Lupton Fawcett has once again made a major impression at the top end of one the legal industry’s leading professional guides, the Legal 500.

The Leeds, York and Sheffield-based commercial law firm is listed in 21 different categories across the region. Specialist teams from the firm’s York office have achieved 14 higher tier rankings across a range of disciplines, ahead of most of the competition within the North Yorkshire region, including an impressive eight band two listings – amongst them a first-time entry for its corporate team in Sheffield.

In addition, Lupton Fawcett retained band two rankings for:

  • Agriculture and Estates (York)
  • Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate (Leeds and Sheffield)
  • Private Client – Contentious Trusts and Probate (Leeds)
  • Insurance – Prof Neg – Claimant (Leeds and Sheffield)
  • Human Resources – Employment (Leeds and York)
  • Family (Leeds and York)

Martin Frost, Director in firm’s Corporate team in York comments: “We are delighted to see the efforts of our teams across the firm recognised in this year’s Legal 500. It is great to see 14 of our teams with a strong York base rank highly, with 7 of these listed in a higher tier than any other York or North Yorkshire firm and a further 6 ranked in as high a tier as any in this region. This underlines the strength of our offering as the leading law firm in the York and North Yorkshire region, where our growing York-based teams can seamlessly draw upon expertise from across the firm to provide the best possible service to our clients.”

The firm also saw its charities and not-for-profits team in Leeds climb from band three to band two, and its commercial property department move from fourth to third in the highly congested West and North Yorkshire markets.

Richard continued, “To once again be recognised as one of the key regional players in over 20 different categories is a terrific endorsement of the work done by our specialist teams in all three of our Yorkshire offices; and really does go to show the strength and depth Lupton Fawcett offers.”
