The Legal 500 is the pre-eminent guide to law firms and solicitors in the UK and has over four million users visiting its website every year. Inclusion in the prestigious guide is based on detailed analysis of thousands of interviews carried out by independent legal researchers. In the latest 2022 edition of the publication Slee Blackwell has again been identified as a leading firm.
The Legal 500 2022 highlights the achievements of our ‘professional and compassionate‘ personal injury team which focuses on high-value, complex claims, and cases involving the Animals Act, sexual abuse, fatal accidents and workplace injuries.
Partner Elizabeth Duncan has been singled out for particular praise and has received the honour of being listed as a ‘Leading Individual’, one of only three in the entire region. The guide refers to Elizabeth as ‘outstanding‘. James McNally, recently dubbed ‘The dog bite solicitor’ by a national newspaper, is also mentioned
In addition The Legal 500 has recommended our clinical negligence department, noting our specialist work in cases relating to negligently performed cosmetic surgery. The roles played by partner Oliver Thorne and senior solicitors Andrew Wood and Caroline Webber Brown are highlighted.
We are particularly proud of the feedback the publication received about the quality of our work, including the following two testimonials:
‘I have had an excellent experience with Slee Blackwell. They are quick to respond to emails and have always returned my calls within a day or two.‘
‘Oliver Thorne has been kind, caring and empathetic whilst always remaining professional. He has always been very approachable and never made me feel like I am asking a silly question.’
Slee Blackwell’s managing partner Nick Arthur expressed his delight with firm’s achievement, commenting that it was a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff.
