Debenhams Ottaway is proud that eight of its practice areas continue to be ranked in the Legal 500 directory.

The Legal 500 is a leading UK legal directory that puts together an annual list of the best firms based on recommendations from clients, referrers and fellow professionals.

Amongst those maintaining recognition for their consistent and excellent client service were the Family, Employment, Commercial Litigation, Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Property and Personal Injury teams. Equally positive was the recognition of 10 of the firm’s Partners and Associates, and in particular Nicholas Turner and Ruth Boulton as ‘leading individuals’.

The firm’s Private Client team retained its top tier position, and the team were praised for their “outstanding service” and described as being “swift, effective and extremely knowledgeable.”

Debenhams Ottaway’s Charities team were noted as being a “local leader” and act for a number of well-known local and national charities, including the St Albans Diocesan Board of Finance and Crohn’s and Colitis UK. The charity team have been recognised for providing “appropriate advice on a timely basis at a reasonable price” and Practice head, Nicholas Turner has been acknowledged for his “practical approach and ability to spot potential problems”.

Debenhams Ottaway is very proud of its teams and what they have achieved. It is their people who really stand out, having been recognised for their hard work and legal expertise, in a competitive market.

Managing Partner, Susan Glenholme comments: “This is fantastic recognition for our teams, particularly because the feedback is given by our clients and referrers. Our lawyers work tirelessly to look after their clients and it is great to see this acknowledged. It is a team effort by all our lawyers across the firm, with special congratulations to our leading lawyers. We are very proud to have been looking after our individual and business clients for over 250 years and will continue to put our clients needs at the heart of everything we do”.
