Accolades for DMH Stallard in global legal guides

28 Nov 2018

The two top legal guides in the world have bestowed numerous honours on south east law firm DMH Stallard.

Legal 500 and Chambers publish annual findings that identify the best areas of practice within law firms and the stand-out performing partners.

In both renowned guides DMH Stallard and their senior partners are singled out for the highest praise.

Top ranked practice areas include banking and finance, corporate, employment, environment, family, intellectual property, IT and Telecoms, planning, private client and property litigation.

Highlights in the guides include a “superior level of service in all aspects” for employment; “consistently excellent legal work and support” for environment; “a leader in its field” for planning; “leading player in the south east” for property litigation and “excellent responsiveness” for IT & Telecoms.

Chambers awarded no less than five partners their tier one status, including Robert Knight (private client), Gwen Godfrey (banking and finance), Heidi Copeland (environment and planning), Jonathan Grant (corporate) and Abigail Owen (corporate).

A series of senior lawyers were also cited as ‘ones to watch’, namely Phil Vallon, Chloe Karamian, Kristine Ng and Jonathan Crook. 

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner of DMH Stallard and described by Chambers as an ‘eminent practitioner’, said:

“These accreditations from two such distinguished benchmarking authorities reflect the exceptional work of our teams across Sussex and Surrey, and in London. It is through our focus on achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients and their success that we have been recognised in this way.”

A Top 100 law firm in the UK, DMH Stallard has offices in Brighton, Gatwick, Guildford, Horsham and London.
