Kent based law firm Furley Page has achieved an exceptional set of results in the annual rankings published by the UK’s independent national legal guide, Chambers UK.

Teams in nine specialised areas and eleven individual lawyers within the firm have been recognised for their legal expertise and outstanding services to clients.

The Corporate Team has been ranked at the highest level again for SME and owner-managed business. Partner and Head of Corporate Susan Jennings, who is personally recognised, is held in high regard by clients. “She tells it like it is, very straight and to the point,” is one comment.

Partner Tony Chester – described as “excellent” by one client – is personally listed as part of the Corporate Team for the first time, having previously been included for his work with the Charities Team.

The firm, who are corporate partners of Locate in Kent, has also been praised for their Employment Team, which provides “exceptional service”, as well as receiving individual recognition for Partner and Head of Employment Andrew Masters and Amanda Okill.

The firm’s Real Estate Litigation Team is praised for its skilled resolution of disputes involving landlords and tenants. Property litigator Jeremy Ferris is personally recognised, as is David Hall, Partner and Head of Property Dispute Resolution, who is personally included for the first time just weeks after he retained his place in the elite ‘Leading Lawyers’ list of outstanding lawyers nationwide in The Legal 500 UK Awards.

Furley Page’s Agricultural and Rural Affairs Team is also recognised, while Senior Associate Ethan Desai, a new addition to the team in 2016, is personally rated. He had also been ranked at his previous law firm.
