Ellis Jones ranked in Legal 500 directory for the first time

Ellis Jones is ranked in the UK’s leading law sector directory – the Legal 500 – for the first time in its history.

Ellis Jones Solicitors’ Contentious Trusts & Probate, Corporate Commercial, Employment and Family departments all feature in the latest 2015 edition.

Four of the firm’s solicitors – Kate Brooks, Neil Cook, Lauren Day and Sean McNally – also receive recommendations in the directory.

The Legal 500 is an independent guide about law firms in the UK, based on in-depth market research, client feedback and interviews with lawyers, solicitors, barristers and accountants.

Nigel Smith, Managing Partner, said: “The Legal 500 directory is viewed by many as the legal sector’s ‘bible’.

“We’re very pleased to have received the independent endorsement of such a prestigious and highly regarded publication.”

The Legal 500 directory entries are:

  • Contentious Trusts & Probate: The ‘prompt, knowledgeable and helpful’ team at Ellis Jones Solicitors LLP advises on will validity disputes and proprietary estoppel claims. Lauren Day is recommended.
  • Corporate Commercial: At Ellis Jones Solicitors LLP, Neil Cook has particular expertise advising on care home transactions.
  • Employment: Ellis Jones Solicitors LLP acts for business clients on whistleblowing, discrimination claims and redundancies. The firm has a number of marine sector clients. Associate Kate Brooks gives ‘considered and appropriate’ advice.
  • Family: Ellis Jones Solicitors LLP brings ‘very efficient and effective case management’ to complex ancillary relief and international child abduction matters. Sean McNally is ‘a very good technical solicitor’.
