Cheltenham firm ranked among the best in the UK

Gloucestershire-based law firm, BPE Solicitors, is again celebrating as the prestigious legal directory, Chambers UK, released its listings. Eight of BPE’s lawyers were included in the top three tiers of rankings, including Helen Cankett noted as a Recognised Practitioner in the Family and Matrimonial band, and Senior Partner John Workman as an Eminent Practitioner.

BPE’s teams featured in the rankings for corporate, employment, real estate, family and matrimonial, and private wealth. This comes on the back of the Cheltenham-headquartered firm being listed in nine categories in the annual Legal 500 rankings.

Such a diverse range of listings only serves to underline the depth and breadth of experience and excellence across all of BPE’s teams.

“Listings are created based on a number of factors including technical strength, prestige of key clients, market share and a firm’s reputation for handling complex cases,” explains John Workman, Senior Partner. “BPE achieves all of this, year on year, and we are proud of our client list. With leading names in Gloucestershire and the South West, combined with nationally known commercial clients such as Stobart Group and Mears Group, it’s clear that the high opinion of our lawyers in their respective fields is well deserved.

“Being included in both the Chambers and Legal 500 rankings is important for us as it recognises our work and the expertise of our staff, not just at partner level, but throughout the teams. We believe the service we provide to clients is outstanding, and seeing so many teams and lawyers mentioned is a real testament to their hard work and dedication.”

The BPE lawyers individually named across the two listings were: Lisa Gettins, Tim Gofton, Heyma Holmes, Sarah Lee, Antonia Shield, Doug Armstrong, Jo Bewley, Rebecca Maxwell, Anthony Rudge, Emma Payne, John Workman, Iain Garfield, Louise Grzasko, Tim Ward, Jonathan Sawtell-Gist, Philip Radford, Riyaz Jariwalla, Tom Hall, Helen Cankett, Jemma Jones, Clare Young and Peter Tyrrell

“These colleagues are a privilege to work with,” comments John. “Some have spent their entire career here whilst others have come from national firms but all embody the BPE commitment to clients”.
