Today the team at Bendles Solicitors are celebrating after scooping a highly acclaimed listing in the in The Legal 500 – the leading guide to law firms and solicitors in the UK.
This is the first time Bendles have appeared in the listings, which is viewed by more than six million users each year. The guide offers those buying legal services, reliable and up-to-date information on the firms operating in the dynamic UK legal market.
We have received the accolade for our work in the Family Law sector in the North area category of the guide, with partner Rebecca Tonkin leading the Family Law team. Along with Rebecca, Alison Bone has been highlighted as highly experienced in children matters, including care proceedings, adoption, special guardianship and complex private law cases, while Vivienne Clough and consultant Doug Claxton take the lead on matrimonial work. Hannah Smith and Elizabeth Wilson are also solicitors within the Family law team.
Our family law team expanded into south Cumbria in January 2020, with the arrival of Elanor Findlay, whose practice spans a wide range of family law work, including civil partnership dissolutions, cohabitation disputes, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, and injunctive relief.
“It is fantastic to be listed in the Legal 500. This is the first time we have been listed in the guide, so it’s a huge achievement for the team and we are so proud that all our hard work, along with the fantastic testimonials from clients have been rewarded.”
The rankings for the Legal 500 are the result of many months of work, with an in-depth analysis of hundreds of submissions from legal firms across the country. It gives users an informed choice when choosing a solicitor to work with, showing that firms are ranked and recommend as one of the top 500 legal firms in the UK.
