North West law firm, SAS Daniels LLP, has once again been recognised in national legal guide Chambers UK 2017.
This year’s Chambers UK rankings saw four legal specialists at SAS Daniels achieve recognition; Andrew Clark (Real Estate), Jonathan Whittaker (Employment), Paul Formby (Restructuring & Insolvency) and a new entry for Jeremy Orrell (Corporate M&A).
Paul Formby, whose ranking increased from band 3 to 2, is recognised as a ‘rising star’ and a ‘good all round insolvency lawyer’. While newly listed Jeremy Orrell, head of Corporate at the firm, is singled out for his ‘responsiveness and excellent communication’.
Rankings in Chambers UK are key to the firm’s credentials, recognising the firm’s specialist teams, based solely on merit, and reinforcing its position as ‘No ordinary law firm’.
The Chambers Guide ranks both lawyers and law firms based on the research of 150 full time editors and researchers and reflects work delivered between January and December 2015.
The firm is listed in Chambers UK for Corporate Law and Employment Law in the North West and Family & Matrimonial and Private Client in Manchester and surrounds.
Describing the firm’s Private Client team Chambers UK said ‘they really had the personal touch and were looking out for client’s best interests’ while the Employment team are ‘efficient, effective and pleasant in what they do so clients feel confident working with them.’
In September this year SAS Daniels was also recognised as a ‘Top Tier firm’ for Corporate & Commercial law in another national legal guide, The Legal 500, with Jeremy Orrell being singled out as a ‘Leading Individual.’
Jonathan Whittaker, Senior Partner at SAS Daniels, commented: “We’re thrilled to have been recognised once again in both prestigious legal guides, as we have been for many years now. It means we are achieving recognition for our expertise across the disciplines in which we specialise.
“Our rankings are testament to the firm’s mission and values which support a compelling strapline ‘No ordinary law firm’. This runs through our very core and is embraced by our expert teams to ensure a memorable and refreshing client experience. The approach has been integral to SAS Daniels’ success, underpinned by strategic growth and record annual billings.”
With a growing team of over 80 legal advisors, including 20 partners, SAS Daniels operates out of offices in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton.
