards in February and at the forthcoming British Legal Awards at the end of November.
