After making its debut in the listings of one of the legal profession’s most prestigious industry guides in 2016, the award-winning insolvency team at Verisona Law has been recognised again for a busy and prosperous twelve months with inclusion in this year’s edition.
The Insolvency & Business Turnaround Team at Verisona Law was delighted to be included in the Chambers Guide for a second year. Cited for its work in contentious insolvency and ‘notable experience in personal insolvency, directors' disqualification and matters involving fraud’, the team has been applauded for its achievements on behalf of individuals, corporate groups and its work for insolvency practitioners. This comes in addition to the team’s recent recognition in the Legal 500, having gone from strength to strength by being placed in the guide’s Band 2 for insolvency in the South East.
Chambers guide, which offers in-depth analysis of the legal market across throughout the UK and compares firms within regions, noted the team’s exceptional feedback and testimonials from clients including Investec Bank, RSM and BDO.
One market source highlighted the team’s ‘ability to analyse a situation very quickly and to decide either on a cost-effective way forward, or to provide straight, prompt and pragmatic advice if a matter has low merits’, while another said ‘they have great knowledge and give sound advice.’
‘To have maintained our position as one of the top firms in the south for the work we do is both satisfying and invigorating,’ says Director Nick Oliver who leads a team of five qualified lawyers and support staff. ‘We have had a busy year with some high profile cases and big wins, but this doesn’t come without a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication to client service from every member of the team.’
Nick, himself, has retained his personal ranking in the guide, being described as ‘providing innovative solutions to complex issues’, and referred to by one client as ‘one of the most technically adept insolvency practitioners I have ever worked with’. His father, David Oliver, who is a consultant at Verisona Law also remains listed the region’s sole ‘Senior Statesman’ in the insolvency profession for his ‘unsurpassed knowledge and vast experience of insolvency matters.’
‘The Insolvency and Business Turnaround Team has continued to deveop a formidable national reputation over the last 12 months,’ says Chairman and Head of Business Law at Verisona Law, Michael Dyer. ‘We hope that they are as proud of themselves as we are of their contribution to the firm.’
