The Legal 500 has for many years recommended Lanyon Bowdler for corporate and commercial services in the West Midlands and the department has been recognised again in the 2021 edition, stating: "In a notable development at Lanyon Bowdler, Edward Burrell made partner in 2019. Burrell works with department head Gráinne Walters to handle a wide range of complex corporate transactions, including acquisitions, disposals, investments and mergers. Other work covers joint ventures, corporate reorganisations and succession planning. The team, which is based in Telford, is well-known among businesses located throughout the West Midlands."
The 2020 edition states: "Telford-based Lanyon Bowdler offers 'strength in knowledge and experience' for clients in the West Midlands and further afield."
A past edition of Chambers UK recognised the team, saying the department is known as being a "Respected local practice covering Shropshire and Herefordshire, with a strong base of agricultural clients. Practice specialisms include MBOs, joint venture arrangements and succession planning. Advises charities and non-profits, renewable energy companies and educational institutes''
One client enthuses: "I really like the relationship I have built with them. Their document turnaround is quick and they've become a valuable part of my team."
Other sources say: "They've been able to tone down the legal jargon into layman's speak for shareholders - we feel like we are dealing with normal people who understand the legal side but are able to make it clear."
Put simply, we understand the important relationship between the legal and commercial aspects of a business.
