Legal expertise recognised

Atherton Godfrey has been recognised by The Legal 500, which is one of the most respected legal directories in the world, for the standard of its personal injury and clinical negligence services.
Each year, The Legal 500 analyses the capabilities of law firms through a comprehensive programme of research that includes the opinions of clients, counsel and peers. Law firms and individual lawyers are then ranked on their ability to provide “cutting edge” advice.

In the 2016 edition, which has just been published, Atherton Godfrey is ranked as a Tier 2 Firm in Yorkshire and the Humber and has the accolade of being the only law firm in and around Doncaster to be recognised. (There are 5 tiers in personal injury and 6 tiers in clinical negligence).  
Personal recommendations have also been received for Diane Parker, head of personal injury and Christopher Noble, head of clinical negligence. Whilst John McQuater, head of litigation, which covers the firm’s clinical negligence, personal injury and employment law services, is recommended and is also ranked as an elite lawyer in The Legal 500 Leading Lawyers list.

Atherton Godfrey is one of only a few firms in the region to be able to offer legal aid for birth injuries.

The Legal 500 has been providing rankings for 28 years and is used by counsel, the public and peers who want to find a recommended expert.
