Goodman Derrick Recommended by the Independent Legal Directories, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500

Goodman Derrick has received recommendations in all of its core commercial practice areas from the independent legal directories, Chamber & Partners and The Legal 500 in 2013. The directories carry out in depth research with buyers of legal services in order to recommend the best lawyers currently operating in the UK.

Senior Partner, Tim Langton, commented:

“The world in which our clients operate is increasingly regulated and international. Our aim is to provide practical and commercial advice to help our clients cut through complexity and achieve their goals as quickly as possible. We’re delighted that our work has again been recognised by Chamber & Partners and Legal 500.”

As well as recognition across our key commercial practice areas - including brand management, commercial property, construction, corporate, defamation and privacy, dispute resolution, employment, licensing, media, and media finance - our lawyers have also received sixteen separate personal acknowledgements in recognition of their expertise and client-focussed service.

Paul Herbert, Head of Media and Communications, commented:

“Goodman Derrick’s ability to deal with complex transactions and cases has long been recognised in the market and reflected in the legal directories. Naturally we will be maintaining our focus on providing sophisticated, partner-led advice to our clients.”
