Two Harrogate Law businesses have topped North Yorkshire’s family law league table in the latest national legal rankings, the Legal 500.
Harrogate Family Law and Stowe Family Law have come out top for North Yorkshire law firm for its expertise in family law.
Founder Andrew Meehan and partner Ellie Foster are also the only Harrogate-based family lawyers to have been singled out for individual recommendation in the guide.
Andrew Meehan said he was delighted that the expertise and empathetic approach of the Harrogate Family Law team had been recognised.
Andrew Meehan said: This ranking proves that we are punching above our weight and have gained a reputation that puts us on an even footing with many of Yorkshire’s biggest law firms.
We have always strived to be a niche practice with high standards of client care and technical legal ability.
This listing by the Legal 500 acknowledges the fact that we have successfully achieved that goal and that our experts are amongst the best in Yorkshire.
Three Stowe Family Law solicitors have also been recognised by the Legal 500 in this year’s annual ranking of private client family lawyers.
Harrogate-based, Senior Partner, Marilyn Stowe received high praise. She was billed as a “first-class” solicitor for family matters.
Managing Partner in its Leeds office, Julian Hawkhead, was commended for his “good appreciation of the benefits of mediation and negotiation”.
Kate Rayner, a solicitor from the firm’s Wilmslow office, was also recommended as a top family lawyer.
The Legal 500 analyses and assesses law firms around the world. They rank firms and lawyers from 106 different constituencies and different practise areas. Its rankings are based on several criteria, including feedback from 250,000 clients, interviews with legal experts and additional research of the legal market.
David Milburn, Managing Partner of Stowe Family Law’s Harrogate office said: It is an honour to have our solicitors recognised for their talent, hard work and dedication.
