Portsmouth’s leading legal practice Verisona Law has announced new appointments to both commercial and private client areas of the firm.
Head of the abuse team at Verisona Law and specialist Solicitor, Charles Derham, recently featured in the Portsmouth News in light of the revelations that have rocked the Football world.
The Wills, Trusts & Probate Team at Verisona Law is delighted to have received confirmation that it raised £365 in aid of The Rowans Hospice during the organisation’s ‘Make-a-Will Fortnight’ earlier in the year.
A specialist team of lawyers in Portsmouth’s most dynamic commercial practice is celebrating recognition of its achievements in the listings of one of the legal profession’s most prestigious industry guides.
The Insolvency & Business Turnaround Team at Verisona Law is taking great pride in being featured in the latest edition of the annual Chambers Guide for its work in matters of contentious and personal insolvency, directors' disqualification and assisting businesses in financial trouble.
The guide, which offers in-depth analysis of the legal market across 50 cities and counties throughout the UK and compares firms within regions, noted the team’s exceptional feedback and testimonials from clients including Grant Thornton, BDO, and Portland, and recent high profile achievements such as successfully defending the directors of a failed company against a claim brought against them by liquidators for £1.1 million.
‘This is the first time the team has been listed in the Chambers Guide, which is a sign of how far we’ve come in the last twelve months,’ says Director Nick Oliver who leads a team of four directors, five qualified lawyers and support staff. ‘Everyone has worked extremely hard on some very complex cases which has not only paid off with successful negotiations and court proceedings, but helped build our reputation and attract interest from new clients.’
Nick himself has retained his personal entry in the guide, being described as ‘a seasoned practitioner with very good technical knowledge of insolvency legislation’ and ‘knowledgeable and meticulous.’
His father, David Oliver, a consultant at Verisona Law and recent winner of the Johnston Press Southern Business Awards’ Regional Lifetime Achievement of the Year, also remains listed the region’s sole ‘Senior Statesman’ in the insolvency profession, cited as ‘immensely experienced and trusted by those who know him’ and ‘is the go-to person on the south coast.’
‘The Insolvency and Business Turnaround Team has proved itself to be an ever-growing force to be reckoned with,’ says Chairman and Head of Commercial at Verisona Law, Michael Dyer. ‘We are very proud to have such a dynamic group of professionals at the firm and that their success has led to the firm’s recognition in the guide.’
It was a night that saw businesses from across the South Coast gather to congratulate and listen to the achievements of one of the region’s most prolific and successful lawyers, David Oliver.
Portsmouth’s leading legal practice has announced a major shakeup of its management structure with new roles and responsibilities arising from within the firm’s Directorship.
Verisona Law was delighted to be part of The London Legal Support Trust's 'Legal Walk' in Chichester this month to raise money for the South and West Sussex Citizens Advice Bureau.
A team from the firm joined fellow professionals from legal firms across the region and took to the streets of Chichester, completing a course around the iconic cathedral, into rural surrounds and finishing with well-deserved refreshment at The Fountain pub in the city centre’s Southgate.
‘With Legal Aid becoming more and more difficult to access, the CAB provides legal services to 30,000 of the poorest and most vulnerable people in our area each year,’ explains Robert Small, Director and Head of Dispute Resolution at Verisona Law who was part of the team for the charity walk. ‘Obviously this is a cause close to our professional hearts and we were delighted to the event raised over £2,000 in sponsorship of those who took part.’
Legal experts at Verisona Law are congratulating the team behind growing music brand, Victorious Festival, on another tremendously successful event in the heart of Portsmouth.
