Chambers and Partners, one of the UK’s leading legal directories, has once again recognised Lanyon Bowdler as a top ranking firm in the midlands.

The firm, which has offices across Shropshire, has been named as Band 1 level firm in the midlands for family law, personal injury and clinical negligence, and has also been ranked in Band 2 for agriculture and rural affairs.

Top ranked lawyers include partner and head of the personal injury team, Neil Lorimer, a specialist in brain injuries, head of clinical negligence, Kay Kelly, who is also a partner with the firm, and team colleague and partner Lucy Small. Associate Emma Broomfield is ranked as an ‘associate to watch’.

Chambers and Partners quotes the clinical negligence team as being known as a “broad practice with particular prominence in brain and spinal injury cases. Backed by an in-house medical team comprising a GP and two nurses”.

The family team are praised for their “expertise across a broad range of family law issues including separation agreements, financial provision on divorce and family mediation”. They are also particularly noted for their ability to “represent farming clients with respect to complex financial issues”.

The directory highlights excellent client service and states the personal injury team as being “lauded for its ability to handle a wide spectrum of personal injury claims, including those involving RTAs, brain and spinal injuries, chronic pain disorders and accidents abroad. The team “receives high praise for sensitive and empathetic client service”.

Recognised at Band 2 for the first year, the directory says the agricultural team “handles a broad spread of work across agricultural property, dispute resolution and private client matters and frequently advises members of the National Farming Union”.

Managing partner, David Battisby, said: “We take pride in ensuring we have the best lawyers with genuine specialisms and Chambers and Partners directory is an excellent benchmark to ensure we are delivering what we promise. Kay Kelly and Neil Lorimer are rightly recognised as ‘top ranked lawyers’, and it is excellent to see them joined by Lucy Small and to see Emma Broomfield identified as an ‘associate to watch’.

“For the family, personal injury and clinical negligence departments to be placed at the highest level for the midlands shows there are highly experienced, talented lawyers away from the major cities. As our offices are in a very rural part of the country, with a thriving agricultural industry, I am particularly pleased to see our agricultural team recognised this year.”

Chambers and Partners have been ranking the best law firms and lawyers since 1990. Their results are based on extensive research, carried out by independent researchers and includes interviews with clients of the firm and professional contacts such as barristers and experts.
