We are delighted to announce that Match Solicitors have just achieved ‘Band 2’ recognition by the prestigious Chambers & Partners publication. This breaking news is on the back of our recent inclusion in Tier 1 of the Legal 500 and being shortlisted by Legal 500 in the best specialist law firm category.
So why are we so pleased?
Well, Chambers & Partners have been ranking the best law firms across the world since 1990, covering 185 jurisdictions. They publish the leading guides to the legal profession and they are highly respected within the industry for their objective research and in-depth analysis of the sector. With a team of over 150 highly skilled researchers, they painstakingly go through the task of identifying, researching and ranking the world’s best law firms so to be ranked as ‘Band 2’ in the UK is high praise indeed and something we’re very proud of.
To receive this banding both Salima Mawji and Anita Chopra, the co-directors of Match Solicitors, had to undergo rigorous telephone interviews as did some of our clients. The end result is that the information gained to compile the rankings is highly credible and drawn straight from experience, both from a lawyer and client perspective.
Quoting directly from Chambers & Partners publication:
Anita Chopra advises parents and individuals on SEN issues across both the maintained and independent sectors. She has "huge breadth of experience across all kinds of education" and "has a great instinct for cases."
Commentators describe Salima Mawji, first ranked in Chambers UK 2007.,as "very effective," particularly recommending her "great tactical overview of a case and really strong sense of the best points and the best way to approach things strategically."
There is no doubt that Chambers & Partners stands out for its comprehensive evaluation of the legal marketplace and the integrity of its research. To be included in the publication gives Match Solicitors the necessary clout and kudos within the Education Law sector and this is why both Anita and Salima are frequently consulted by the media for their opinions on topics within the industry.
