This qualification is widely regarded as a mark of excellence in the profession. The firm has also promoted two lawyers to associate solicitor status.

Josh Taylor focuses on dispute resolution for both businesses and individuals and Katie Raybould undertakes a wide range of residential property matters. Stuart McGregor-Johnson, chairman of Wansbroughs, said: “The partners at Wansbroughs are delighted to recognise their valuable contribution.
