Top tier praise for Muckle LLP

December 2, 2021

North East commercial law firm Muckle LLP is celebrating after securing a hat-trick of independent accreditations based on glowing feedback from both clients and its people.


Muckle LLP’s chambers & partners and Legal 500 UK rankings – which are based on independent research and client feedback – have remained strong in 2021, with clients praising the firm for its ‘client care and communication’ and ‘strategic knowhow and expertise’.

The firm was ranked as industry leading in a host of legal services, including corporate and commercial, property, dispute resolution, charities, education and banking and finance.

The corporate and banking and finance teams were ranked top by both directories, and Muckle remains the only Northern law firm to be ranked nationally for sport by Legal 500.

The firm also maintains its highly prestigious Investors In People Gold accreditation, which encourages and recognises responsible business practices in areas including the environment, employees, customers and suppliers.

The elite accolade ranks Muckle second for legal firms in the 50 to 249 employee bracket, and places it 147th out of 50,000 Investors In People accredited organisations worldwide.

Jason Wainwright, managing partner, says: “These outstanding results reflect the hard work our teams put in every day, whether that’s going the extra mile to deliver an exceptional service to our clients, or working together to create a supportive culture for our people.

“It’s fantastic recognition and one I believe reflects the values that run through our firm.

“Much of the client feedback that came out of Chambers and Legal 500 pointed to our strong team ethic and joined-up approach, and it’s encouraging to see our values really shine through in their quotes.

“I’m extremely proud to see this echoed in the feedback we’ve had from our people, with 98 per cent of those surveyed for Investors In People saying Muckle is a great place to work.
