The highly acclaimed “South East’s leading individuals listing” includes Coffin Mew’s Amanda Brockwell (Corporate and Commercial), Malcolm Niekirk (Insolvency).

Our Clinical Negligence team leapt to Tier 2. Sue Bowler and Douglas Miller are distinguished for their “good connections with medical experts” and excellent reputation for “robust advice”. The team attracts high praise for working “extremely hard” on all of their cases.

Amanda Brockwell led the advice on this matter and, in common with Nick Gross, has substantial experience in the market.

Our Insolvency and Corporate Recovery team are praised for their breadth of competency in “corporate and personal, contentious and non-contentious, and business recovery matters”.  Jonathan Lupton and Malcolm Niekirk are recommended.

Miles Brown said “Coffin Mew’s rankings in the Legal 500 are important to us. They reflect the quality of work and breadth of services that we provide to our clients and referrers. It is a fantastic achievement for our Clinical Negligence team to have been elevated to Tier 2. Our excellent position in the South East is attributable to the determination of our highly motivated teams, who have embraced our business strategy.”
