Our deep market insight of the charities sector in the East Midlands has elevated the team to tier 1 and our sports sector experience continues to be recognised with a tier 1 ranking. 2020 is also a significant year for our property finance team in London who have been ranked for the first time. We continue to maintain a reputation for delivering fast, focused and cost-effective legal and commercial real estate advice, with our Nottingham and Leicester commercial property teams being recognised as tier 1 firms in their regions. Our commercial property team in Birmingham has also jumped up a well deserved tier. Debt recovery has continued to thrive, maintaining a tier 1 ranking for our technical expertise in all credit management and debt recovery areas. Our Lime Solicitors team, once again, has been acknowledged as a tier 1 firm for their exceptional personal injury and clinical negligence: claimant work in the East Midlands. Our private capital offering also remains strong with tier 1 rankings for our personal tax, trusts and probate teams in the East Midlands and West Midlands.
