Legal 500 UK Guide to Solicitors 2020 – Tier 1 Firm in North East for Clinical Negligence!

The Legal 500 UK Guide describes itself as “the leading Guide to Law Firms & Solicitors in UK” . They research firms annually in each area of law and each geographical area and prepare rankings for firms and for the individual solicitors based on their findings. They seek the views of barristers who have experience of the firm and those who work there, and on their website say “These rankings reflect detailed analysis of law firm submissions and thousands of interviews with GCs and private practice lawyers, conducted by our team of experienced researchers…” After performing this in depth research they have released their 2020 Guide and we are thrilled to confirm that once again Armstrong Foulkes LLP has been praised for its expertise in Clinical Negligence.

The firm itself has been ranked as one of only 3 firms within the North of England to be assessed as Tier 1 or the top rated for Claimant Clinical Negligence work We are also the only firm outside of Newcastle in this prestigious Tier 1, described as a “boutique clinical negligence firm Armstrong Foulkes LLP focuses solely on the claimant side. The practice specialises in high-value litigation, as well as handling extensive post-issue litigation”.

We are honoured to read that feedback from those who were interviewed is that:

  • ‘The firm provides a level of expertise and is the standout clinical negligence firm in its geographical area’
  • ‘Armstrong Foulkes is a small specialist, boutique firm focusing on clinical negligence work for claimants and does it extremely well’
