Wiltshire-based Goughs Solicitors have been recognised by not one, but two, of the industry’s leading legal guides, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500

For several years running, Goughs Solicitors have been recognised by Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 for the excellence delivered in terms of client care and legal expertise. We reported two weeks ago on the  accolade received from Legal 500, and now further recognition from Chambers & Partners means that Goughs is celebrating once more.

On Goughs Tier 1 ranked family team, which sits them alongside some of the best in the country, not just the southwest, Chambers commented, ‘The team is extremely thorough and client-focused. They are willing to go the extra mile and think outside the box.’

‘Client service and wellbeing are clearly a priority for the team as family and matrimonial matters are particularly sensitive and require careful, level-headed and firm handling.”

Partner & Head of Family, Thomas Boyce, explained, “Chambers’ 200+ researchers provide unique insight into complex areas of law and the service a firm provides. They conduct tens of thousands of interviews a year with in-house counsel and third-party experts, such as barristers and accountants, and crucially with the clients who have used that firm. It is their rigorous independent processes that makes us so incredibly proud to have been recognised by them and ranked as a Tier 1 family department. This recognition is extremely welcomed and I could not be prouder of the team for continuing to deliver at such an exceptionally high level.”

The firm’s Real Estate team have also been recognised, which is a huge achievement for the firm who moved their Real Estate and Corporate offerings to a new modern office just outside Chippenham. This move allowed for the collaboration and knowledge sharing of highly experienced lawyers which was noted by Chambers & Partners, ‘The team is exceptional at grasping complex matters.’

On the team’s second recognition in as many weeks, Partner & Head of Real Estate, Andrew Given, commented, “It is a great testament to the level of hard work and commitment that the Real Estate team have been recognised by such a prestigious organisation. The daily commitment we show our clients has been gratefully rewarded. I am thrilled to be able to share such good news and look forward to growing the team and receiving even more recognition throughout 2023.”

The firm provides legal services for both individuals and businesses including: Divorce and Separation, Child Arrangements, Marital Agreements, Employment Law, Wills, Trusts & Probate, Commercial & Residential Property services and Real Estate and Corporate services.
