Yorkshire's highest ranked fraud solicitors Rahman Ravelli have taken on business crime specialist Steve Milner.
The Halifax-based firm, which was Yorkshire's only top ranking fraud legal practice in the recently-published “The Legal 500”, appointed Milner after identifying him as an excellent addition to its staff.
He arrives with 15 years' experience and an impressive track record of defending clients in a wide variety of business crime cases, which appealed to Rahman Ravelli's founder, Aziz Rahman.
Mr Rahman believes his latest addition can help Rahman Ravelli consolidate its top ranking while further boosting the firm's increasingly-high national and international profile.
He said: “Our increasing workload has led to us looking to recruit more proven, high calibre staff. From initial discussions with Steve, it became clear that he has the tenacity, desire to succeed and ability to think outside of the box that we always look for in a solicitor.
“He arrives at a time when Rahman Ravelli is gaining even more official recognition for the work that we do. The pleasing thing about Steve was that he viewed our success as an incentive to aim even higher rather than something to be complacent about.
“In appointing him, we have taken on someone with all the qualities we insist on; someone who has the same goals as myself and the rest of the team. We believe he is exactly the type of person to make sure that the progress of Rahman Ravelli continues.”
Milner has been praised in “The Legal 500” and other guides as an excellent legal practitioner who is a leading authority in his field. He is known for his specialist expertise, his reassuring presence with clients and the robust way that he defends their interests.
Rahman Ravelli's top ranking in “The Legal 500” capped years of progress for the firm, which specialises in fraud, business crime and complex crime cases. The firm has helped shape the law in its chosen fields and regularly handles national and international cases that involve tens or hundreds of millions of pounds.
Milner said: “Rahman Ravelli has quickly established a great reputation for attracting top-quality work and I am looking forward to getting stuck in. It is a great opportunity to work with an excellent team on some top-end cases.”
