Thomas Mansfield Solicitors’ family team has broken into The Legal 500, a leading legal directory which analyses and ranks law firms across the UK on the quality of their expertise, client service and standing in the market.
The achievement comes as the team, led by Susi Gillespie, continues to grow rapidly, adding headcount and increasing the complexity of client mandates. Thomas Mansfield’s family team advises on divorce and separation and a broad range of family law issues, including mediation and collaborative law.
The directory commends the team for its “strong presence in the South East with offices in a very wide range of towns and across London and a clearly established reputation for providing excellent representation and client care, whilst also keeping fee levels/structures transparent and at a reasonable and realistic level”.
Family lawyers, Abigail Eriksson-Lee and Alice Scambler, are singled out as “extremely able partners in the team” who “think commercially and strategically to achieve the best possible results for their clients”.
Rankings are based purely on merit and reflect feedback provided to the directory from a broad cross-section of clients, lawyers within competitor practices and other professionals.
Head of family, Susi Gillespie, said: “I am exceptionally pleased to see the team recognised by The Legal 500. We have experienced an extended period of strong growth, which has seen the team double in size over the last 18 months. Achievements such as this and the positive feedback we receive from our clients remind us how worthwhile our work is.”
