What is the Legal 500?

The Legal 500 is an organisation that analyses law firms and solicitors across 150 jurisdictions and ranks and recommends the top 500 each year based on their performance, quality and strengths. The Legal 500 is a helpful guide for clients to analyse which law firm or solicitor is best suited to deal with their legal issues.

We look forward to seeing Simon work closely with our commercial clients and businesses in Surrey and beyond.
