Knights are proud to have been recognised as a leading firm in the South East by the Legal 500 in the practice areas of Agriculture and Estates and Public Sector.
The Legal 500 is one of the leading sources of information on UK law firms and solicitors that have been recognised as leaders in their fields. A guide is produced each year through a comprehensive research programme involving discussions with clients and members of the firms which the guide seeks to assess. The result of the Legal 500’s research is a comprehensive assessment of the strengths of law firms and solicitors, which are then ranked by their fields of practice.
We retain our tier two ranking in respect of Agriculture and Estates, with Matthew Knight being singled out again as a leading individual in this practice area and an acknowledged “expert litigator in a wide range of matters”. The firm itself is noted for “…its litigation work on a broad spectrum of contentious matters regarding agriculture and estates, including environmental, real estate and rural sport issues.”
For the first time Knights has also been ranked as a leading firm in the area of Public Sector, obtaining a tier four ranking. In respect of the Public Sector work the firm undertakes, the Legal 500 notes that the firm “…has an 'excellent' local government offering and leverages its public law team to handle an assortment of matters for local authorities and political lobby groups”.
The client testimonials included in the Legal 500’s write up single out Simon Bell for particular mention for his skill and expertise in this area of law.
The firm remains committed to ensuring that it provides an excellent service to our clients, no matter what the issue is that they bring to us and it is an honour for us to have been recognised by the Legal 500 in this way.
