Celebrating exceptional Legal500 client feedback in this year’s directory

The latest edition of the Legal 500 guide was published on 30 September and we are pleased to say that Foot Anstey has again been highly ranked in a number of different legal practice areas.

Overall, we are ranked in 37 different sections in this year's guide, with top tier rankings in 8 practice areas. Our lawyers have also received 111 individual recommendations for their knowledge and legal acumen.

Looking beyond the raw numbers, however, we are both gratified and humbled by the feedback our clients provided to Legal 500's researchers.

A recurring theme throughout the feedback was that our lawyers are practically minded and take the time to understand clients' businesses and the goal they are trying to achieve. For us, this is a point that we strive to differentiate ourselves on in the legal market, so it is very encouraging to see so many clients describe us in these terms, unprompted and through an anonymous and independent research process.

We have included a selection of our favourite quotes below. You can read everything else our clients said about us at legal500.com.

What our clients say about us:

"The skill, experience and expertise of the firm was just as good, if not better than the mid-market (silver circle) firms we typically work with"

"Foot Anstey understand their clients' needs in practical terms as well as legal terms, and work with them to agree workable solutions rather than just posing problems."

"Responsive and pragmatic, Foot Anstey were focused on the desired practical outcome, as opposed to simply the legal position."

"They are not only professional but personable, set great stock in investing in long-term relationships and taking time to understand our business needs"

"Foot Anstey is a good fit for our business. The firm recognises the need to maintain its client relationships and is transparent on fees/time incurred. They offer good solid advice (even on short notice) and have a number of very talented individuals working for them."

"Over 35 years I have worked with numerous UK-based IP and general firms with IP departments and Foot Anstey has been the best UK experience I have had to date."

"Foot Anstey are our go to on all things property, providing high quality and innovative solutions."
