Legal experts at FBC Manby Bowdler Wolverhampton are celebrating after being recognised in the UK’s top independent guide to law firms for their professional work and exceptional service to clients.

The firm’s commercial litigation team was ranked in the “top tier” of the annual Legal 500 publication and 13 of the branch’s solicitors were also individually recognised for their exceptional contributions.

The Legal 500 guide highlighted FBC Manby Bowdler’s commercial litigation team’s “particular expertise” and shared glowing testimonials about the “honest and clear advice” clients received, the “professional set up” and “bright solicitors” who work there.

For the second year in succession, commercial litigation specialist Guy Birkett, was picked out as a Leading Individual in his sector, with his award-winning colleague, Charlotte Clode ranked as one of the up-and-coming Next Generation partners.

Kim Mears, from FBC Manby Bowdler’s contentious trusts and probate team, was recognised in the Guide as a Rising Star in the industry. Angie Manley, from the same team, was also noted as a key lawyer.

Other successes included the personal injury and clinical negligence team, who moved up a tier compared to 2021 thanks to their commitment to “delivering a high-end product for their clients and getting great results”. The team’s practice head Tim Gray was given a mention in the Guide, along with key lawyers Susan Todhunter and Michael Portman-Hann.

The personal trusts, tax and probate department were a new entry into the Guide for 2022, and there are high hopes that they can go one tier higher next year. Practice head Kim Carr and key lawyers Michelle Monnes-Thomas and Christina Polychronakis were given a special mention for their work.

And finally, David Grove, who heads up the commercial property team, Emma Northall, from the debt recovery division and James Sage, corporate and commercial, were each recognised for their exceptional work and dedication to clients.

Managing director Neil Lloyd said: “I am so proud of the team and their achievements – probably more so this year than ever before. The pandemic and numerous lockdowns have made it very challenging to deliver the high levels of service we pride ourselves on but the findings of the independent Legal 500 Guide show that we’ve managed to maintain our standards – and in some cases upped our game - and we are delighted to have earned our place as trusted advisors to so many clients across different sectors.”

FBC Manby Bowdler, which has offices across the West Midlands and Shropshire, also received recommendations for its work in family law, agriculture and rural estates, corporate and commercial, debt recovery, insolvency and corporate recovery, contentious trusts and probate, commercial property and planning.
