Harrogate and Leeds based Berwins has been recognised in the latest edition of legal directory Legal500 as one of Yorkshire’s leading law firms.
The directory, which is based on independent research, recommends the services which the firm offers to both individuals and businesses.
Berwins’ specialist family law team receives particular praise. The only unit in the area to receive mentions for all its lawyers, it is identified as a ‘standout practice in Harrogate’ which ‘shines through for its quality and depth’ of services. It sits alongside the Life team, which is noted for work with high net worth individuals and estates,’ particularly by key lawyers Gareth Marland and Julie Jewers.
The firm’s burgeoning commercial team also receives extensive coverage, with client’s praising ‘excellent and comprehensive service that utilises its insight and experience and responds in an effective and proactive manner’.
Reflecting on the findings, Senior Partner Paul Berwin – who himself is praised for his ‘wealth of experience' in commercial matters – said “As a firm, we are delighted to have received such a ringing endorsement for our legal services in this well-respected industry guide.”
“One of the most pleasing points to me personally is the fact that the guide recognises Berwins as a firm known for ‘putting the client at the centre of everything that they do'. Care for our clients was a founding principle of the firm and something which, as well as offering outstanding legal solutions, is something we put a great deal of emphasis on. To have this validated in this prestigious publication is something which we are particularly proud of.”
Legal 500 is an independently compiled directory which is designed to help those seeking legal services make informed choices. The result of an extensive research process, the guide features firms from across the UK and is separated by areas of legal specialism.
