Shoosmiths impresses in Legal 500 and Chambers rankings

The breadth and depth of legal services offered by national law firm Shoosmiths has been recognised by the influential legal directories, The Legal 500 (United Kingdom) and Chambers and Partners (Chambers UK).

In The Legal 500, Shoosmiths has been recommended as a top tier firm across an impressive 29 practice areas - ranging from real estate to corporate and commercial and private client - while it has also been recommended in a further 75 rankings across the directory.

In Chambers UK, the firm was ranked in a total of 65 areas, 13 practice areas ranked in band one including real estate, private client and employment. In addition, nine practice areas were named as 'national leaders'.

Shoosmiths chairman Peter Duff said the results reinforced Shoosmiths' ability to offer world-class legal services across a whole host of practice areas.

"These rankings provide further proof that Shoosmiths is realising its ambition to be the leading national law firm in the UK," he added. "It shows that we are delivering on client experience, with a full-service offering and above all, dedicated, talented teams that are constantly going above and beyond."

Its thorough research of all law firms means it is trusted and used by fellow legal practitioners such as General Counsel (GC) of many of the top FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies, journalists, students and the wider business community.
