Bondholder law firm Geldards has achieved top rankings in both The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners legal directories for 2016.
Top tier rankings are up by 11% year-on-year, with 28% of Geldards' submissions recording a rise up the Legal 500 tables. In addition to this, 17 partners of the firm are included in the elite 'leading individuals' list.
The release of Chambers & Partners 2016 has also given high profile recognition to a record number of 34 of Geldards lawyers including Partners David Watson, Mark Hacking, Heather Dixon and Debra Martin.
Recognised in 19 practice areas nationwide the firm has received high praise across the board with one client stating: 'they understand what our real needs are, and they fight for those needs.'
One of the more high profile improvements was achieved by Geldards' Commercial Dispute Resolution Team led by 'notable practitioners' Nino Simone and Jonathan Butler. The practice was ranked in the higher 'Midlands' regional' category, as opposed to 'Derby and Surrounds', for the first time.
Commenting on the inclusion Jonathan Butler said: 'We're delighted with this year's rankings which are a testimony to the calibre of our team and the high confidence our valued clients continue to place in us.'
Chairman of Geldards David Williams said: 'The independent Chambers and Partners rankings demonstrate our commitment to delivering the best quality legal services and providing our clients with the reassurance that they are being advised by some of the leading experts in their field.'
