Andrew Davison OBE’ head of corporate’ was once again listed as a ‘Hall of Fame’ individual’ a ranking which recognises law firm partners who are at the pinnacle of the profession. The firm’s responsiveness and down to earth approach were highlighted in client’s feedback with clients commenting:
“We are generally impressed by the responsive nature of the team and the ability to have one focal client partner who leads the delivery of advice by their team. We are also impressed generally by the quality of advice in complex unique situations. We were impressed by their seamless transition to efficient working practices and its lack of impact on us as a client.”
“I think what makes Muckle stand out is their client care and communication. They have all of the competencies required and a broad base of expertise to work from but in comparison to others they are more client-focused and easier to engage with.”
Managing partner Jason Wainwright said: “These outstanding results reflect the hard work our teams put in every day’ going the extra mile to deliver an exceptional service to our clients. I’d like to thank all our clients who took the time to take part in the research process.
“We’ve improved or maintained our position in every area’ with more top tier rankings than ever before’ showing that we continue to have a strong national’ regional and local presence from our North East base. Muckle is proof that you can remain independent’ retain your regional focus and perform at the very highest level.
“it’s fantastic recognition and one I believe reflects the values that run through our firm. Much of our client’s feedback pointed to our strong team ethic and joined up approach’ and it’s encouraging to see our values really shine through in their quotes. “We’re recruiting at the moment and hiring and developing the right employees’ who are highly skilled and committed to our values’ is incredibly important to us.”
