Olliers Solicitors are delighted to announce we have been recommended as a Top Tier firm in the North West for both Crime and Fraud in the 2015 Legal 500, the only North West firm to be listed as Top Tier for both Fraud and Crime.
Top Tier Law Firm – Crime and Fraud
The Legal 500 comments:
“Jointly led by the ‘tactically brilliant’ Richard Holliday and the ‘outstanding’ Matthew Claughton, Olliers is ‘fantastic on defending allegations of serious fraud’.“
The Guide goes on to state “the crime team at Olliers ‘delivers a top-quality service’ and covers a range of serious, high-profile cases.”
Matthew Claughton – Leading Criminal Defence Lawyer
Our Managing Director Matthew Claughton has also been listed as a Leading Individual for both Crime and Fraud in the guide to outstanding lawyers. This comes during a particularly successful year for Matthew having already been voted Partner of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards in March 2015 and having been also shortlisted for Solicitor of the Year at the Law Society’s Excellence Awards to be held in October 2015. Matthew specialises in defending allegations of fraud, sexual offences and serious crime and is also recommended in the editorial of the Guide for both Crime and Fraud.
Two of the firm’s other lawyers have also been specifically recommended in the Guide as Crime Lawyers, these being Richard Holliday and Alex Preston with Alex being praised for her ‘accurate analysis and exemplary client skills’. Richard is also recommended for fraud.
Matthew Claughton, Managing Director of Olliers, commented:
“I am delighted with the recommendations of the Legal 500, both in respect of the firm itself as well as on a personal level. This is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Olliers.”
