Listed in the top 200 law firms in The Times Best Law Firms 2020
And receives ‘extraordinary’ performance in annual Lexcel accreditation
Rayden Solicitors has once again been recognised as one of the leading family law firms in the country, having retained its listing in The Times Best Law Firms 2020.
The Times report, which is based upon independent research, features an annual list of the best 200 law firms nationwide. Over 3,000 solicitors took part in the survey voting independently for their competitors.
The research noted that the firm ‘has gained an increasing profile both in London and nationally for its impressive levels of client care’. In particular Rayden Solicitors are commended for their ‘expert knowledge of some of the most sensitive areas of the law in relation to children, such as surrogacy law, step-parent adoption and abduction. Not only is the firm commended for being one of the best family law firms in the country, providing advice and representation on all aspects of family law, including divorce, domestic abuse, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, tax and trusts, but is also recognised for experience in handling family situations with an international dimension, including international divorce law. The Times specifically references Senior Associate Claire Wood, based in the St Albans office, who has built up an extensive practice over ten years with legal contacts throughout France, Belgium and Switzerland.
And to add to the good news the firm has also just received an outstanding performance rating in the annual Lexcel accreditation review. The Lexcel assessor analyses and reviews all elements of the business to determine that best practice and compliance with the highest standards of performance are achieved. In the assessor’s words Rayden Solicitors has ‘performed extraordinarily’ – this is huge praise for all the employees of the business.
Senior Partner, Katherine Rayden says “We are all absolutely thrilled with both these pieces of good news. To be recognised once again in The Times’ prestigious list is a wonderful endorsement, and cements our reputation as a family law boutique with the capability to reach beyond our regional location in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire to the national and international market. It’s been another fantastic year for the business and we all feel a great deal of pride in our achievements. Today’s news from both The Times and our industry accreditation standard from Lexcel, is testament to all the hard work undertaken by the whole firm. Our team is hugely committed to providing exceptional quality work and adhering to the highest possible standards both in the law and, equally importantly, in the service and care that we provide for our clients.”
