BRISTOL LAW FIRM EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS IN NATIONAL POLL
Commercial law firm, Beachcroft Wansbroughs, is helping to put Bristol's legal eagles on the map, having achieved top scores in an independent national survey.
Commissioned by Legal Week, the survey states that Beachcroft is systematically 'exceeding expectations', and awards it first place scores for 'service delivery', 'partner involvement', 'responsiveness' and 'added value'. In almost all instances, Beachcroft exceeds not only the industry average, but also client expectations in areas such as 'relationships', 'cost' and 'service delivery'.
Commenting on the strong performance of the firm, Michael Bothamley, senior partner of Beachcroft Wansbroughs in Bristol said: "This is excellent news and further evidence that Bristol is a serious competitor to the capital in terms of professional services.
"We have always said that excellent communication and transport links make the city an excellent base for senior professionals working on national and international business. And many of the heads of our national sector-based teams have opted to move Bristol because of the excellent quality of life it offers, when compared to London and other UK conurbations."
