Kent law firm Furley Page is celebrating an outstanding set of results in the annual rankings published by The Legal 500 UK Awards 2014, a top independent national guide to excellence in the legal sector.
Furley Page is recommended in 14 practice areas, compared to 13 a year ago. This is the first time that the firm has been recognised for its work in the field of professional negligence.
Outstanding individual performances over the past year are also highlighted, with solicitor Natasha Biggs joining Susan Jennings and Andrew Masters as one of the three individuals at Furley Page recommended by The Legal 500.
Furley Page is also recommended in the practice areas of corporate and commercial, commercial litigation, property litigation, debt recovery, commercial property and construction, with two teams singled out for particular praise – employment, and agriculture and estates.
Also highly rated are the private client teams of personal injury, charities and not-for-profit, private client (personal tax, trust and probate), family and finally education, which was recommended by The Legal 500 even though Furley Page did not enter a submission.
Several solicitors are singled out for praise. The Legal 500 says head of corporate, Susan Jennings, is “personable” and “a pleasure to work with”. Head of employment Andrew Masters is said to have “a great track record” while his team is “excellent in all respects” and has growing expertise in the education sector.
Commenting on rankings, senior partner Peter Hawkes said: “To have excelled in 14 practice areas represents an outstanding result which I believe is testament to Furley Page’s commitment to maintaining and developing the strength of our teams.
“I am particularly pleased to see that our Debt and Insolvency Team is earning national recognition in this way. We constantly strive to provide clients with the highest quality service and we’re proud for this to be recognised by this highly-respected guide.”
