YORKSHIRE-BASED fraud and business crime solicitors Rahman Ravelli have again been highlighted in the world's most prestigious legal directory.
The firm, which has its head office in Halifax and a base in the City of London, is marked out by the authors of “The Legal 500” as one of the best for handling national and international fraud and corruption cases.
This year's edition of the legal guide describes the Rahman Ravelli legal team as “dependable, committed and effective'' and hails company founder Aziz Rahman as a “strategic thinker”.
“The Legal 500” gives the most comprehensive coverage and rating of legal firms in more than 100 countries. In its latest edition, it also notes Rahman Ravelli's expertise in mortgage, VAT and boiler room fraud cases and highlights the company's work on a $2.2 billion dollar bribery case.
Rahman Ravelli's Helen Lynch is highlighted for her work on Proceeds of Crime Act cases while her colleague Paula Berry is praised for the work of her “dedicated'' Crown Court team.
Mr Rahman today welcomed the attention from “The Legal 500”.
He said: “It is the third year in a row we have gained such a prestigious ranking. Once again, it is very pleasing to be recognised for our achievements in the fields of fraud and business crime.
“But this year, “The Legal 500” also seems to have become more aware of our successes in other areas of law, which is equally satisfying.
“For a firm that has only been in existence for 11 years, the progress we have made and the recognition that we are gaining from such distinguished authorities as “The Legal 500” is exceptional. It is all down to the dedication and expertise of our staff, which I am very pleased to see that “The Legal 500” has taken the time to acknowledge.”
