Bedell Cristin has secured impressive rankings in the latest Chambers and Partners UK Guide for 2024 with 18 lawyers included in the individual ratings.
These successes follow on from the excellent results achieved in the 2024 Legal 500 UK rankings earlier this month.
The firm has maintained their ranking status for its teams in the Channel Islands led by Jersey’s Dispute Resolution team which once again maintained its Band-1 position, while among the individual lawyer rankings, the firm earned four promotions and four new entrants across the teams in Guernsey and Jersey.
Amongst the individual rankings, six Dispute Resolution lawyers from both Jersey and Guernsey were recognised including promotion to Band-1 for Partner, Edward Drummond in Jersey.
Meanwhile, two lawyers from Jersey’s Property team, Partner, Jeff O’Boyle, who was promoted to Band-2 and Senior Associate, Hannah Robinson, ranked for the first time as a ‘Star Associate’, illustrated the growing strength of the firm’s Property Practice.
