National law firm Bevan Brittan has been named among the UK’s best law firms for the fifth consecutive year by The Times.
The Times Best Law Firms 2023 report commends the firm in two practice areas – Administrative & Public Law and Clinical Negligence.
Bevan Brittan’s public and administrative law expertise has received repeated recognition over the past 12 months, including a UK-wide Band 1 ranking in the Chambers UK 2023 directory. Partner Melanie Carter, who joined the firm earlier this year, was Spotlighted for Public Inquiries by Chambers and named in the Legal 500 Hall of Fame. Virginia Cooper, Olivia Carter, Amy Tschobotko and Jason Tandy have all also been recognised individually in Chambers UK and Legal 500 for their public and administrative law work.
The firm was recently appointed to the Crown Commercial Services’ Central Government Legal Services panel, which includes providing Administrative and Public Law legal advice under the full service provision lot.
Bevan Brittan’s Clinical Negligence team provides clinical defence legal advice across the NHS and to independent health and social care providers and their insurers.
The team was ranked UK-wide Band 1 by Chambers, while Legal 500 gave it top-tier status in both the South West and West Midlands. Partners Joanne Easterbrook and Adrian Dagnall were named in the latter’s Hall of Fame, while Joanna Lloyd and Tim Hodgetts were listed as ‘Leading Individuals’. Legal 500 added that Dan Morris is a Next Generation Partner, while Penelope Radcliffe is a Rising Star. Julie Charlton was also described as “an outstanding partner, robust but pragmatic”.
Such recognition also follows a number of promotions over the last two years, with Susan Trigg becoming Partner and Lauren Halliday, Raj Kang, Helen Troman and Tania Kahlon moving to Senior Associate level.
Bevan Brittan’s Managing Partner Duncan Weir said: “We are delighted to be named as a Times Best Law Firm for a fifth consecutive year. Such recognition is testament to the knowledge and expertise we have within the firm.
“Both Administrative & Public Law and Clinical Negligence have had impressive years and provided first-class support to their clients, so their listings are a welcome acknowledgement. As ever, we are focused on further developing our offering and determined to continue delivering the best possible advice to our clients.”
This latest recognition comes after the firm announced its ninth consecutive year of growth, exceeding £60 million in revenue for the first time.
