Legal 500 has been analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world for 33 years. Its directory highlights the practice area teams that provide the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel.
Research carried out by Legal 500 is based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms, interviews with leading private practice lawyers, and a team of researchers. More than four million users visit the Legal 500 website each year and this guide offers those buying legal services in the UK, reliable and up-to-date information on law firms.
The 2021 directory shows that all Brachers’ practice areas maintained their rankings besides construction.

Partners Sarah Gaines, Scott Alexander, Allis Beasley, Graham Wallis and John Sheath all maintained their title of ‘leading lawyers’. John Sheath also upheld his position in the hall of fame. Claire Williams was named a leading lawyer for the first time as a Brachers Partner.
