Nottingham-based Law Firm In the Best 200 Legal Firms for 2020

Written By: Richard Nelson LLP
Edition: December 2019

Nottingham-based law firm, Richard Nelson LLP, has been named in the Times’ Best 200 legal firms list published by The Times for 2020.

Chosen out of 10,000 firms, Richard Nelson LLP was nominated by their competitors, recognising their exceptional work in the legal sector. Different to a typical award in the industry, The Times chose the top firms for the list by surveying other lawyers to see which firms they would recommend - other than their own.

Over the past 12 months, the firm has grown from strength to strength. Richard Nelson LLP has seen significant growth in 2019 with 18 new members of staff. This breaks down to 3 family consultants, 2 education consultants, 5 employment consultants, 3 commercial litigators, 1 commercial property consultant, 1 paralegal and 3 support staff.

The firm has also recently promoted senior members of their team, with Jacqui Callan being promoted to Partner. The firm has also developed its commercial offering with three new commercial litigators and a newly launched commercial property law service.

In the past year, the firm has seen an increase in privately funded criminal defence. The Professional Discipline Team represents professionals who are being investigated by their regulatory body about their fitness to practise in their profession and have recently been instructed by the Psychologists Protection Society to assist their members.

Marie Dancer, Managing Partner of Richard Nelson LLP, commented:

“We are absolutely thrilled to be on The Times Best Law Firms 2020 list. This is the only peer-selected league table where the criteria is based on asking UK lawyers on which firm they would recommend, other than their own. It is fantastic to receive this accolade from such a well-recognised organisation”.

Looking towards 2020, Marie Dancer commented on the firm’s recruitment drive and plans to launch new services. 

“We’re always considering new areas of service and offices. However, we are focused on finding the right lawyers with the right mindset. They have to be strong in their expertise and exceptional client care.”
