In a study combining the findings of the Chambers UK and Legal 500 surveys for 2015, and conducted for the KM Group by Ross Cogan, former editor-in-chief of Chambers’ global directory, Locate in Kent corporate partner Cripps is the number one ranked Kent firm, while asb law comes in second, Brachers fourth and Furley Page sixth.
Described in the research as the ‘400lb gorilla in the Kent market’, Cripps’ gap over its nearest competitors in the county grew this year, largely due to its merger with Vertex Law in 2013, which happened too late for the directories to reflect last year.
Cogan’s study also ranks the county’s firms for specific areas of work. In the Corporate Commercial sector, asb law and Cripps are ranked joint first, with Brachers coming third, while Cripps leads the field in Dispute Resolution.
Cripps and Brachers head the rankings for the Property and public sector, while Cripps is second, asb law third, Brachers fourth and Furley Page fifth in the Private Client and Charities category.
The Chambers and Legal 500 surveys are compiled by teams of researchers who interview clients and review law company performances across a number of disciplines.
In further good news for Furley Page, Myfanwy McDonagh, a partner at the company, has been appointed vice-chair of a Law Society committee advising firms across the UK on commercial, residential, landlord and tenant issues.
