Sheffield solicitors Bell & Buxton once more are very pleased with their multiple recognitions in the latest release of the Legal 500 Guide to the Legal Profession.

The guide is an independent guide, and firms and individuals are included purely on merit.

Bell & Buxton has been recognised by the guide for five consecutive years and this year achieved recognition in four specialist work categories. Four of the firm’s solicitors received personal recommendations for their expertise.

Senior partner Mary Butler and associate Alex Watkinson are identified as key individuals in the newly created ‘contentious probate’ section of the guide; reflecting the firm’s solid reputation and expertise in this niche area. Mary received special mention as being “a fierce and successful negotiator”, while Alex was acclaimed for having “great judgement” and “a real feel for this area”.

Bell & Buxton has long been renowned for its expertise in the area of will and inheritance disputes, although until this year the Legal 500 Guide did not recognise the subject matter as being widely practised outside of London. The Legal 500 stamp of approval places the firm squarely on the map for its expertise in this field.

Alex Ross, partner in the corporate/commercial team, also receives much deserved recognition as his department enjoys continuing involvement in many of Sheffield’s commercial deals.

Jim Conlon, solicitor in the firm’s growing commercial litigation department is recognised for his commercial savviness and solid legal knowledge.

The firm’s wills & probate department is recognised by the guide as being one of the top departments in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Bell & Buxton intends to build on this success and enhance the firm’s reputation across Sheffield and beyond for quality legal advice at an affordable price.
