Travers Smith corporate duo named in the first Chambers 100 Best Business Lawyers guide
Travers Smith is delighted that Senior Partner, Chris Hale and Head of Corporate, Spencer Summerfield, have been listed in the first The Chambers 100 best business lawyers in the UK.
To be considered for The Chambers 100 lawyers must be ranked in Bands One or Two or as 'Star Individuals' in the latest edition of Chambers UK. The editors and researchers then carry out further investigation into the shortlisted candidates by asking clients for their views on these lawyers. On the basis of this additional research they then compile the final 100 ranking.
Both Chris and Spencer have been recognised in the highest Bands of Chambers UK for over a decade and continue to be singled out for their strong communication skills, commercial awareness and insight into their client's business.
Year on year Chris is ranked Band 1 for Private Equity in "Chambers UK" and in providing feedback, clients commented that his "advice and guidance during tense negotiations is excellent [and that] he has a great awareness of all the legal and commercial issues that we deal with in closing large commercial transactions."
Spencer Summerfield is ranked Band 1 for Capital Markets and Band 2 for Corporate/M&A (high-end) and clients praise the manner in which he "breaks down complex issues quickly and is very commercially responsive. A problem solver."
