The success continues for Farleys Solicitors LLP with the release of this year’s Chambers & Partners annual guide to the legal profession. This year’s rankings further recognise the outstanding legal work of the firm’s serious crime, personal injury and family law departments. This year is the 10th consecutive year the firm has been listed in the directory and place Farleys among the top firms in the region.

Chambers and Partners is a globally accredited organisation, established in 1990 as an independent company specialising in ranking top lawyers and law firms. Based on a series of client and peer interviews, the guide is one of the most trusted overviews of the legal profession.

Once again criminal department achieved first class ratings and were commended for their work in both serious and financial crime. As well as being accredited on a collective level, partner and head of Farleys’ fraud and business crime department Paul Schofield was praised for his individual contribution, placing him in the top band of lawyers nationwide in both crime & financial crime. The continued success of the department over the last decade demonstrates the team’s continuing reputation in the field of criminal defence.

Partner and head of the family law department, Antonia Love was also recognised as a leading lawyer, and is particularly commended in the guide in the area of matrimonial finance. Antonia is described as “clever, direct, capable – exactly what a family lawyer should be.”

The personal injury department were commended again this year for their provision of excellent legal services. The department’s notable experience in personal injury work, including catastrophic injuries sustained in RTAs were highlighted, as was the department’s capabilities for handling high-profile abuse cases.

The Chambers and Partners rankings place Farleys among the top firms Greater Manchester & Lancashire and affirm further recognition for the firm following on from last month’s excellent Legal 500 rankings.

Overall the rankings give Farleys a strong finish to 2014, which we look forward to continuing into the New Year.
