North West law firm Gorvins Solicitors excel in Chambers and Partners UK 2016 with new practice areas and solicitors being recognised for their work.
The guide which is compiled through rigorous independent research and client feedback, recognises UK firms that provide high quality, client focused legal services. Noted in a number of practice areas for having ‘commercial awareness which is convincing and reliable’, ‘providing good customer service and a good commercial attitude’ and being ‘very accommodating and responsive teams’, Gorvins are particularly proud to have been recognised for their work.
Over the last 12 months Gorvins have invested in and strengthened niche areas within the firm and this was recognised with multiple practice areas achieving rank including Corporate/M&A for SME and Owner Managed Businesses, Real Estate and Private Client.
The Firm who operates from its South Manchester office in Stockport saw a number of its legal experts named in the research including Andrew Curwen (Corporate – Commercial Law) who was noted for his “no-nonsense approach which has proved very persuasive in debates with the other side on transactions.”
A new listing for Managing Partner Lorraine Lockie (Real Estate), who wins high praise from her clients and is recognised for her ability to balance the responsibilities as Managing Partner whilst playing a very active role in Commercial Property.
Elsewhere two experts from the Private Client team achieved recognition with Head of Department Christine Thornley being described as “open, friendly, succinct, clear and knowledgeable” and Partner Val Bown recognised for her “prompt and accurate responses.”
Lorraine Lockie, Managing Partner, commented: “As a Firm we are very proud to have been recognised in the Chambers UK 2016 guide for our hard work and continued commitment to clients and service excellence. In the last 12 months we have invested heavily in talent – both internally and new hires. This investment has been recognised by one of the UK’s most established legal guides and will ensure we are well placed to deliver the high level of service we provide to our clients.”
