  • Overview

    We are delighted that Partners Simon Brown and Gilbert Green have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the forth edition of Best Lawyers in the United Kingdom ®.

    Simon Brown has been included for his conscientious work for ‘Trusts & Personal Tax Law’ and Gilbert Green has been included for his meticulous practice in ‘Real Estate Law’. Gilbert, along with Simon helped Thomson Snell & Passmore establish leading practices in both of these areas and welcome the good news along with their top tier rankings in both Chambers UK and The Legal 500 directories as Leading Individuals.

    Inclusion in Best Lawyers ® is based entirely on peer-review. The methodology is designed to capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical and legal practice area. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Our belief has always been that the quality of a peer-review survey is directly related to the quality of its voting pool.

    We would like to thank to all that nominated and provided feedback for them.
