Devon law firm adds another partner to its Legal 500 rankings

Devon law firm, Tozers Solicitors LLP, has again been recognised as one of the South West’s top performing firms of solicitors in the Legal 500. The Legal 500 has been published for over twenty years and the 2013 edition has just been published, providing the most comprehensive and worldwide coverage currently available on legal service providers. It is widely regarded as offering the definitive judgement of law firms’ capabilities.

Last year six of Tozers’ partners were named in the Legal 500 and this year a seventh partner has been added to the rankings.

Tozers has been recognised for its employment work; its family law; social housing; charities and clinical negligence expertise. Speaking about Tozers’ performance in the 2013 Legal 500, Peter Edwards – managing partner – said: “We are delighted that Stephen Burtchaell has been recognised for the first time by Legal 500 for his excellent work as a commercial property expert for housing associations. We are very pleased to have five different departments of our firm acknowledged by the Legal 500. It is gratifying to see that the hard work and success rates of our employment, social housing, family, charity and clinical negligence lawyers have been reflected in the comments just published in this year’s Legal 500.”

2013 Legal 500 states: “Tozers LLP’s Exeter-based team has handled tribunal claims and restructurings for a number of housing associations. Paul Kelly is a key contact.”

“Tozers LLP handles high-value clinical negligence claims with particular strength in Erb’s palsy cases, and niche prison and cosmetic surgery practices.”

“Tozers LLP’s head of charities, Richard King, ‘provides expert and insightful advice, and is an acknowledged expert in the charity law field”.”

“Collaborative practitioner Tracy Lambert leads Tozers LLP’s family team and has built up the firm’s high-net-worth matrimonial practice. Tony Wood leads its specialist publicly funded practice from Newton Abbot.”

At Tozers LLP, commercial property partner Stephen Burtchaell specialises in acting for housing associations, and Simon Sanger-Anderson handles employment-related issues.”

Tozers has offices in Exeter, Teignmouth and Newton Abbot.
