Hogan Lovells Ranked in the UK's Top 100 Lawyers List
10 July 2013
LONDON, 10 July 2013 - Hogan Lovells has been included in the new Chambers 100 directory, which ranks the UK's top 100 lawyers based on feedback from more than 600 general counsel.
Four Hogan Lovells partners feature in the Chambers 100 list, which was published today, including:
- Jon Holland - placed 49th in the list for his work in banking litigation. Chambers say that, "Jon's technical knowledge is second to none," and he has the "ability to translate that technical knowledge into a strategy and a workable solution for business."
- Matthew Cottis - listed in 71st place for his work in banking and finance. He was praised by Chambers for knowing the "ins and outs of loan documentation like the back of his hand," and for being "extremely well practised at advising lenders on commercial areas in a highly efficient and well-mannered way.”
- Nicholas Cheffings - placed 78th in the rankings for his work in real estate litigation. “Nicholas has the perfect combination of technical expertise and commercial awareness," writes Chambers, "He gives clear, unambiguous and concise commercial advice.”
- John Meltzer - ranked 88th and praised by Chambers for his "Very thorough, patient and responsive, sensible and balanced approach," and lauded for his ability to "develop a good working rapport with opponents."
Others from Hogan Lovells to join the 200 shortlisted for the ranking include partners Michael Stancombe, Suyong Kim and consultant John Pheasant. The Chambers 100 list can be viewed here.
To create the final Chambers 100, researchers collated a list of all lawyers who had been top in their field in the Chambers UK guide, which ranks firms by practice areas. The researchers then asked over 600 general counsel for additional comment on the individuals, assigning points to five categories of skill such as communication and commercial awareness.
