Seddons’ Family, Private Client and Dispute Resolution teams have been recognised by the Legal 500 for their outstanding work.
According to Legal 500 2021, Seddons strives “to achieve the best possible outcome for clients, with the professional and personal skills needed for sensitive and complex matters, working alongside other professionals to protect clients’ financial and legal interests.”
The Guide also highlights a number of key individuals at the firm, including Head of Family Department Deborah Jeff, who is noted as “excellent – she is clear in her advice (even when what she is saying is difficult for her client to hear), and always aims for the best, most realistic outcome. She’s also a tough negotiator, who you’d want on your side.”
According to the Legal 500 Partner Neil Russell “has become one of the go-to people in the matrimonial world and is now regularly instructed by top industrialists and politicians. They know they can rely upon his business acumen and common sense to guide them through the most complex of cases”.
Victoria Sterritt, who is noted by the Guide as a Next Generation Partner, is commended for her ability to make “the client feel relaxed and confident that every aspect of their case is being addressed.”
Similarly, the firm’s Private Client team has been recognised for its “friendly, approachable and direct” manner, with Partner Stuart Crippin noted as “a lawyer who understands complex cross-border legal situations and knows how to achieve excellent results quickly”. The Guide also notes Sarah Clacker and Zoe Pearse as key lawyers.
