Top tier law firm in The Legal 500 rankings for another year

Match are thrilled to announce that the The Legal 500, which provides the most comprehensive worldwide coverage on recommended law firms, has included Match Solicitors as a top tier firm for another year, following the release of its official rankings yesterday evening. This is excellent news for Match, who continue to lead the field in specialist education law.


Furthermore, founding partner Salima Mawji has been recommended as a leading individual in three separate categories of education law (individuals, institutions and schools), and four members of the Match team have been named as recommended individuals.


Here's what The Legal 500 they wrote about Match Solicitors:


Education specialist Match Solicitors is ‘a high-quality outfit’, valued for its ‘commitment, client care and professionalism’. The firm advised on a school placement case, and represented a university student in appealing an exam result. Salima Mawji who is ‘an expert in the field of higher education’, and Anita Chopra, ‘who has an excellent practical understanding of the schools sector’, co-head the team, which was bolstered by the May 2015 arrival of Chris Barnett and Kevin McManamon from Levenes.


More key points from The Legal 500's write-up of Match are as follows:

  • Match Solicitors entered The Legal 500 as a recommended law firm for education less than two years after its inception 
  • The vast majority of cases do not end in court as the key objective is to settle matters favourably for the client 
  • The directors and lawyers within the firm have a reputation as being ‘bright’ lawyers delivering an outstanding service alongside excellent results
  • Over the years, it has helped thousands of parents and students achieve the best possible outcome more often than not, without recourse to the courts
  • The directors are ambitious and continue to create a thriving education practice with a resounding reputation for quality of work, service to the client and uncompromising excellence

All testimonials


I would be very willing to recommend Match Solicitors to anyone else needing a specialist education solicitor. They were thorough, knowledgeable, worked in a timely manner and were generally a pleasure to work with.

Mrs McMahon, Cambridge

I found the overall service extremely professional, knowledgeable, efficient and sensitive with regard to my matter. I felt Match always kept me informed and abreast of procedures with legal explanation wherever necessary. arose I would have no hesitation in approaching Match again and would have pleasure in recommending their services to anyone in need of professional educational assistance.

Ms Noel, Middlesex

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.
