Muckle improves Legal 500 rankings again

The Legal 500 UK rankings are hot off the press, and we've received another excellent review. Clients have praised our ‘open, honest and transparent’ approach. Others described us as ‘forward thinking’ and ‘business minded’ among a host of fantastic client comments.

Thanks to our clients

The rankings, which are based on independent research and thousands of client interviews, compare the service of law firms in the region. This year, we have maintained or improved our rankings in almost all areas and now have more Legal 500 recommended lawyers than ever before.

None of this would be possible without the support of our clients and we are over the moon with all the lovely comments featured in the review.

This year’s highlights

  • 9 top tier rankings across the firm.
  • 30+ recommended lawyers and leading individuals.
  • Agriculture has moved up one tier - a great achievement just two years after the team was established.
  • Sport receives national recognition – due to it’s large number of elite and national sporting clients including several Premier League Football clubs, England Athletics and the FA.
