Goughs celebrates latest national accreditation

By Nick Batten on 12 November, 2020

The successful and growing Family Team at Wiltshire-based Goughs Solicitors has been recognised as a ‘Band 1’ department by the prestigious Chambers and Partners legal directory.

Chambers and Partners is an independent research company delivering detailed rankings and insight into the world’s leading lawyers. It conducts tens of thousands of interviews a year with in-house counsel and third-party experts, such as barristers and accountants, as well as clients, to deliver detailed insight into providers of legal services. For Goughs to have been ranked as one of the best with a Band 1 rating is a huge achievement.

The success comes just weeks after it was ranked as a leading law firm for the third year running by the other leading directory Legal 500.

Richard Bebb, Partner and Family Lawyer, has been individually ranked by Chambers which stated that he “is very bright and spots the issue very quickly.” The review added, “He is very calm and reassuring to clients and has a good knowledge of the law.”

One of only a very small handful of Wiltshire-based lawyers to have achieved Band 1 status, Richard said, “At Goughs we take huge pride in our client care. I am tremendously proud of the family team for having been credited as a top firm for family and matrimonial matters. To be individually ranked is a great honour. Developing a rapport with my clients and helping them achieve their goals is what makes me tick as a lawyer.”

Partner, Ross Phillips, was also among those to be individually recognised by the Chambers. The review stated that he “Communicates well and is thorough,” adding that he frequently assists with private children cases, pre-marital agreements and financial disputes.

Ross said, “Being noted on my communication with clients and thoroughness in the work I carry out is extremely pleasing. I pride myself on building meaningful and productive relationships with clients to ensure the best possible outcomes for them. The ‘Band 1’ rating for the family team at Goughs is a huge testament to the dedication and hard work of such a thriving team.”
