A CITY law firm is celebrating after being named in two leading legal directories in the last three weeks.

Harrison Clark Rickerbys has been ranked among some of the best in the country in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners directories.

Both sets of rankings are based on clients' assessments of the firm.

The corporate team, based in Worcester, which covers the Midlands and serves both national and international clients, was said to be “Superb to work with and absolutely excellent.

"They are very agile and have a strong skill set, so are able to bring in knowledge where needed.”

Rod Thomas, managing partner, who heads up the firm’s corporate team overall, was identified as an eminent practitioner, and colleague Arpinder Dhillon, who heads the Wye Valley office, was said to be a leader in her field, with one client saying: “You get instant replies and updates constantly on what is happening and nothing is too much trouble for her.”
