Barker Gotelee builds on strong presence in Legal 500 with more mentions for 2015

At Barker Gotelee we have enjoyed a strong presence in the East Anglian edition of the Legal 500 for a number of years and the 2015 edition is no exception.

With rankings in eight categories of work this year, we also have two outstanding individuals listed.

John Bradshaw is listed as a leading individual in the Insolvency and Corporate Recovery category:

“The efficient and cost-effective’ John Bradshaw provides ‘first class service with a commercial approach.’ He advised liquidators on the distribution of £600,000 in assets. ‘Despite its small size, it more than matches up to larger players,’ say clients of Barker Gotelee.”

Richard Barker is also listed in the publication as a leading individual in the EU and Competition category:

“Richard Barker ‘has unrivalled experience and expertise in communicating with the European Commission, and advises in a coherent and thoughtful way’. Barker’s knowledge of agricultural state-aid matters is unmatched. He advised an EU member state on the application of the Basic Payment Scheme.”

Other solicitors with specific mentions include Clare Richards and Elaine Mann in our Corporate and Commercial team, Dermott Thomas for Commercial Litigation, Nicola Furmston in the Family team, Toby Pound, Kerry Addison and Andrew Nicholson for Agriculture, and, of course, our Senior Partner, James Skellorn, for Trust, Tax and Probate.

Of this year’s success, James Skellorn commented: “At Barker Gotelee we place great emphasis on the tailored service we deliver to our clients, whether coming to us with a matter regarding life, land or business. We’re thrilled that the hard work and dedication of specialist solicitors across our firm has, once again, been recognised in the prestigious Legal 500.”
