Pryers Recognised as Leading Clinical Negligence Firm for 2022

The logo to show that Pryers Solicitors are listed as a 'Leading Firm' in the 2022 edition of The Legal 500.

Last Wednesday, 29th September 2021, the legal world waited with bated breath, for the The Legal 500 Rankings 2022 to be published.

Each year, The Legal 500 assesses the strengths of law firms in over 150 jurisdictions, of which the result, i.e. ‘Rankings’, are published each year.  The rankings are based on a series of criteria, but in simple terms, they highlight the practice area teams who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel. 

For 2022, Pryers have held on to their Tier 2 ranking for Clinical Negligence, which means we are recognised as one of the leading clinical negligence firms for 2022.

Partner, Lisa Swales has also held on to her ranking for 2022, and has been recognised as ‘Next Generation Partner’ for another year running. But that’s not all. Senior Solicitor, Tamlin Bolton has been recognised as a ‘Key Lawyer’ and in addition to this, our Partners, plus Tamlin have received some fantastic testimonials too.
