Legal directories success for 3PB education law team

3 Paper Buildings (3PB) wish to congratulate its Family Law team for another set of outstanding results in both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 directories.

Ranked by both directories in the Midlands and Western Circuits, our team has seen both its Matrimonial and Children teams promoted to Band 1 in the Midlands by Chambers and Partners.

The Legal 500 attributed 36 individual rankings to 27 of our barristers – including 8 new rankings. Chambers and Partners rewarded us with 20 individual rankings, acknowledging the expertise of 16 of our barristers, including 3 new rankings.

Supported by a clerking team recognized for its ‘superb customer care and going the extra mile’, our barristers attract the praise of many commentators including:

‘a formidable reputation in matrimonial finance and children cases.’

‘3PB is a spectacular set of chambers with so much strength and depth.’

‘The set exudes calm, personable professionalism. Second to none training and CPD programs for solicitors.’
