The Times Best 200 Law Firms 2021

We are delighted to announce that Atherton Godfrey is featured in The Times Best 200 UK Law Firms guide 2021.

Atherton Godfrey is the only South Yorkshire based law firm to be included in the guide and is listed alongside multi-national law firms with offices in the USA and elsewhere.

Senior Partner, Don Bird commented: “We are absolutely delighted. Finding ourselves on a list featuring some of the most prestigious names in the legal sector is no mean feat. “

“This is the third annual list and the third time Atherton Godfrey has been featured; we are naturally very proud of the achievement and thank everyone for their recommendations.”

The Times guide is compiled in conjunction with Statista, an international market research firm.  Researchers approached solicitors and barristers throughout the UK and asked them to recommend the best law firms. The result produced a complete list of law firms most highly regarded by lawyers themselves.

Craig Tregurtha, group managing editor of the Times Newspapers, commented: “The listed firms have distinguished themselves from the competition in an increasingly competitive legal marketplace, an achievement not made easier by having to work under the constraints of Covid-19.”

Atherton Godfrey was established in April 1979 as a high street practice serving the local community. Over the years specialist teams have been created to meet demand. While the firm has been able to retain the high street character and personal service valued by many, it now services clients throughout the UK, including property developers and those referred by other legal practices.

The firm employs over 120 people, including legal specialists and support staff. It is one of only a handful of firms locally to be able to offer legal aid for birth injury claims.
