Miles & Partners praised in 2016 Legal 500
We are delighted to announce that Miles & Partners has once again been recommended in the Legal 500 United Kingdom rankings. This includes being ranked for three of our practice areas: Court of Protection (tier 2), family (tier 4) and mediation (tier 2).
A number of our lawyers have been recognised for their talent. This includes Michelle Uppal, who has been listed in the elite ‘Leading Lawyers’ category. She has also been recommended in both the family and mediation categories, being described as a “brilliant mediator who has the ability to cut through the most intractable disputes” and who “really cares about reducing the animosity between the parties.”
The “exceptional” practice of our family law team has been singled out for its strength in children public law financial remedies work and its abduction expertise. Standout team members who have been recommended include “kind and intelligent” Kate Hammond, Stephen Talbot who has “an encyclopaedic knowledge of financial remedies” and the “calm and insightful” Amanda Dench.
Our Court of Protection team is recommended as it “punches significantly above its weight”, with the whole team praised for its considerable “in-depth knowledge and experience in this area.” Floyd Porter received a recommendation as he “always adds value to the case by being objective and strategic while remaining completely focused on his client.” Praise was also given to newly promoted partner, Rachel Turner, who “consistently brings commitment and humanity to all her cases.”
Phil Walsh, partner and practice manager at Miles & Partners says, “we are delighted to continue to be recognised by the Legal 500 for another year. We would like to congratulate everyone in the team and thank those clients and colleagues who took the trouble to provide feedback to the Legal 500 researchers.”
