Furley Page’s private client team is highly recommended for its “incisive and straightforward advice” with four lawyers personally acknowledged within the guide.

Commercial property specialist and Partner Liz Brady is recognised for her “good in-depth knowledge of property law”, while property litigation expert Jeremy Ferris is singled-out for his “considerable experience and expertise”, “high quality advice” and “clear, concise manner.”

Meanwhile, the firm’s “very competent and efficient” charities and not-for-profit team is highlighted for its “clear advice, attentive service and excellent value for money”, with Partner Aaron Spencer praised for dealing “quickly and efficiently with all issues.”

The personal injury team, including Partner and head of team, Neille Ryan, is recognised for its excellent “level of communication, attention to details, legal knowledge and client care.”

Peter Hawkes, Senior Partner at Furley Page, said: “It is a remarkable achievement to see a record number of our talented lawyers earning national recognition for their expertise and dedicated approach to providing exceptional client service.
