Dolmans have once again been recognised as a ‘Band 1’ firm for Personal Injury: Mainly Defendant (Wales) in the Chambers & Partners rankings for 2020.
The directory, which identifies and ranks the most outstanding law firms and lawyers throughout the United Kingdom, describes Dolmans as a leading firm which is best known for representing public authorities, notably local councils, and also insurers, in a wide range of claims. Quotes are sourced from other legal practitioners operating in the same area and clients of the practice, with one person describing the firm as “clearly expert in the field of personal injury”. Another interviewee lauded the “excellent and knowledgeable team” which is “always willing to explain the legal position and options available regarding a claim”. Identified in the directory as notable practitioners in the field of personal injury are Justin Harris, who is described by sources as “very focused and driven, and has excellent judgement” and Peter Bennett, recognised as “a very knowledgeable, hard-working and tenacious practitioner” by those interviewed.
Dolmans have also been ranked as a ‘Band 3’ firm for Police Law: Mainly Defendant across the whole of the UK which is an important achievement for the practice. The directory notes a strong presence in Wales and the West Midlands with the team described as being “well organised, structured and very capable”. Sources describe Adrian Oliver as “very easy to work with and has a good sense of judgment” and Melanie Standley is noted for her ability to handle complex, large-scale cases.
Senior Partner, Adrian Oliver, said:
“It is a great achievement for the firm to maintain its ranking as one of the best firms in Wales for personal injury work for another year. The ranking in police law is something which reflects our influence across the UK, a breadth of service being matched by our work for road traffic insurers, which increasingly helps to increase the value of the contribution which the firm makes to the Welsh economy”.
