PAUL SCHOFIELD, partner and head of Farleys Solicitors’ Special Cases Unit, has had his legal skills acknowledged after being listed as one of the top criminal lawyers in the country for the fourth year running in Chambers Legal Guide, which is viewed as the definitive guide to legal services throughout the world. Paul also gained a top national placing in Chambers for the second year running for his work in fraud.

Paul has further been named in The Law Society’s Anti-money Laundering Directory as a leading figure and he has been re-elected to the Specialist Fraud Panel, where he advises on Very High Cost Criminal cases (VHCC), for the seventh year running.

His inclusion in the above comes at the same time that he joins a distinguished list of famous faces and fellow professionals, including North West boxer Ricky Hatton and entrepreneur Peter Jones of BBC’s Dragon’s Den fame, in Debrett’s People of Today 2008.

Inclusion into the guide for the second time is a major achievement for Paul, who joined Farleys 30 years ago. He has successfully represented clients in a number of high profile cases this year including high value money laundering, conspiracies to defraud and international people trafficking.

Debrett’s People of Today is an annual publication which lists over 25,000 of the UK’s most successful and influential people and is used as a reference tool by a wide range of companies, education establishments, political figures, media organisations and charity groups for research purposes.

So if you’re reading this and need Paul’s assistance, you should find it easy to look him up!
