The Legal 500 has been the leading ranking publication for law firms in the UK, and indeed worldwide, for over 30 odd years. It carries out independent and detailed analysis of firms’ submissions and conducts thousands of interviews each year drilling down on the capabilities of law firms worldwide.  Its comprehensive research programme is updated every year to bring the most up to date insights to the legal global market. 

Its aim is to assist in-house lawyers, legal teams and clients to find the right advisors through law firm and solicitors rankings.   The rankings are based on a team of researchers bringing together feedback from thousands of in-house peers, general counsel, clients, submissions from law firms and months of interviews to decide which firms have unrivalled experience in the legal market. 

We are very proud that our dispute and resolution team here at Aston Bond has been ranked in the Legal 500 this year.  Our ranking means we have been considered as: 

  1. Having a very strong technical ability available for the most complex work
  2. Historical track record on top cases
  3. Reputation for handling complex, innovation deals
  4. Capacity for the biggest transaction cases 

Our listing in the Legal 500 includes the following;

Aston Bond is a new entrant into the boutique commercial litigation category, boosted by the recent acquisition of James Dyche. James Dyche is a very capable and dedicated lawyer with strong client handling skills and a commercially realistic approach.

Stephen Puri leads the team at Aston Bond, where the department handles the spectrum of commercial disputes, with sector expertise in real estate, insolvency, and IP. James Dyche joined the team from Greenwoods Legal in September 2021 and now heads up the Litigation team together with Puri. In addition to the firm’s areas of expertise he handles contentious probates. 

Our team have work extremely hard and always have our clients at the forefront of their minds.  We therefore believe this is a fitting accolade to the team’s hard work and dedication.   We also take this opportunity to thank all those who provided testimonials for us.
