Goodman Derrick identified as a top ten firm in The Legal 500's Client Service Awards

June 26, 2019

Goodman Derrick has been recognised by The Legal 500 as one of the top ten firms in the UK for their client service. The recognition follows one the most comprehensive surveys of law firm clients ever undertaken, with thousands of clients across the country providing feedback to rate firms on a range of criteria including pricing and billing practices, sector knowledge, consistency of service and response times.


Goodman Derrick is one of only ten firms recognised in the "UK All Firms" category and is also rated among the top five firms in the "UK Mid-Size" category.

Georgina Stanley, UK Editor, The Legal 500:

"At a time when the client is increasingly king, the results provide a clear indication of the firms setting the pace in the eyes of those using their services."

Simon Catt, Senior Partner, Goodman Derrick:

"We have always sought to maintain our clients' trust by providing a service that is completely focussed on their objectives. Having the best lawyers available is crucial, and our people have all had exceptional legal training. They also have to be commercially astute and be excellent communicators and team players, a different skill set providing a different service delivery model to the bigger firms. I'm delighted that The Legal 500's client research has recognised our approach and the hard work that our teams put in every day to help get our clients to where they want to be."
