Hewitsons achieves strong Legal 500 results

Hewitsons has once again achieved impressive results in the Legal 500 guide, as the law firm continues to shine in key practice areas across East Anglia, the East Midlands and the South East. The annual publication ranks UK law firms and solicitors based on the results of extensive research, including client feedback interviews.

The 2019 guide – published yesterday (October 29) – names Hewitsons as a ‘top-tier firm’ in ten practice areas. These are Private Client (Agriculture & Estates; Charities & Not for Profit; Contentious Trusts & Probate; and Personal Tax, Trusts & Probate), Real Estate (Environment; Planning; Property Litigation; and Commercial Property), Dispute Resolution (Commercial Litigation) and Corporate and Commercial (Corporate and Commercial).

The leading law firm, which has offices in Cambridge, London, Milton Keynes and Northampton, also performed well in many other practice areas.

In addition, several Hewitsons solicitors have been recognised as ‘Leading Individuals’ within their respective specialisms, many having retained this elite status for several years running. Earlier this year, three of the firm’s Partners were also inducted into the Legal 500 Hall of Fame when it launched in the UK.

At various points within the 2019 guide, the Legal 500 calls Hewitsons a “key regional player”, says the firm “inspires confidence in the quality and depth of its advice” and praises its “attention to detail” and “expeditious handling of matters”. 

The results follow a period of particularly strong growth at the firm. Over the past 12 months, Hewitsons has achieved record revenues and profits, as well as many impressive legal successes, several prestigious contract wins and further accolades.

All this has enabled Hewitsons to continue investing heavily into everything from IT systems and infrastructure to people.

Managing Partner Colin Jones said: “The past 12 months have been particularly exciting for Hewitsons, as we have continued to ramp up investment on the back of strong growth. This puts us in a stronger position than ever before to continue delivering the very best results for our clients, all with the ‘Absolute Client Focus’ we pride ourselves on.

“We are pleased that this commitment has once again been recognised with excellent rankings in the Legal 500 guide, demonstrating our strong position across East Anglia, the East Midlands and the South East.

“These results could not have been achieved without the hard work and commitment of everyone at the firm, so, on behalf of Hewitsons, I would like to thank the entire team.”
