Lester Aldridge excels in Chambers Guide for Leading Lawyers
The independent legal directory recognises the outstanding contributions of sixteen of the firm's lawyers and ten of its practice areas, further highlighting its commitment to excellence in the legal field.
Among the distinguished lawyers featured in the Chambers UK 2024 guide are partners Tom Alder, Kevin Barnett, Mark Benham, Grant Esterhuizen, David Fanchi, Laura Guntrip, Linda Jacques, Russell Kelly, and Roger Woolley. Notably, commercial litigation expert Chris Evans earned a top tier ranking for Professional Negligence, along with insolvency partner Nick Keitley, reinforcing Lester Aldridge's expertise in these critical practice areas. Within the Personal Injury & Medical Negligence team, partners David Healy and Liz Oaten have been newly ranked.
Managing Partner Matthew Barrow, who specialises in Real Estate, has again been recognised by Chambers as an 'Eminent Practitioner.' Meanwhile, Rosemary Sharp, a partner in the family team, along with Rebecca Walker for Restructuring/Insolvency, have been ranked as “up and coming” notable practitioners.
The firm has two new practice area rankings for Real Estate Litigation and Personal Injury: Mainly Claimant. This is in addition to the firm's eight practice areas that retained their rankings in the guide: Corporate/M&A, Employment, Family/Matrimonial, Healthcare, Litigation, Real Estate, Restructuring/Insolvency, and Shipping.
Matthew Barrow expressed his pride in the firm's recognition, stating, "Chambers has once again acknowledged our breadth of skills and experience by recommending LA in multiple practice areas. The directory's extensive client interviews and peer discussions underscore our exceptional client service and leadership in various areas of legal expertise."
Chambers & Partners' rigorous independent research, conducted by 200 researchers across 200 jurisdictions, encompasses nearly 6,000 rankings tables. The annual guide compiles thousands of client responses, primarily through in-depth interviews, to determine its rankings.
