Bishop & Sewell is pleased to learn that the firm has been recognised for its expertise in this year’s Legal 500, an independent guide to the legal sector, in the following areas:
London: Private client – Family – Tier 4
Bishop & Sewell LLP has ‘very experienced partners with proven expertise in both finance and children cases’. Michael Gillman is ‘extremely conscientious and has impeccable judgement’, and Philip Rutter ‘remains calm when dealing with very difficult clients’.
Eileen Pembridge is ‘committed’, David Hodgson is ‘thorough in his preparation and assesses risk carefully. His ability to control costs is a thing to behold’. Louise Barretto is particularly adept in complex financial matters with an international dimension.
London: Human Resources – Immigration, Human Rights, Appeals and Overstay – Tier 2
Bishop & Sewell LLP focuses on asylum and human rights work, and also handles PBS applications for high-net-worth individuals, as well as public law challenges, and detention and deportation cases.
Head of Immigration Mariam Khaliq acts for individual clients and local authorities on human rights applications, EEA applications, PBS and naturalisation matters, and deportation cases.
Associate Karma Hickman advises on immigration, asylum and citizenship matters, and has a focus on international surrogacy cases and complex partnership applications.
The Legal 500 ranks law firms and lawyers across legal specialisms and geographic regions, identifying the most highly respected legal professionals in their areas of expertise. The guide is published annually in October and is compiled using feedback from clients and peer firms.
Across all our teams, we continue to see our solicitors consistently delivering an excellent and valuable service.
Each of our clients receives legal services tailored to their particular needs and delivered in a practical and highly responsive manner. We pride ourselves on exceeding our clients expectations. We provide advice and assistance of the highest calibre, but which is also accessible and which always keeps in mind commercial realities. This ensures we help our clients – whether individuals or businesses – navigate their legal issues effectively and achieve the very best possible outcomes.
The firm has steadily expanded over the years. As well as serving clients in the local area, London and the South East, we are increasingly instructed by those further afield: nationwide and internationally.
We continue to attract a wide variety of clients from all walks of life, representative of various industries, the financial sector and the professions. Our practice areas are expanding, supporting a growing private and commercial client base.
Now based in Russell Square in Central London, our offices are readily accessible and well-served by public transport and parking. Individuals and families form the backbone of our client base, alongside entrepreneurs, investors, property developers and landlords. Our business clients include private and quoted mid-market companies and financial institutions.
