Editors and researchers from The Legal 500 praised the firm for providing ‘clear and practical advice’ on Employment law matters, while the Family Team was applauded for being ‘very responsive’ .
Newly recommended Paul Formby, who heads up the firm’s Insolvency & Corporate Recovery Team, was noted as having ‘outstanding technical knowledge and experience beyond his years’.
Jeremy said: “We are absolutely delighted with this year’s Legal 500 rankings. SAS Daniels is recognised as a major player in the legal market and I am personally delighted to be ranked as a tier one specialist alongside other significant names in the North West region.
