Following an increasing year of results, Ashfords LLP has received strong rankings following the release of the year end Experian MarketIQ Deals Review.
Outranking all regional competitors and being first in the South West, Ashfords is positioned 11th nationally, one of the top 10 legal advisers in London for deal volume and is the only law firm with a South West presence in the top 20 for deal volume.
The results reinforce Ashfords' position as a national heavyweight corporate team and reflect the firms growth and commitment to their local communities in the South West and London as well as their sector strength in areas such as Technology, Retail and Energy & Waste giving national presence and reach.
Andrew Betteridge, Partner and Head of the Corporate and Commercial Team at Ashfords LLP, commented:
"This has been an outstanding year for our Corporate and Commercial Team and our recent rankings and recognition highlight our commitment to the increased national reach and quality of our offering together with our commitment to our local market places. Whilst the 81 deals reported is a significant number this year, we have a large number of unreportable transactions which saw the volumes in the team more than double in the past 12 months. It is a credit and testament to the commitment and quality of the entire team that we have received this well-deserved recognition.
"We have outranked all our regional competitors and to be the only law firm in the top 20 with a South West presence is a real achievement for the firm. We are very much looking forward to continuing this work for 2016."
