SA Law’s unique Family team has been awarded a top rank in the annual research of celebrated legal directory Chambers and Partners. The 2015 research recognises the high level of expertise and service that SA Law delivers across all areas of family law, particularly for couples facing relationship breakdown, and matters involving children.
The team’s ‘business approach for business professionals’ has had a huge positive impact on the region over recent years, with particular expertise in the needs of executives, directors, entrepreneurs, owner-managers and their spouses.
Many of SA Law’s business-focused teams also received prominent rankings in the directory. The firm’s many sector strengths are another key lure for clients, who range from property developers to sports professionals.
Marilyn Bell and Kiran Beeharry are singled out as key individuals within the team.
The Chambers Guides have been ranking the best law firms and lawyers since 1990, with 150 full-time editors and researchers conducting in-depth telephone interviews with lawyers and clients.
For 2015, Chambers and Partners writes:
“A very good alternative to a City firm. They know what they are doing, they are well organised and they have recruited quite smartly from the top London firms. They have a good core team, and they don’t have the premium fees for London firms.”
“From the get-go I was pleased with the firm. I explained my situation and they gave me a plan. They showed me what they were doing to identify risks and what would and would not work. There was no hidden agenda, no hidden fees and I knew the risks and the costs upfront.”
