Murrell Associates features again in Legal 500 guide to UK law firms

8th October 2019

The Legal 500 is a well-respected independent guide which Murrell Associates have been delighted to be included in since 2010. As part of the rigorous application process, the Legal 500 judges review the type and quality of work undertaken by firms as well as obtaining references from their clients.

Murrell Associates retain a traditional client base in the South West alongside a growing number of national and European clients. The firm has a strong track record of providing specialist corporate and commercial legal advice to a range of different sectors with particular experience in the technology and food and beverage sectors.

This year, the corporate and commercial team at Murrell Associates were successful in being ranked in Tier 2 of the Legal 500, alongside much larger regional firms, once again confirming Murrell Associates’ place as a business law specialist and serious player in the region.

As well as the firm as a whole receiving recognition in the Legal 500, some of the team at Murrell Associates have also received special recognition from the judges. Rebecca Anforth, Head of Intellectual Property at Murrell Associates, has been highlighted as a ‘Rising Star’ in this year’s Legal 500 rankings. Rebecca said “I am delighted to be recognised as a “Rising Star” in the 2019 edition of the Legal 500. It is also great to see that the Intellectual Property team are listed in the directory in recognition of the standard of services it offers. This shows that a boutique law firm can provide a cost-effective alternative to the larger legal practices.”

Henry Maples, Partner at Murrell Associates, has been identified for the second year running as the South West’s ‘next generation’ partner in the field of corporate law. Henry said” it’s a great accolade to be recognised by Legal 500 again. Despite the uncertain economic climate, we have been lucky to assist on a number of exciting investment and M&A transactions both in the South West and out of region.

Hugh Murrell, Managing Director commented that: “As the provision of legal services becomes increasingly specialist, we feel that it is important for our clients to be reassured that an independent and experienced third party like the Legal 500 have reviewed and assessed our services and ranked us as one of the best providers in the South West.”
