Hamlins makes its mark in Chambers and Partners 2018
Hamlins has once again been recognised for the quality of its work and client service by Chambers and Partners, one of the two leading legal services directories. The commercial real estate and reputation management teams, as well as 8 of our individual lawyers have been ranked.
To secure strong recommendations and listings in the directory Hamlins’ clients had to provide independent testimonials about the quality and type of advice given by the firm.
The firm was ranked for Real Estate: mainly mid-market where it was noted for ‘its capable provision of a diverse range of real estate services. The depth of services provided by the 19 strong Hamlins team (including 10 partners) includes commercial real estate, property finance and property litigation.’ The firm offers “strong capability in the leisure sector and in transactions involving multi-let properties.”
A real estate client commented “They are our preferred law firm because they are always available and happy to assist with any type of query. They will go above and beyond for us”
Within Defamation and Reputation Management the firm was noted for its powerful litigation practice at the forefront of much of the activity concerning the phone hacking prosecutions. The team was also recognised for offering claimants and defendants expertise in a wide variety of privacy, defamation and harassment matters.
“They’re very good. They’re extremely knowledgeable, helpful and they get back to you very quickly” claimed one source.
The Chambers and Partners directory rankings follow shortly after the Legal 500 listings which ranked Hamlins in 14 practice areas and recognised 17 of our lawyers.
Individual lawyers throughout the firm were noted for their expertise as follows:
Real Estate Finance: Charles Bezzant
Real Estate Litigation: Kate Andrews
Corporate/ M&A:Mid-Market: Daniel Bellau
