L-R: Iain Hibbert, Emma Hill, Kelly Eagers and Alice Lees (Roythornes Solicitors)

Top 200 national law firm Roythornes Solicitors is celebrating after seven of its key practice areas were named in the Legal 500.

Roythornes’ agricultural and estates team added East Anglia to their collection of top tier rankings for providing quality legal services, whilst the firm’s commercial property team broke into the East Midlands real estate rankings for the first time.

The Legal 500 is the world’s most comprehensive analysis of law firms, this includes a research programme which is revised and updated every year to bring the most up-to-date vision of the global legal market.

Vember Mortlock, managing director at Roythornes Solicitors, said: “We are delighted with the progress we’ve made over the past year and our Legal 500 rankings are a reflection of the hard work and one team ethos we instil across all our offices.

“As a practice, we’re always looking to grow, learn and develop and in each of our practice areas we have some extremely talented individuals who are bringing their commercial know-how to the business and building longstanding relationships with clients.”    

Roythornes’ corporate and commercial team also ranked highly for providing a ‘consistently high-quality service’ to a varied client base which includes start-ups, family-owned businesses and public companies across the East Midlands.

The ‘methodical’, ‘knowledgeable’ and ‘well-respected’ Martin Jinks leads the team, which includes Julia Seary and associate Lizzie Walters, who ‘is an absolute credit to her firm’ – just some of the quotes included in the Legal 500 report. 

The firm’s personal injury and clinical negligence team, which is led by partner Victoria Stevenson, once again this year featured in the East Midlands insurance practice area. Meanwhile Roythornes’ family law team maintained its position in the rankings for private client services in the East Midlands due to its proven track record of advising on high-value cases involving farming families.

Roythornes’ legal services across the East Midlands and East Anglia covers a wide range of expertise, including agriculture, development, property, litigation, private client and family law with 200 of staff within the practice.
