The firm also improved in rankings for London in Health, Personal Injury and Education. Its Administrative & Public Law and Commercial Property work was also recognised for the first time.

The directory also ranked eight of the firms partners as leading individuals in their field. They include:

Nottingham

  • Gavin Cummings
  • Mark Blois
  • Nigel Blackwell
  • Edward Benson
  • Caroline Green
  • Mark Snelgrove

Birmingham

William Colacicchi, Senior Partner at Browne Jacobson, commented: "We are delighted that such a prestigious publication has applauded us for our strong regional credentials and growing national presence in so many areas. We operate in a competitive market place so to continually improve our position year on year is a tribute to our teams and the service they provide clients."

Legal 500 is one of the UKs leading independent reviews of legal service providers. As part of the ranking process researchers seek feedback from both clients and peers, to gauge the performance of firms. Firms are then ranked in tiers by practice area.
