Double success for PCB Litigation

PCB Litigation is delighted to share with you a double success achieved last week. Not only has PCB Litigation continued to be highly ranked in Legal 500 – including in Tier 1 for civil fraud work – with all five partners being recommended, but we have been shortlisted for Specialist Law Firm of the Year in the prestigious British Legal Awards.

The partners are extremely appreciative of your continued support for the firm.

Our dual recognition is a reflection of the continued strength and growth of PCB Litigation.

In The Legal 500, we maintained our top tier ranking for civil fraud – being described as “a niche firm which has built up an outstanding reputation in the civil fraud field”, “punching well above its weight” and providing “pragmatic, current and appropriate advice on all fronts” – with Steven Philippsohn and Anthony Riem again recognised as leading individuals. PCB Litigation also continues to be ranked highly for both commercial and banking litigation, having “expanded its disputes scope beyond the civil fraud arena to include complex commercial litigation work”, with an array of accolades going to our partners. “Highly rated” Steven Philippsohn is a “name to note”, whilst Anthony Riem “gives sensible and measured advice” and is “a shrewd tactician and a great fighter”. “Wise and sharp” and “encyclopedic” Trevor Mascarenhas has “strong business acumen and gives appropriate advice”, Nick Ractliff “is well regarded for shareholder and joint venture disputes, unfair prejudice matters, and breach of fiduciary duty claims” and Jon Felce is also recommended as a key contact.

Meanwhile, we are also very proud to have been recognised by The British Legal Awards, the glittering awards ceremony being said to represent the cream of the UK’s legal community.

We look forward to sharing our continued success with you in the future.

Steven, Tony, Trevor, Nick and Jon
