Thorntons has been recognised for its legal expertise and experience in new rankings released by the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners directories.

Thorntons retained its rankings across 12 different categories including corporate and commercial, social housing, family and employment, securing a higher tier two ranking in commercial property, intellectual property and personal injury.

Legal 500 singled out five Thorntons specialists as rising stars, including a first appearance for legal director, Kirsty Stewart.

Lucy Metcalf was named a next generation partner for her work in the family law team while an additional 37 lawyers and practice heads across the firm were recommended.

Thorntons was recommended in 13 practice areas including real estate, healthcare, education and product liability, achieving top tier ranking for personal injury in Chambers.

Partners Sandra Sutherland and Gordon McBean were recognised for their expertise in family and personal injury law respectively, securing a prestigious tier one ranking. An additional 16 lawyers in the firm were also recommended, many for the first time.

Lesley Larg, Thorntons managing partner, said: “Being recognised in two prestigious directories for another year, across a number of specialist areas of law, is an incredible endorsement of the quality of our work and the expertise of our team.

“The rankings reflect our commitment to high service standards for our clients, and our desire to find the best solutions no matter how complex the case.

“We’d like to thank all of our valued clients and professional contacts who took the time to recognise the support they receive from Thorntons. That recognition inspires us to continually go the extra mile for our clients.”
