Browne Jacobson has enhanced its credentials as one of the countrys leading law firms according to independent legal guide Chambers UK which ranks law firms and lawyers in 70 specialist areas of the law.

In the latest edition of Chambers the firm doubled the number of practices it is ranked as first from six to twelve, including corporate m&a, dispute resolution, employment, environment, information technology, intellectual property, private client, professional negligence, real estate, real estate litigation, restructuring & insolvency and social housing.

Browne Jacobsons education team achieved a top national ranking for the first time whilst the firm also raised its rankings in five other practice areas including Administrative & Public Law, Banking & Finance, Construction, Local Government and Real Estate

Chambers UK also rates individual lawyers and once again a record number of the firms lawyers were rated as leaders in their field in this years directory. Of the 49 lawyers rated as leaders in their field, 32 are based in the firms Nottingham office, 14 in Birmingham and 3 in London.

For the first time a Browne Jacobson lawyer has been identified as a leading expert in three individual fields. Peter Ware has been identified as an expert in Local Government, PFI & PPP matters and Public Procurement. Seven of the firms lawyers also appear in two categories: Tony Child, Barry Sully, Nick Parsons, Dominic Offord, Peter Ellis, Richard Barlow and Simon Tait.

Amongst those lawyers joining the prestigious ranking for the very first time include Ben Troke (Court of Protection), Mark Hughes (Corporate), Nina Best (Media & Entertainment), Peter Ware (Local Government), Tim Rayner (Real Estate Litigation), Kate Andrews (Real Estate Litigation) Tony Child (Administrative and Public Law) and Lucy Worwood (Private Client).

William Colacicchi, Senior Partner at Browne Jacobson, said:

"This is the first time that we have had twelve of our practices ranked as first tier. It is a tremendous tribute to the outstanding knowledge, hard work and commitment to client service shown by members of those teams. This accolade demonstrates the breadth of talent working at the firm and is just reward for the investment we have made in recruitment and people development over many years."
