Lawyer Rankings

East Anglia > Real estate > Property litigation

Its strengths are that it gives sound advice and is able to discuss issues as they arise,‘ says a client of Greene & Greene in Bury St Edmunds. Head of dispute resolution Rob Adam  and key litigator Michael Batty , who is an experienced mediator and a member of the Property Litigation Association, are the key practitioners in a small team that frequently handles contentious property matters exceeding £1m in value. Solicitors Ben Fox and Sarah Western are also recommended.

East Anglia > Private client > Contentious trusts and probate

Greene & Greene has two full ACTAPS members in its practice, which handles work ranging up to multimillion-pound cases in the High Court. Litigation partners Rob Adam, who is ‘approachable and sensible, looking to resolve matters rather than making what are already very difficult and upsetting situations more acrimonious and unsettling‘, and Michael Batty are the key practitioners. ‘Extremely shrewd‘ consultant Kate Chandler and ‘approachable and very client-orientated‘ associate Ben Fox have extensive experience in breach of trust, estate administration and claims concerning the validity of wills.

East Anglia > Finance > Insolvency and corporate recovery

The insolvency and restructuring practice at Greene & Greene in Bury St Edmunds is ‘relaxed and pleasant to deal with‘, according to one client. Litigator Rob Adam leads the practice, which focuses on contentious matters and draws upon the firm’s strong commercial, employment, property and tax practices to assist IPs with pre-packs and other insolvency-related transactions. Senior partner Michael Batty, solicitor advocate Simon Ratcliffe and corporate partner Mark Daly are also active in the practice.
