Breaking New Ground in the Legal 500

Dutton Gregory Solicitors is celebrating the recognition from research and findings by professional guide, The Legal 500, for both previously ranked departments and ones who have entered the directory of the first time.

Teams at Dutton Gregory Solicitors are finding pride in the 2024 rankings of the legal profession by The Legal 500. Departments specialising in Property Litigation and Medical Negligence have retained their listings from previous years, while both Family Law and Commercial Litigation make their debut in the professional listings.

“I felt an overwhelming sense of pride and achievement when I found out we had been ranked by Legal 500 for the first time,’ said Head of Family, Jonathan Whettingsteel, when asked about the news. “As a team, we have spent a lot of time over the last year sharing our knowledge, experience and expertise, as well as looking at ways to improve the service and support we offer clients, who are often going through one of the most difficult times of their lives.”

“We have also worked closely with the other legal teams at Dutton Gregory Solicitors to provide a holistic approach to ensuring our clients find strength and security at times in their lives when they can feel vulnerable,’ adds Partner and family law specialist, Helen Cort.  “The Legal 500 ranking feels like an external acknowledgement of all this effort, and it has given us the morale boost and determination to keep moving forward. It has renewed our excitement and purpose for the year ahead.”  

Meanwhile, Commercial Litigation has been cited as a ‘Firm to Watch’ based on its work over the past 12 months.

“Though we welcomed some new faces to the team, we have remained agile and responsive to needs of both clients and the business climate,” says Andrew Witt who leads the department. “To have had our recent work analysed and clients give their testimony and support praise feels fantastic and we are very grateful for their support.”
