Aberdein Considine solicitors have been ranked among the best in the UK by Chambers & Partners Legal Directory, one of the world’s most respected legal guides.
The firm’s experienced Family Law team, which is led by Ruth Aberdein, was recognised by the guide as a market leader.
Ruth retained her ranking as a Band 1 lawyer and also achieved a Spotlight ranking this year, with Edinburgh based Family Law Partner Leonie Burke having increased her ranking.
In addition, there is a new ranking for Family Lawyer Isabelle Douglas, now Band 2.
Paul Jennings, Head of Commercial Real Estate, Ritchie Whyte, Senior Corporate Partner, Robert Holland, Head of Employment Law and Euan McSherry, Head of Dispute Resolution were also ranked.
Ranked departments included Family/Matrimonial (Aberdeen/surrounds), Real Estate up to £10m, Real Estate Litigation and Corporate M&A.
Chambers, which ranks and rates the best lawyers in the world based on client feedback, is highly regarded due to its independent research-based assessment of firms.
Commenting on the new rankings Ruth Aberdein said: “All of our lawyers and wider teams are focused on supporting our clients when and where they need us and it is extremely rewarding to receive this type of recognition.
From a Family Law perspective, we have the specialist knowledge and experience to ensure our clients receive the best advice at all times but it’s also great to see the firm recognised across a range of disciplines.”
