McCormicks Wins Praise in Top Legal Guide
McCormicks Solicitors of Harrogate has been described as “unique” in one testimonial in the newly-published Legal 500, the leading guide to the legal profession.
The guide’s quote from a client states: “The practice is unique in that they make you feel like the most important client, nothing is too much trouble and you never need to chase or wait longer than is expected.” It is just one of many testimonials that highlight the practice’s skill and service in the 19 areas of law for which it is recommended.
Senior Partner, Peter McCormick OBE, is once again listed in the elite “Leading Lawyers” section which highlights outstanding lawyers nationwide. Both Peter and consultant Neil Goodrum are also in the Hall of Fame for London, with Peter highlighted for Sport and Neil for Mediators. Partner Phil Edmondson wins a place in the Next Generation Partners list for Sport.
Peter is also listed as a Leading Individual for Sport in Yorkshire and Humber, while Philip Edmondson is a Leading Individual for Sport in London.
Solicitors at the firm have won 43 individual recommendations, up two from last year, while the firm as a whole is recommended for 19 areas of law, including Reputation Management (London), which is also new for 2021. The other areas are: Corporate and Commercial; EU and Competition; Crime: Fraud; Crime: General; Dispute Resolution/Commercial Litigation; Finance/Insolvency and Corporate Recovery, Agriculture and Estates; Charities and Not-For-Profit; Contentious Trusts and Probate; Family; Private Client: Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate; Commercial Property; Property Litigation; IT and Telecoms; and Sport; along with London rankings for Dispute Resolution: Mediators; Professional Discipline and Sport to add to the new Reputation Management listing.

Peter McCormick said: “The UK Legal 500 bases much of its rankings research on the views of clients and we are delighted that we have been able to continue to provide such a high level of service during the past year with all its challenges of working from home and being unable to meet in person. This underlines our strength as a team!”
