Recognition reflects ‘rapid progress adapting to COVID-19’

22 Oct 2020

Leading south east law firm DMH Stallard has received a ‘merited and thorough endorsement’ from Chambers, the leading authority for ranking the most outstanding law firms and lawyers throughout the world.

With five offices in Crawley, Guildford, London, Brighton and Horsham, the firm has eight teams in Band 1 and 15 ranked overall.  Individually, six partners have received a Band 1 with 24 ranked in total.

Richard Pollins, Managing Partner at DMH Stallard, said:

“The last eight months have been extraordinary.  No amount of emergency planning could fully equip any organisation for the challenges the pandemic has created.  However, I do think these exceptional outcomes for the firm reflect our rapid progress adapting to Covid-19, including our overriding determination to keep all our clients and colleagues safe.”

Banking & Finance, Clinical Negligence, Corporate, Employment, Environment, Family, Intellectual Property and Planning are the teams in Band 1, while Heidi Copland, Gwen Godfrey, Jonathan Grant, Helen Mead, Abigail Owen and Mark Rennie received the Band 1 ranking.

Richard added:

“We are delighted that Elina Ong in our Banking & Finance team has been highlighted by Chambers as ‘one to watch’ and Mark Rennie, partner in our family department, has achieved a Band 1 ranking for the first time. 

“Every one of my colleagues deserves great credit for the way they have responded since the first lockdown in March.  I suspect there will be equally testing times ahead, but I know we will overcome them and continue to achieve the success that our clients expect.”
