What Should a Law Firm Look Like?

Virtuoso Legal: The New Traditional.

A Top 2% Law Firm

Virtuoso Legal is a cutting-edge IP firm who combine innovative service with the best on offer from the old guard.

The firm has been ranked once again as a leading intellectual property firm in the Chambers and Partners rankings.

Notably, only the top 2% of all law firms are ranked in professional listings such as those compiled by Chambers and Partners.

As such, appearance in the listings is representative of true leadership within the field and intellectual property law, specifically.

The specialist IP unit ranked alongside incumbents such as Walker Morris, DLA Piper, Lupton Fawcett, HGF and others.

In addition to this, Principal Elizabeth Ward has once again been ranked as a leading IP lawyer by the Chambers and Partners research team.

To be specific, Elizabeth has been ranked as a leader in the profession in this area by Chambers and Partners since 2012.

Perhaps most significantly, Virtuoso Legal’s listing this year includes several fantastic quotes from our clients, recorded by the Chambers and Partners team during their research.

And In reference to founder and principal Elizabeth Ward, in particular:


She is an excellent listener, and that is so valuable when asking for advice.”


Comment from Virtuoso Legal Principal, Liz Ward

Upon receipt of the news of our continued ranking and her own personal ranking, our founder stated:


It is fantastic to be recognised by Chambers and Partners as a top 2% law firm. In addition to this, being recognised personally as a sector leader by the industry body is a matter of professional pride.

What we do at Virtuoso Legal is truly unique within law in general, so it is brilliant to see this being recognised by Chambers.

The biggest takeaway for me, however, was the fantastic feedback we received from our clients. To hear our clients value us in many of the ways that we set ourselves out to be is extremely encouraging – and validates many of the ways we are happy to stick our neck out to disrupt the old guard.

My favourite piece of feedback, in particular, was to hear a client describe me as a good listener – because this is something that I am adamant is the secret behind truly good legal work, making sure that the focus is 100% on what the client is looking to achieve. That is something that can only be achieved by really connecting with a client, which is something we do not see enough of in the industry these days.

The ranking and the feedback from clients reaffirm our ‘north star’ which centres on being a truly modern law firm with our clients’ modern business’ success firmly in mind.”
