“To have so many practices and lawyers ranked and to have our crime practice placed in Band 1 for the first time is fantastic.  These results depend so much on the impartial feedback from our clients, so it’s the work we do for them every day and the advice that we impart that is being recognised here whether that’s from a business or individual perspective. We look forward to building and maintaining those client relationships in 2021.”
