We are very proud and extremely pleased to announce that Waterfront Solicitors has been named in the latest edition of The Legal 500 – the “Clients Guide to the best Law firms”. We are particularly delighted to have received recognition in both the IT and telecoms andIntellectual Property categories. Partners Carole Hailey, Piers Strickland and Matthew Harris were each mentioned by name. In the IT and telecoms sector, Carole’s in-depth understanding of the IT industry and loyal client following was noted; whilst Matthew and Piers were recommended for their provision of clear, timely advice with specific expertise. In the Intellectual Property category, Matthew and Piers were noted for their pragmatic approach and the provision of valuable advice succinctly and efficiently. This is the first time that Waterfront Solicitors has appeared in The Legal 500, which determines entries solely by client recommendation, a fact that makes the accolade particularly welcome. It is a reflection of the period of exciting growth and success that the firm is currently experiencing, which will be further enhanced when we move into larger offices at the end of October. We would sincerely like to thank all of our clients for their on-going support and to anyone who isn’t yet a client; we hope this news might prompt you to give us a call.
