* Denotes "Recognized Practitioner"

According to Chambers, a "Recognized Practitioner" handles notable matters and / or has received some recommendation during the course of their research. However, the individual or practice has not received a sufficiently high level of sustained recommendation to be included in the printed version of the Chambers guide. Instead, the "Recognized Practitioner" category shows that individuals and practices are on the research radar.
