IBB Solicitors wins Legal 500 Regional Real Estate Firm of the Year award 2015

IBB Solicitors has won a major accolade in being named as the country’s best regional Real Estate practice of the year by Legal 500, the leading independent guide to the legal profession.

This is a significant award for IBB and recognises the quality and expertise of the firm’s Real Estate practice and the service it offers to clients.

IBB saw off stiff competition to win the award. One law firm in each region is shortlisted for their outstanding contribution to a particular area of law, including the Real Estate arena. These are selected following many months of thorough research for the annual rankings. The overall winner is then crowned the national champion.

Legal 500’s UK editor, John Read, said: “Legal 500’s awards are different to others in the sector, in that they are awarded to the firms who have most impressed the research team for The Legal 500 rankings. Legal 500 conducts interviews to pinpoint the most capable, expert teams operating at the top of their sectors. Our researchers spoke to clients who praised IBB’s real estate group for being “excellent in all respects”. “

Partners in the group were singled out as:

  • being ‘a first-rate commercial property lawyer’ (Juliusz Wodzianski);
  • having ‘vast knowledge and experience’ (Susan Mawson);
  • ‘personable, professional’ team head Paul Brampton ‘inspires confidence’;
  • while the property litigation team ‘can compete with any Magic Circle firm in this area’, with Andrew Olins cited as ‘a fearsome litigator’ and Jon Mowbray ‘excellent at devising commercial solutions’

In recent years, IBB’s Real Estate group has enjoyed strong growth across commercial and residential development, construction, planning, real estate finance, and property litigation. The team advises on a diverse range of matters and understands the wide range of challenges faced by property developers, investors, occupiers and lenders. Clients cite the group’s responsiveness and how “they will work to make things happen.”

Bill Bidder, Partner and Head of the Real Estate group, commented:

“The Legal 500 UK 2015 regional firm of the year award is a fantastic reflection of the high esteem in which IBB’s Real Estate group is held by peers and clients alike. Our large and growing group is thrilled that our dedication and expertise has been recognised by such a distinguished legal directory. It is a huge honour and we continue to put our clients’ best interests at the heart of everything we do.”

Steven Booth, Managing Partner at IBB Solicitors, said of the accolade:

“We are delighted that our exceptional Real Estate group has achieved this award, in recognition of the breadth and complexity of the work they advise on, and the quality of advice and client service they provide. We continue to strive for excellent client service and to cement our reputation in the market place. This award recognises that commitment.”
