I was very pleased by the latest edition of the Legal 500 directory. It rightly claims to be the leading guide to law firms in the UK, and is partly based on discussions with clients, referees and competitor firms. Fladgate got many positive rankings and comments, including:
Fladgate LLP’s ‘knowledge of how the art market works is outstanding’. Under the leadership of Paul Howcroft, who is ‘very clever, approachable, pragmatic and ego-free’, the practice acts for collectors, investors and intermediaries, both domestic and overseas, in transactions and disputes.
I shan’t argue with that. If I had an ego, it would be suitably inflated!
