Gullands has been commended for its consistently high levels of service across seven practice areas by the legal market ‘bible’ The Legal 500 UK 2014 edition, and two partners have also been recommended in 2015 Chambers and partners UK.
Paul Mannering, Practice Manager at Gullands, said: “These rankings are confirmation that Gullands is continuing year on year to provide an excellent quality service to people and businesses across the South East. As a firm we have in-depth capability in a range of areas and a strong reputation for handling complex and challenging work.”
The Legal 500 ranked Gullands as a leading firm in seven separate legal sectors including crime, commercial litigation, charities and not-for-profit, family, personal tax, trusts and probate, construction and social housing. John Roberts, head of criminal litigation, is highly recommended and the criminal team is praised for its high standards and quality of work representing “a broad criminal practice ranging from white-collar crime to drink driving cases”.

She is experienced in TUPE issues, settlement agreements, redundancy and restructuring matters.” David is commended for his focus, “on contentious construction, acting for contractors, subcontractors and professionals. Clients describe him as ‘very meticulous’
and particularly note his ‘amazing’ negotiation skills”.
