More than 80 per cent of Bell Gully’s partners are ranked in the latest
edition of a leading international legal directory, Chambers Asia
Bell Gully remains at the top of the rankings tables for top-tier practice
areas and Band 1 ranked individuals, after Chambers Asia Pacific 2015
awarded Bell Gully nine Band 1 practice areas and individual lawyers in the firm
achieved 16 Band 1 rankings.
In all, 36 partners and associates achieved 39 individual rankings, as some
were ranked more than once.
Bell Gully Chairman Chris Gordon said the firm’s track-record in Chambers’
publications reflected that true teamwork could be achieved by individually
talented lawyers, in the right environment. “We have an overriding commitment to
working together in the interests of clients. That brings results, and that’s
reflected in what our clients tell researchers.” He said the firm placed
tremendous value on its client relationships, some of which have been in place
for over a century.
