For second year running, Bevan Brittan has been recognised as one of the UK’s best law firms by The Times.

In The Times’ Best Law Firms 2020 national report, Bevan Brittan has three legal practices recognised, with the Employment, Pensions & Immigration team recognised for the first time alongside the firm’s Administrative & Public Law and Clinical Negligence practices.

This success follows other recent accolades for the national firm, winning ‘Property Law Firm of the Year’ at the West Midlands Insider Media Property Awards and winning ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Private Sector’ at the Health Investor Awards.

Bevan Brittan also strengthened its rankings in the highly respected Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 directories. The firm was ranked ‘Tier One’ across eight practice areas in the Legal 500 and in five practice areas in this year’s Chambers’ directory, including Social Housing, Local Government, Healthcare and Clinical Negligence.    

Managing Partner Duncan Weir said: “To be named as one of the UK’s best law firms by The Times is excellent recognition of Bevan Brittan’s well-rounded market knowledge and legal and regulatory expertise. That we’ve been named in the report for a second consecutive year, based upon the views of fellow legal professionals, underlines our reputation and demonstrates the confidence of the legal community in our practice.

“This inclusion in The Times’ report recognises that, since 2012/13, we have organically grown our revenue by 40%, built upon a balanced client portfolio that focuses on local and central government, health and social care and the wider housing sector with successful expansion into energy sustainability, manufacturing, insurance and technology. As a result, we now advise more than 800 businesses across the country.”

The Times’ Best Law Firms 2020 report is designed to assess which legal professionals and law firms are most highly rated by lawyers in their specialist fields, covering over 25 categories. The firms with the most votes, from a survey of over 3,000 solicitors, made it into the final list.
