Fenwick Elliott recommended as top tier law firm in prestigious legal directories

Following the release of The Legal 500 UK 2024 directory, the Chambers and Partners 2024 guide, and The Times’ Best Law Firms 2024 list, we are pleased to announce that Fenwick Elliott has once again been recognised for its leading construction law service. 

The Legal 500 UK ranks Fenwick Elliott as a Tier 1 firm for contentious construction law expertise, with additional rankings held in non-contentious construction and international arbitration. As an independent guide, The Legal 500 recommends firms and individuals based on merit, focusing on the strength of the team and the consistency of quality of the individuals. The latest edition describes Fenwick Elliott’s team as “an outstanding group of hardworking individuals who show extraordinary commitment to their clients”. 17 lawyers have also received individual recognition for their work.

Chambers and Partners recommends Fenwick Elliott as Band 1 for contentious construction expertise, and also ranks the firm for non-contentious construction and international arbitration. The 2024 guide notes: “The Fenwick Elliott lawyers have excellent knowledge of the areas in which they advise. They understand and strive to understand the underlying commercial aspects of our business and frame their advice into that context”. In addition to our firm rankings, both Senior Partner Simon Tolson and Managing Partner Tony Francis received ‘Band 1’ status, whilst a number of our lawyers received individual recognition. Further information can be found in the Chambers and Partners 2024 guide.

Finally, we are recognised as one of the three best firms for construction law in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2024. The list is comprised of recommendations from more than 4,300 solicitors and barristers across England, Wales and Scotland, with fewer than 3% of law firms recommended by respondents making it to the final list. 

Senior Partner Simon Tolson comments:

“Thank you to our clients and peers for their kind comments for these guides, and congratulations to the whole firm for the recognition we have received. Our unwavering focus is on continuing to be at the forefront of construction and energy law and fielding the best teams in the industry to support our clients.”
