Bevan Brittan has been named one of the best law firms in the UK for a sixth consecutive year by national newspaper The Times.
The Times Best Law Firms 2024 report has commended the firm in three different areas. It has been recognised for its Administrative & Public Law and Landlord & Tenant expertise, while it also received acclaim for its Clinical Negligence work.
The firm’s Administrative & Public Law practice was ranked Band 1 UK-wide by the Chambers UK Guide 2024. Partner Melanie Carter received a Band 1 ranking and is listed in The Legal 500 2024 Hall of Fame too.
The firm’s Landlord & Tenant skills were also reflected in recent directory rankings. It was ranked top tier for Social Housing in two regions by both Chambers and The Legal 500. Partners Richard Stirk, Julie Cowan-Clark and Louise Leaver were ranked Band 1 by Chambers, while the latter was in The Legal 500’s Hall of Fame. Ian Caplan (Commercial Property: Development), Jonathan Turner, Helen Andrews and Louise Robling (all Construction) were also named Leading Individuals by The Legal 500, alongside Steve Eccles and James Teagle (both Property Litigation).
Bevan Brittan provides clinical defence legal advice to both the NHS and independent health and social care organisations. It was ranked top tier in the South West for both Personal Injury: Defendant and Clinical Negligence: Defendant by The Legal 500, while it was in the highest bracket for the latter in the West Midlands as well. London-based Partner Joanne Easterbrook was also listed in The Legal 500’s Hall of Fame and ranked Band 1 by Chambers.
Duncan Weir, Managing Partner at Bevan Brittan, said: “It is a fantastic achievement to be recognised by The Times for the sixth year in a row. This reflects how we have consistently provided high quality support to our clients through the years, both in our commended areas and across a range of other markets.
“While it is welcome to see our expertise in three areas acknowledged, we are proud of the talent that we have throughout the entire firm. This will be crucial as we continue to push forward with our plans for growth.”
Bevan Brittan achieved its tenth consecutive year of growth in 2022/23, with its revenue reaching £67.3 million.
