Leading legal services provider, Brethertons, is celebrating after being named as one of the top law firms in the central region by leading industry publication, The Legal 500 Clients Guide to the UK Legal Profession.

Brethertons is, once again, ranked as a top tier firm for Family law in the West Midlands, with Partner Linda Jones being listed as a

‘recommended lawyer’ for her expertise in “complex financial disputes involving various types of assets.”

The firm’s Employment team has moved up one tier in the West Midlands and head of practice, David Hodge, is “highly recommended by clients [for his] specialisms [which] include tribunal representation, management exits, TUPE compliance and disciplinary actions.”

Partner Simon Craddock has been listed in the Elite Leading Lawyers list for the seventh time - The Legal 500 guide to outstanding lawyers nationwide – for his work in the highly specialist field of international child abduction.

In total, 19 of the firm’s legal advisors have been recommended, including solicitors Colin Witherall and Sally Clark who have all been ranked for the first time by the Guide.

Brethertons’ CEO Shaun Jardine, himself recommended as a specialist in Litigation, said: “The Legal 500 is an independent publication which reflects the state of the legal industry today. Law firms are peer reviewed and recommended and therefore provide clients with an unbiased overview of the market. It’s really helpful for clients to see how we are benchmarked against competitors and take an informed decision on which solicitor to use.”
