Rahman Ravelli Solicitors has been ranked as one of the UK’s top firms for corporate fraud and financial crime in an authoritative legal guide.
Its founder Aziz Rahman has been ranked as a star individual and rated as one of the very best in the UK.
The 2017 edition of The Chambers and Partners UK Guide has given Rahman Ravelli top ranking for business crime and singles out Mr Rahman for special mention.
Chambers says Mr Rahman is “a legendary defender’’ and “an extremely impressive individual’’. Only one other solicitor in the UK receives such a ranking in the Guide.
The Guide praises Rahman Ravelli’s “diligent and effective defence’’ and adds “They get the right people for the right job and fight very hard.’’ It also commends the work of two of Rahman Ravelli’s Senior Associate Lawyers, Nicola Sharp and London-based Neil Williams and praises the quality of the work done by all of the firm’s award-winning staff.
The Guide also notes the scale and complexity of Rahman Ravelli’s work; which includes some of the largest and most high-profile business cases of the past year, including a major Forex investigation.
Chambers is the culmination of thousands of in-depth interviews by the largest research team of its kind. The Guide is trusted globally to objectively rank the world’s best lawyers and law firms.
Rahman Ravelli has received rankings in The Chambers and Partners UK Guide every year this decade. This latest success comes just weeks after the international legal guide, The Legal 500, also gave Rahman Ravelli top ranking. The firm has also won three awards in the last three months.
The firm, which is based in Halifax, also has offices in London and Midlands. It is recognised as a leading firm in the fields of business crime, including serious fraud and commercial fraud, regulatory matters, commercial litigation and serious crime. Its Corporate Fraud Department has recently undergone rapid expansion to meet increased demand from clients.
Aziz Rahman said:
“Our high-quality work has been recognised and the excellence of our staff has been commended."
“This year has been hugely successful in terms of Rahman Ravelli receiving praise and awards. That says a lot about the quality and dedication of everyone at Rahman Ravelli and their ability to do the very best for clients.’’
