25th October 2023 | Abby Cowan | Chambers and Partners, Legal Directories, Accreditation
Sherrards has had another year of successful results in the Chamber and Partners 2024 Legal Directories. We would like to extend our thanks to our clients and close contact for their time and feedback, as well as our teams who have put together the case studies submissions in order to help provide this year’s researchers with the evidence to conclude to some more positive results.
What is the significance of the Chambers and Partners submissions?
Sherrards Solicitors have been ranked in the Chambers and Partners legal directories for the last 10 years, with individual team members being ranked for even longer.
The importance of the Chambers and Partners submissions is to help build the reputation and work of our lawyers, the firm as a whole, and showcase the support we offer to our clients.
Each year we contact clients and key contacts of the firm to act as “referees” in our submissions. This means our clients kindly give up their time to take a call from the Chambers and Partners’ researchers to answer questions and give testimonials towards our team members. Our rankings could not be as successful as they are without the help of our lovely clients and contacts, we can’t thank them enough for their honesty and kindness.
Internally the Chambers and Partners rankings helps us retain and attract talented business professionals and lawyers to the firm. In order to continue our services, we want to attract the best and continue to offer a range of services at the highest standard for all our clients – old or new.
