The Chambers Legal Guide praises Rahman Ravelli’s financial crime expertise and gives the firm top ranking again
Rahman Ravelli has been given the highest ranking by the Chambers and Partners UK Legal Guide for the ninth successive year.
The 2023 edition of the guide classes Rahman Ravelli as an elite firm and highlights both its financial crime work and its achievements in Proceeds of Crime Act and worldwide asset recovery cases.
Classing Rahman Ravelli as a Band 1 firm, Chambers says: “They are fresh and fearless in their thinking and able to take a broad perspective on complex cases
"Rahman Ravelli rightly has a strong reputation in the market for this work. They know their cases inside out and can get to the nub of the contentious issues speedily and effectively."
The newly-published guide also draws particular attention to Rahman Ravelli’s founder and senior partner Aziz Rahman and partners Nicola Sharp and Syed Rahman.
Aziz Rahman is once more named as a Star Individual by Chambers, which says he stands out for his work defending individuals and corporate clients and for his international fraud expertise.
It adds: "He is recognised worldwide as one of the most capable legal experts regarding top-level, high-value commercial and financial disputes. He is one of the most well-known criminal litigators in the country. His reputation is unrivalled and he understands the sector.
"He delivers an all-round first-class service. Aziz Rahman is charismatic, has a global following and is high-profile."
Both Nicola Sharp and Syedur Rahman are identified by Chambers as notable experts in their fields.
Chambers highlights Nicola’s growing reputation in high-profile financial crime matters, her civil recovery work and her track record in cross-border cases.
It says: “Nicola is thorough, personable and knows exactly how to run and manage a complex criminal case. She grasps the case and hones in on the issues that are key."
Chambers emphasises Syed Rahman’s expertise in international, high-stakes financial crime, his pioneering cryptocurrency work, as well his civil asset recovery achievements and his track record in the most involved POCA matters relating to money laundering and fraud.
It adds: "Syedur brings a great deal of energy to his practice. He is keen to forge ground in fast-developing areas and is not put off by the complexities of crypto and other novel instruments that now play a role in frauds."
Three months ago, Chambers named Rahman Ravelli as one of the very best firms when it comes to representing high net worth individuals. It classed Rahman Ravelli as an elite firm in its High Net Worth Legal Guide 2022, which also highlighted Aziz Rahman as one of the best solicitors in the UK in this category.
