Thrings has been ranked by The Times as one of the best law firms in the country for the second consecutive year.

The Times Top 250 Law Firms surveys those in the legal industry to recognise the most highly regarded organisations in the field, with the firm’s family lawyers being specifically commended – also for the second year in a row.

Thrings’ inclusion in the 2024 list of the top 250 firms across England and Wales also recognises the firm’s work in international litigation, agriculture, banking and finance, development of land, and private client work.

As part of the survey, which is now in its fifth year, solicitors and barristers from across England and Wales were asked by international market research firm Statista to recommend the best law firms in 28 categories.

The recognition by the Times follows the recent announcement that Thrings maintained its high standings in the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 rankings with a combined 60 ranking places secured by individual lawyers and a further 29 places by practice areas across the firm.

Simon Holdsworth, managing partner at Thrings - which is headquartered in Swindon with offices in Bristol and Bath – said: “It is fantastic to once again feature in the Times Best Law Firms list, demonstrating the consistent approach we take to supporting our clients, and the impression this has left on the rest of the legal community.

“Our Family team is a credit to the whole firm and having them once again commended in the rankings is a testament to this and I want to congratulate them on their continued recognition.”
