Business & Commercial team recognised in Legal 500 UK 2022

Our Business & Commercial department are delighted to have retained their ranking in the latest listings of The Legal 500 UK.

The department, which has been recognised once again in the 2022 rankings for Corporate and Commercial: NorwichIntellectual Property: East Anglia and Media, Entertainment and Sport: East Anglia, sees its head of department, Jamie Arnall, acknowledged as a ‘Next Generation Partner’, with specific recognition also for solicitors Charlotte Darkins, Phillip Hopkins and Doug Frame.

For 33 years The Legal 500 has been annually analysing the capabilities of law firms across the world, including the UK. They assess their strengths in over 150 jurisdictions and produce rankings based upon research, which uses feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide.

In recognition of the level of service the Fosters Business & Commercial team continually provide its clients, including those whom they work with under the firm’s In House model, testimonials referenced by The Legal 500 include:

“Fosters approach is more focused on understanding the requirement, delivering what is needed and adding value – rather than a focus on fees. It feels more of a partnership than a client/solicitor relationship.”

“We feel extremely fortunate to work regularly with both Jamie Arnall and Charlotte Darkins. Both provide an exceptional level of service, regularly going over and above that which could be reasonably expected of them. Their attention to detail and the level of effort they make in ensuring they’re fully across the matter in hand and needs of their client is second to none.”

“Without fail, every enquiry is dealt with both thoroughly and expediently, consistently therefore providing us with an excellent service to meet our every need.”

“The approach from the team is not typical of any legal firm I’ve ever worked with. As far as the service they provide, their legal knowledge as you would expect is outstanding, however they also change their tactics for each and every meeting they’re in – from clear, concise and guiding to passive, listening and strategic, depending on the situation.”

Partner Jamie Arnall, who is himself recognised as “an exceptionally bright, patient and valuable lawyer”, commented on the listings:

“Whilst the rankings themselves are fantastic and truly reflective of the growth and development of our Business & Commercial practice we work hard to deliver, the standout theme we are thrilled to see is the quality of testimonials from our clients for which we are truly grateful.

“Delivering exceptionally high levels of client service drives our team and the work we undertake, and we are delighted to see this received so warmly by our clients. This is evidence of the hard work of every member of our department, all of whom go above and beyond every day to ensure that our clients’ expectations are not only met but exceeded.”
