Rahman Ravelli has been ranked as top fraud solicitors in the world’s most prestigious legal guide for the fourth year running.
The firm, with bases in Halifax, London and Birmingham, has once again gained the Tier 1 ranking in the fraud solicitors section of “The Legal 500’’; which rates legal firms in more than 100 countries.
The Legal 500 describes Rahman Ravelli as a “powerhouse and go-to firm for big players in need of representation’’. It also calls it “a dynamic firm which provides a stellar service to its clients’’ that never fails to impress those it represents and others in the legal profession.
Naming the firm’s founder, Aziz Rahman, as a leading individual in his field, it calls him a “Rolls-Royce performer’’ whose “formidable intellect and great strategic judgement mark him out as an exceptional lawyer’’.
This year’s Legal 500 also praises the “tenacious and terrier-like approach’’ of Rahman Ravelli senior associate solicitor Nicola Sharp. It adds that she is highly recommended by clients for her “frightening intellect’’ and “superhuman ability to soak up dense and complex facts’’. Fellow senior associate solicitor Neil Williams earns praise for his “intuitive grasp of the finer tactical points that arise in complicated cases’’ as well as his logical analytical skills.
Rahman Ravelli’s Legal 500 success comes after a year in which it has been put forward for a variety of awards, moved to bigger London premises and been involved in many of the major business crime cases here and abroad.
Aziz Rahman said: “Our rankings in The Legal 500 are hugely pleasing to everyone at Rahman Ravelli. First and foremost, we are about providing the very best defence in cases of fraud, business and white-collar crime and an unrivalled service to all our clients.
“To have The Legal 500 recognise this once again is a tribute to everyone who works for us.’
