Shoosmiths RSG achieves clean sweep of top tier rankings in Legal 500 results

By CreditMan Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Shoosmiths’ Recovery Services Group has achieved tier 1 rankings across all regions from which the team operates in the latest Legal 500 directory results.

The RSG team at the national law firm achieved the highest possible ranking in all six areas that it operates across; London, South East, East and West Midlands, North West and Scotland. Ten members of the national RSG team have also been ‘recommended’ by the legal directory. The banking litigation team achieved Tier 2 ranking in the West Midlands and North West.

The round of top ranking results follows Shoosmiths’ recent FCA authorisation to undertake activities including debt administration, debt collection and mortgage administration. One of only a small number of UK firms to obtain such authorisation, it recognises that the firm is operating with the highest possible standards of conduct across the board, not only including its interface with clients but also the backroom support such as file storage, IT systems and information security.

Waine Mannix, head of the national RSG at Shoosmiths, commented: ‘Achieving Top Tier rankings for debt recovery across all six regions is testament to the team’s hard work, perseverance and commitment to excellence in recoveries legal services.’

‘We continue to invest in the best talent to deliver results and provide our clients with an outstanding service and are well on the way to achieving our vision of becoming the leading recoveries litigation operation in the UK.’

Shoosmiths’ RSG has also been awarded ‘Legal Provider of the Year 2016’ at the Motor Finance Awards and ‘Litigation Team of the Year’ at the Credit Today Awards 2015.
