The Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Department of the Private Legal Services sector at Anthony Collins Solicitors have once again been applauded by the Legal 500 this year.
Whilst the full set of results are awaited and will be published later this year, Partner and Head of the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Department, Rankeshwar Batta, has been listed into the Legal 500 “Hall of Fame” for both his personal injury and clinical negligence work in the West Midlands. He is one of only two elite lawyers to be listed in this way for clinical negligence and the only elite lawyer to be listed in this way for personal injury within the West Midlands.
The Legal 500 is the independent guide to the nation’s best lawyers in the UK, and it is a testament to the work that he and his team do for their injured clients. The Legal 500 states that the listing in the Hall of Fame highlights those individuals who receive constant praise by their clients, peers, opponents and others in the industry for continued excellence and who are considered to be at the pinnacle of their profession. Anthony Collins Solicitors are therefore extremely proud of Rankeshwar’s achievement in the launch of the Hall of Fame in the UK.
Rankeshwar Batta said:
“It is always nice to be recognised in this way, but for me, this highlights the consistent and exceptional work of my team as a whole and the private legal services offering at my firm. We remain fully committed to providing an excellent all-round client service for individuals (some of whom are the most vulnerable in society) and this listing reflects all that we have achieved to date in that regard. We aim always to continue to improve our service in the ever-changing legal landscape affecting our work.”
