Legal 500 and Chambers Ranking

Solicitors from Wansbroughs’ insurance litigation and private client teams have been singled out for special recognition of their skills by the Legal 500, the leading guide to law firms and solicitors in the UK for both professionals and clients alike. 

The firm’s insurance litigation team, ranked as a tier three firm by the guide, is headed by partner Rob Hams, also a ranked Lawyer with Chambers, is described as a “very good tactician and case planner” and “a robust negotiator.” He is particularly experienced in defending local authorities and other public bodies against personal injury claims. He frequently advises on stress at work cases. The team also act for local authorities and insurers in relation to a number of matters including public liability claims and inquest work and is described by the guide as providing an “exceptional level of quality and service”. 

Also recognised for their high quality work are the firm’s private client team (tier four) who provide advice regarding Wills, tax, trusts and probate to both local clients and those from London and further afield. 

Team leader and partner, Alan Ciechan is described as being “excellent on trusts and wills, including partnerships”. Fellow partner Anna Wensley Stock is “extremely bright, hard-working and responsive” and Andrew Jenkins is “an exceptionally able and experienced operator who deals with very delicate and intricate farming matters and estates with calmness and authority”. 

David Bousfield, a consultant within the team is described as “one of the county’s most respected personal advisers, particularly to farming families”. 

“Bright and efficient” associate Kathryn Smith Cowap is “one to watch” says Legal 500, while fellow associate Jennifer Vooght is also recommended by the guide. 

The rankings and recognition of particular individuals are the result of detailed analysis of firm submissions, as well as countless interviews with clients and industry peers by the guide’s extremely experienced panel. 

It is a great achievement for a firm to be ranked in the Legal 500 directory and even more so for so many solicitors from Wansbroughs to be listed as leading individuals within their fields and therefore to be classed as Legal 500 recommended solicitors.
