Dorset law firm Ellis Jones Solicitors is celebrating after winning recognition in a prestigious annual publication.


Its lawyers and departments have been rated for their excellence in the newly published Chambers UK 2022 guide.


The independent directory is compiled following extensive research and in-depth interviews with thousands of clients, legal practitioners and market sources.


Ellis Jones – with more than 160 staff and 19 Partners – was rated once again for the excellence of its Family and Litigation departments.
Its Family team were praised for having a ‘very open-minded attitude to communication and cohesive way of doing things’.


Partners and Joint heads of Family Deborah Leask and Sean McNally were both rated as Notable Practitioners.


Deborah was praised for being ‘brilliant with clients’ and ‘not afraid to delve into the minutiae’ while Sean was described as having ‘long experience in handling a wide range of family law matters’.


Partner Katie Taft was named as an Up and Coming Family lawyer who ‘approaches things in a calm, rational, and forensic way’ and is able to ‘empathise with and support her clients on a personal level’.


Head of Dispute Resolution Lauren Day and Head of Banking and Finance Litigation Will Fox Bregman were named as key contacts in the Notable Practitioners section in the ranking for Ellis Jones’ Litigation services.


The department was described as offering experience across a range of disputes work, including contractual and fraud claims as well as banking and financial services.


Nigel Smith, Ellis Jones Managing Partner, said: “Winning recognition from a prestigious guide of this kind is to be celebrated.


“It is a powerful independent endorsement of our services and testament to the talents and hard work of our people.


“It is a proud moment for all at Ellis Jones and congratulations must especially go to all of those Partners who were rated for their excellence.”


Ellis Jones Solicitors’ success in the new edition comes hot on the heels of listings in the latest Legal 500 guide.
Ellis Jones is a full-service law firm with offices in Bournemouth, Canford Cliffs (Poole), Ringwood Swanage, and Wimborne plus London.
