SLATER HEELIS has once again been acknowledged by the legal community as one of the top law firms in the North West, with 16 of its solicitors listed in the Legal 500 rankings for 2023.

The Legal 500 is the most comprehensive legal directory in the UK. It lists and ranks solicitors and law firms across the nation based on both their skills and reviews from peers, clients, and other contacts who have been involved in projects.

For the first time, Slater Heelis was named as a Firm to Watch for the work of its Crime team, in acknowledgement of the team’s recent achievements on a number of high-profile cases. This comes at a perfect time after the Crime team’s victory at the Manchester Legal Awards in June.

Simon Wallwork, Head of Corporate and Commercial, and Mark Heptinstall, Head of Family, both celebrate their fifth consecutive year as Leading Individuals, with Ken Salmon, Consultant Solicitor in Construction and Engineering, achieving his fourth consecutive Leading Individual recognition.Also receiving special recognition for a fourth consecutive year is Patricia Robinson, who has been named Next Generation Partner in recognition of her outstanding work as a Partner in the Family team.

John Gorner, Consultant Solicitor for Dispute Resolution, and Vicki McLynn, Partner for Family, have been ranked in the Legal 500 2023 for Slater Heelis, having both joined the firm in 2021 with many years of experience. Their achievements highlight the firm’s success in its recent staff acquisitions.

Singular commendations across numerous practice areas also demonstrated the firm’s broad range of expertise.

The Dispute Resolution team was praised for having three members recognised on the list, with Lauren Adams being nominated for the first time.

Chris Bishop, Managing Partner of Slater Heelis, says:

“We are extremely proud of each person who has been acknowledged in the Legal 500, as well as of our entire team, which works tirelessly every day to support the fantastic work we do for our clients, one another, and the community. These awards demonstrate the abundance of legal talent in our firm – of which I am very proud.”
