International law firm DAC Beachcroft has recorded its best performance in the 2018 UK edition of leading legal directory Chambers & Partners with more of its practice areas and lawyers awarded top rankings than ever before.
Sixteen practices areas and 15 lawyers have been named in the elite 'Band 1' rank while the firm also has more practice areas ranked in the top two Bands than in any previous edition of Chambers' guide.
In total, DAC Beachcroft is ranked in 57 practice areas and with 95 Lawyer Rankings. In addition, the firm has more lawyers in the top two bands since November 2014's edition of the guide, which is testament to another successful year for the business.
Commenting on the results, DAC Beachcroft Senior Partner, Virginia Clegg, said: "On behalf of our business, I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our clients who took the time to engage with Chambers & Partners this year and to tell them about the work we do. It is extremely rewarding to know that these rankings are the direct result of their positive feedback."
Danielle Singer, David Knapp, John Bramhall, Kirsty Gomersal, Philip Harman, and Tom Walshaw were all named as 'Ranked Lawyers' while Andrea Proudlock and Holly Buckley were noted as 'Associates to Watch'.
Banking & Finance - South West (as Recognised Practitioner); Crime - Bristol and surrounds and Real Estate - North East all entered the rankings this year. Construction - North East; Employment - North East; Professional Negligence: Legal - London (Firms) and Real Estate – Yorkshire are all promoted in Chambers' rankings as are Catrin Davies, James Harrison, Jan Levinson, Kevin Hawthorn, Khurram Shamsee, Louise Bloomfield, Marcus Campbell and Nicola Fairbairn.
Virginia added: "I am delighted that, once again, Chambers has recognised the hard work and talent among our teams and individuals by awarding more of our practice areas and lawyers with their very top rank. Congratulations to all of our colleagues who have gained or retained their rankings this year."
