Times 2020 Wilkin Chapman


Wilkin Chapman solicitors has been officially recognised as one of the country’s leading law firms with a first appearance in the lauded Times Best Law Firms 2020, ranking it alongside other major and mid-City firms of international repute.

As the only Corporate/Commercial team commended in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire to appear in the Best Law Firm 2020 on the strength of its Corporate and Commercial work, it is a major reflection of the strides Wilkin Chapman has made in recent years and the very high level of advice offered by its fee earners. In the last 24 months alone, the Corporate team has advised on deals worth more than £400 million.

Complied by The Times and The Sunday Times, organisations only appear if they have been commended by peers in more than 26 categories of law.

With its headquarters in Grimsby, Wilkin Chapman, the region’s largest law firm, has offices in Lincoln, Beverley, Louth, Horncastle and Alford. Already this autumn it has retained its position as 106 in the Top 200 Law firms as published by The Lawyer while also receiving heavy praise in the annual Legal 500 and The Chambers – two publications that use extensive analysis to rank organisations.

Partner and head of Corporate and Commercial at the Grimsby office, Ian Sherburn said: “I am delighted that Wilkin Chapman LLP has been recognised as one of the Best Law Firms 2020, with specific commendation for Company and Commercial work. This demonstrates the outstanding advice being offered by the Corporate and Commercial team, with significant support from our Employment, Commercial Property and Dispute Resolution teams. It is particularly gratifying, as the Corporate team has advised on deals worth in excess of £400 million in the last two years and is the leading team in the region for high level Corporate mergers and acquisitions advice.”
