Lester Aldridge has been named in The Times Best Law Firms 2022, a list of the top 200 law firms in England and Wales.

The list features the best lawyers for business, public and private-client law as voted on by their peers in other law firms.

The survey was undertaken by Statista on behalf of The Times, an international market research firm. They asked solicitors in England and Wales to recommend the best law firms in any of 26 categories covering business, public and private-client fields.

To ensure the survey is fair, respondents cannot choose their own law firm and the system only allows people to vote once. Those with the most votes from 4,619 respondents made it into The Times Best Law Firms 2022. Scottish law firms were also surveyed.

Matthew Barrow, the managing partner at Lester Aldridge, comments: “With only 200 of the 10,000 law firms in England and Wales making the list, we are hugely proud to have been featured in the list. To have been endorsed by our peers in this way, particularly during such turbulent times for the legal sector, is a fantastic achievement and I would like to thank the whole Lester Aldridge team for making this possible.”

Lester Aldridge was also recently ranked as the top law firm in Dorset in leading legal directories The Legal 500 UK 2022 and Chambers UK 2022.
