Local Sudbury business, Holmes and Hills Solicitors in North Street has been ranked as one of the best law firms in the country for advice on Planning Law. For the third consecutive year the local business has been ranked in the top 50 solicitors in the UK for Planning Law advice by Planning Magazine’s ‘Law Survey 2016’ – a leading industry (…) magazine for planning professionals. In fact, the firm has moved up from 45th to 33rd in the country in the 2016 survey which was released at the end of March.
The news highlights just one example of a successful and nationally recognised business operating from the heart of Sudbury.
Commenting on the news, David Whipps, Senior Partner in the firm’s Planning & Development Team, said:
“We are very pleased to have once again been recognised nationally for our Planning Law advice services alongside some of the UK’s largest law firms. It is a testament to the experience or our team and the results they achieve for the firm’s clients.”
Holmes & Hills is one of only two firms of solicitors in Suffolk to be identified by the survey which ranks the firm among leading city, national and international law firms. It is the only firm within Essex to be mentioned in the list,
The recognition reflects the level of knowledge and expertise within the firm’s Planning and Development team and follows recent recognition from both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 – two independent directories of the UK’s leading law firms – both of which also ranked Holmes and Hills as a leading firm for Planning Law advice in the region.
David Whipps was also recognised by Chambers & Partners as the leading Planning Law solicitor in Essex, a testament to his expertise and many years of experience in the field.
Holmes and Hills provides legal advice to individuals, businesses and local authorities across Suffolk and Essex, from its five offices. The business, which opened the doors to its fifth office in Sudbury back in February 2014, continues to go from strength to strength and is currently hiring for a number of legal positions.
