Slee Blackwell have been included in a list of the best solicitors in Devon and Somerset by the independent legal guide, The Legal 500
The Legal 500, which is published every year, is a leading guide to the best solicitors in the UK. It prides itself on being totally independent and impartial.
Slee Blackwell are proud to have been included within the publication for many years in succession.
Managing partner, Nick Arthur says:
“Its a fantastic achievement. We know ourselves that we are among the best solicitors in Devon and Somerset, but when an independent publication like The Legal 500 confirms that we are up with the best in the entire south west region then that is extremely gratifying. We have some great teams of lawyers who are committed to providing the very best service, with an emphasis on practical, cost-effective legal advice.”
The Legal 500 rankings are based on feedback from 300,000 professionals and thousands of interviews, all of which are independently assessed by the publication’s researchers.
For more than 30 years The Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world. Its comprehensive research programme is revised and updated every year, allowing it to assess the strengths of law firms in over 150 jurisdictions.
The only way a law firm can get into The Legal 500 ranking tables and commentary is on merit. If their researchers do not think a firm of solicitors is one of the best then they will not be included. It is not possible for a firm of solicitors to buy its way into the editorial.
Every firm of solicitors that is ranked in The Legal 500 UK Solicitors guide is ‘recommended’. One of the service areas that Slee Blackwell is ranked for is clinical negligence. Partner and head of our clinical negligence team, Oliver Thorne, commented:
“It’s an honour to be included as a recommended firm and one of the best in the south west. When clients are shopping around for legal services they want to be reassured they are going to the best solicitors. The Legal 500’s seal of approval therefore means a great deal to us.”
