Teams and lawyers at FBC Manby Bowdler are officially among the best in the UK, according to a new prestigious guide to the country’s top legal talent.
The 2021 Chambers singles out the firm’s corporate litigation, family & matrimonial and agriculture & rural services departments for praise as well as naming seven solicitors as ‘ranked individuals’.
Midlands-based Litigation Partner Guy Birkett was named as a "fantastic lawyer with a pragmatic mind," while his colleague Partner Charlotte Clode was recognised for her "clear, concise and no-nonsense" approach as an ‘Up and Coming” ranked individual.
Family teams in Wolverhampton and Shropshire also attracted praise for providing advice on financial disputes and providing an impressive breadth of service, with the latter seeing a top tier Band 1 ranking and recognition for department head Anne Thomson and her colleague Philip Cowell.
The guide acknowledged Anne’s expertise in negotiation as a "practical problem-solver who is very easy to work with" adding that her " financial remedy skills are second to none."
Head of the Agriculture team, Sarah Baugh, was recognised as a "very accomplished transactional lawyer," adept at advising landed estate clients and other landowners on their property and business assets. She was joined on the list by Partner Tom Devey and consultant Steven Corfield, who was named as a ‘senior statesperson’.
Managing Director Neil Lloyd said: “Chambers is a respected guide to the top legal talent in the country and we’re delighted to have our teams across Shropshire and the wider Midlands recognised in this edition.
“Our aim is always to deliver the best service and legal advice to our clients and it is clear from the reviews and comments in the guide that we are doing this day in, day out.
