A variety of niche commercial services offered by leading Portsmouth legal firm, Verisona Law, has been recognised in the 29th edition of one of the largest and most prestigious independent legal guides, The Legal 500.
The firm’s award-winning Insolvency and Business Turnaround department has been featured as one of the go-to places for corporate recovery and insolvency advice, the team that supported the saving of Portsmouth Football Club continues to be recognised for its work in Sports Law, and expertise in Marine Law has won acclaim in the guide’s transport section for shipping.
Over 250,000 organisations are surveyed and interviewed globally each year by The Legal 500 series, focusing on the strength in depth of legal teams for a robust evaluation that reflects the needs of corporate counsel.
‘This is a particularly exciting result for Insolvency and Business Turnaround,’ says Director Nick Oliver who leads the team and attracts praise in a personal profile within the guide for his ‘terrier-like tenacity’ and ‘encyclopedic knowledge of insolvency legislation’.
‘We’ve been mentioned in the guide for the past few years, but this time, mainly as a result of client feedback, we have moved right up the rankings and are now recognised as one of the top teams nationally. We have achieved some high profile successes in the past twelve months, expanded considerably and were able to put forward an impressive client list for scrutiny and interview, so we are all really proud of this result.’
Also recognised in The Legal 500, was Director Tim Reynolds for his work advising internationally based high-net-worth clients on the full range of contentious and non-contentious yacht and marine issues.
‘We are delighted to have received more coverage in the South East section of The Legal 500 than ever before,’ says Mike Dyer, Chairman and Head of Business Law. ‘It is a sign of the increasing success and influence of our commercial services that has resulted from a lot of hard work.’
