North West law firm Woodcocks Haworth & Nuttall Solicitors (WHN) has added to its enviable array of accolades after being singled out for success by a prestigious independent guide to the UK’s leading lawyers.

WHN Solicitors, which has eight offices across Greater Manchester and Lancashire, has been praised by Chambers and Partners in its 2023 UK guide. Chambers and Partners identifies and ranks the top four per cent of law firms globally, focusing on those that provide the best client experience across the board.

The firm has bolstered its presence in the rankings after achieving a higher tier in the North West Real Estate Litigation category, just one year after securing a ranking at the first attempt.

WHN is the only firm outside of the North West’s major cities to achieve ranking for real estate litigation, further highlighting its expertise in this niche and complex area of law. The team has been particularly praised for delivering ‘solid, no-nonsense advice and guidance, providing good support in all areas with a well-skilled team.’

Elsewhere, director Daniel Long, who also heads up WHN’s commercial department, has been singled out personally, achieving a highly-coveted place as an individual in the Real Estate Litigation category.

Daniel, who became the firm’s youngest ever partner seven years ago at the age of 28, has been applauded by Chambers and Partners for always providing ‘timely, commercially astute advice, offering creative solutions as well as staying on top of procedural elements of all matters.’

Commenting on the achievement, Daniel Long, director at WHN Solicitors, said:

“It’s fantastic to see our firm improve its ranking in Chambers and Partners, and for me to have been personally ranked as an individual too.

“The rankings set a high bar and showcase the very best in a given area of specialism, which makes our accomplishment of rising a place just one year after first being ranked in the guide even more significant. Well done to our team of people for their unwavering commitment to delivering excellent advice and service to our clients.

“I would also like to extend thanks to our clients and professional contacts for choosing to entrust our specialists with representing their best interests, as well as for taking the time to endorse our work. It is thanks to our clients that this enviable ranking has been made possible.”

Chambers and Partners is an independent research company which operates across 180 jurisdictions delivering detailed rankings and insight into the world’s leading lawyers.

The latest recognition comes on the back of a successful 12 months for WHN Solicitors, with the firm’s real estate litigation, commercial litigation and corporate and commercial law teams securing a place just three weeks ago in the 2023 edition of Legal 500.The firm also scooped the ‘Professional Services’ accolade at this year’s Red Rose Awards.

Michael Shroot, CEO at WHN Solicitors, added:

“We’re incredibly proud that our expertise has been recognised in such a highly esteemed guide. The firm has ranked alongside predominantly Manchester city centre firms, which is a huge achievement and true testament to the strength and depth of our team’s knowledge in what is an incredibly complex area of law.”
