The firm has been recommended as a top-tier firm in 15 practice areas across the two directories, and is listed across 114 areas altogether.

In the Legal 500, 26 lawyers have been included in the elite ‘leading lawyers’ listing; nine have been named as ‘next generation partners’, and another 12 have received rising star status. In addition, one Partner was inducted into the Legal 500 Hall of Fame, which acknowledges the partners who are at the pinnacle of the profession.
In Chambers & Partners, nine Weightmans lawyers are ranked in the highest Band 1, as well as two star associates, six associates to watch, one senior statesperson and one eminent practitioner. The firm also secured a ranking in Chambers & Partners Global this year for Insurance (Contentious claims).
Managing Partner John Schorah said:
“A huge well done to all of our people who achieved rankings in this year’s legal directories; it is a testament to their stellar efforts and a great compliment to the firm.
“Feedback from the legal directories is invaluable to us as we continue to look at ways we can deliver the best client experience.
“This year has not been what any of us expected but I am incredibly proud of our people, who continue to be responsive, creative and innovative as we continue to work hard through challenging circumstances.”
The Legal 500 is widely regarded ‘as offering one of the most comprehensive and definitive reviews of law firms worldwide’ and Chambers & Partners Guide UK is recognised as ‘the most widely-used directory within the legal sector’.
