The Legal 500 UK 2017

LGFL Ltd - Leading Firm

Rita Gupta and Anne Leiper - Recommended Lawyers

Our inclusion in the Legal 500 is particularly special to us as this status is only awarded after a long and in-depth appraisal process. This involves the Legal 500 team talking to our clients and partners as well as examining what we do - and how. Many family law firms do not achieve Leading Firm status, so to achieve it on our first application as is very special!

The Legal 500 covers 105 countries worldwide, and is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading referral guide for legal services. The Guide is totally independent, and focuses on the strength and depth of legal teams as well as individuals. Those included are recommended purely on merit.

Chambers and Partners

For the first time, LGFL Ltd is recognised in the Chambers UK guide as a Noted Firm. Rita Gupta and Anne Leiper are both listed in Family and Matrimonial Law for Reading and the surrounding area.

First published in 1990, the Chambers independent and highly respected guide covers over 70 specialist areas of law across the UK. Like the Legal 500, entry is only awarded at the end of a long vetting and approval process. This rigorous process ensures that when future UK clients and partners find LGFL Ltd listed in Chambers, they know we offer the highest standards of family law services and undertake notable and complex cases.

Chambers is also a major point of reference for clients based abroad, but looking for an excellent lawyer in another jurisdiction. So, inclusion in the Guide puts Leiper Gupta Family Lawyers firmly on the global map.

Venus Awards Finalist

Rita was a finalist for the Hampshire Professional of the Year 2017 at the Venus Awards. While the award didn’t actually come her way on the night, this was the first time Rita had been nominated, and just reaching the final was a major achievement in itself.

The Oscars 2018??
