Leading licensing law firm, Poppleston Allen, grabbed the headlines again, as announcements from the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners legal directories reaffirmed their standing as the number one licensing law firm in England and Wales.
The directories, which are the most comprehensive worldwide guide to law firms and solicitors, base their results on a range of criteria including: interviews with clients, peers and an analysis of work carried out over the last year.
Poppleston Allen maintained their standing in the Legal 500 as the only licensing law firm to appear in the top bands of two locations; these being London and the Regions. What’s more, the firm has more solicitors recommended for licensing than any other law firm.
It’s a similar story in Chambers & Partners, where again Poppleston Allen is the only licensing firm recommended in London and the Regions and has more licensing solicitors with the accolade ‘Leader in Field’ than any other. And now that London Partner Clare Eames has moved up to Band 1, Poppleston Allen is the only firm to have three top ranked licensing solicitors anywhere in England & Wales.
Jonathan Smith, Poppleston Allen’s Managing Partner, commented: “We are obviously delighted with these results. It really is quite an achievement; one the whole team is very proud of.”
Jonathan added: “These results come at a time of growth for Poppleston Allen and it’s great to see that an increase in clients has not seen any reduction in the top class service and advice the team provide. Our performance in these 2016 legal directories helps to strengthen our position as the No1 licensing law firm in England and Wales.”
The news came hot-on-the-heels of the firm being announced as part of the The House of Lords Select Committee to give advice on possible changes to the Licensing Act 2003.
