Following on from their recent recommendation in the Legal 500, Porter Dodson’s position as one of the leading law firms in the South West has been further enhanced by its ranking in the latest publication of Chambers UK.
The Chambers UK directory is based on feedback and recommendations from clients and peers. It is considered one of the most respected and trusted independent guides when searching for reliable, capable and appropriate lawyers.
The rankings are defined by Chambers as ‘Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client.’
