Archers celebrate Legal 500 success

A Tees Valley law firm is celebrating after all of its service areas were recommended in the world’s largest independent legal guide.

Archers Law has been listed across nine service categories in the Legal 500, a globally respected directory of lawyers and law firms across the UK and internationally.

It is the first time the Stockton-based firm has been recommended for every service area it provides and cements its reputation for providing excellent legal services across a range of specialisations.

Archers Law, which employs 50 staff, led by a team of seven partners, has also retained its ranking amongst the North of England’s top law firms for commercial property services.

Christopher Todd, Head of Commercial Property and a Partner at Archers Law, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be recommended in the Legal 500 again, particularly as this is the first time every service area in the firm has gained Legal 500 status.

“That’s an admirable achievement when you consider we are up against some far larger firms, particularly those in Newcastle. I would like to thank everyone across Archers Law for putting in a great effort on our client care.”

Published for over 20 years, the Legal 500 provides the most comprehensive worldwide coverage currently available on legal services providers. It is an entirely independent assessment based upon impartial reviews from clients and customers.
