The inaugural list has been compiled based on the opinions of more than 20,000 solicitors in England and Wales and the feedback from many hundreds of clients who were asked to recommend the best law firms in any of 31 categories, covering business, public and private client services.

According to The Times, the list is a valuable reference point for the profession and others seeking advice on who other lawyers believe to be leaders in the field.
Don Bird, the firm’s senior partner, commented: “Considering the high number of law firms that were eligible, to be voted amongst the best 200 of them is quite an achievement for any firm; we are naturally very pleased and proud to have our work recognised by our peers and clients, and thank them for taking the time to vote for us.”
