Ellisons Solicitors are pleased to announce top rankings in the latest edition of Chambers and Partners.

The annual legal research undertaken by Chambers and Partners, whose 2013 directory was launched on Thursday 1st November, has reaffirmed Ellison’s position as one the leading law firms in the region.

Proud to be one of the East of England’s oldest established legal practices, the firm, which is now under the leadership of Guy Longhurst, who succeeded Peter Powell in May, has enjoyed a great year of success. This was reflected in the Chambers UK directory, in which a top ranking was achieved.

Individual rankings were also given to Nicola Coates, Head of Family; Lee Pearce, Head of Property Litigation and Guy Longhurst, Peter Powell and Andrew Tilsley from the Commercial Property Team.

Ellisons were also pleased to achieve improved rankings as a firm in Family Law, Property Litigation and Commercial Property.

Senior Partner, Guy Longhurst, said: ‘‘I am delighted with the classifications made by Chambers and Partners, which reflect the hard work of our team of excellent lawyers.’’

‘‘We aim to build long lasting relationships with our clients, to understand their requirements, be they businesses or private individuals and to provide them with high quality advice, which they can understand and will inevitably help them to achieve their goals. The rankings made by Chambers and Partners confirm this.’’
