The Times has once again included Hudgell Solicitors in its list of the ‘Best 250 Law Firms’ in England and Wales – this year highlighting our human rights work as we secured our fourth successive inclusion in the prestigious list.

The accolade follows impressive rankings and testimonials for the work of our legal teams in the leading Legal 500 andChambers and Partners 2024 legal guides, which were each recently published.

For the past three years we have been commended for work in supporting clients with personal injury and clinical negligence claims by The Times.

This is the first year our human rights work, led by our growing Civil Liberties department, has been commended for its achievements, which has included representing clients in high-profile inquests and at Public Inquires.

In today’s listings, the Times highlights how Hudgells has helped more than 70 former subpostmasters to clear their names, having been wrongfully prosecuted when accused of theft and false accounting due to a glitch in the Post Office’s central computer system, Horizon.

It says Hudgells have been at ‘the forefront’ of the case, and also cites work representing more than 170 people injured in the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing,  highlighting ‘packages of support, including dedicated rehabilitation services and financial assistance’ which have been provided.

‘Impressive reflection of work’

Chief executive Rachel Di Clemente said: “We’re thrilled to be included in this list one again, and to have strengthened our position with the inclusion of the work of our civil liberties department, alongside our personal injury and clinical negligence teams.

“Over the past month we have seen the achievements of our team extensively recognised by both our clients and by experts in the legal field.

“The Times Best 250 Law Firms list is produced on the back of feedback from lawyers at other legal firms who see our work, understand the complexities and sensitivities of the cases we are involved in, and see how we support our clients to get them the best results.

“To be recognised by our peers in this way is an impressive reflection of all we do and our teams should be rightfully proud of what they have achieved.”
