Chambers & Partners update

Three is the magic number


Chambers 2022 has been released and we are super excited to announce that we have again been ranked!

Last year the firm was ranked in Band 1 of Chambers and Partners in the top tier of legal firms in the whole of Yorkshire and the North East, with Martin Holdsworth our Founder being ranked as a Band 1 individual.

Founding director of the firm Martin Holdsworth “is an outstanding contentious private client solicitor. He is also friendly, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. He is our main ‘go-to’ for contentious private client matters,” says a source.

This year we have held these two top spots which is just incredible, and an absolute credit to our dedicated team of contentious probate specialists.

A source adds Their ability to deal with complex matters is second to none. They are clearly passionate about their specialism, but have an uncanny knack of getting to the crux of the matter with simplicity.”


Partner goals

Not only did we hold on to these two, but Richard Thomas one of our Partners has bagged us a third by winning the ‘Up and Coming’ award! Congratulations to Richard.

“Richard is technically strong, helpful, attentive and a pleasure to work with,” says a commentator. 

“In his specialist field, he is a real up-and-coming star,” adds a source.


Martin Holdsworth comments on the news: “Honoured to be recognised by Chambers and Partners once again, and immensely proud of our firm for holding one of the top spots. We wouldn’t be here today without the rest of the team and their hard work & dedication. I also want to congratulate Richard who has received the ‘up and coming’ award, completely deserved. I have no doubt that our newly opened Manchester and Bristol offices will be recognised very soon too!”


Growth and development

It goes without saying that we are absolutely thrilled to of received these accolades, and we continue to grow, develop and improve where we can to make sure we provide and adapt to the needs of our clients.

Our development continues in the implementation of our IDR Network, a free referral scheme to support all those working in the wills and probate sector, along with our online training resource the IDRU, a ‘university style online platform designed to train our team of professionals and those in the sector.
