The 2021 directory sees Griffin Law maintain its ranking of ‘Leading Firm’. The team receives a glowing report: ‘A phenomenal team providing a world-class service for individuals and companies alike…the work they produce is outstanding and they punch well above their weight locally, nationally and internationally.’ ‘They unfailingly back their opinions on the outcome of litigation with their own cash. Risk-sharing is in their DNA which ensures that cases are pursued with maximum vigour and imagination.’ It also specifically focuses on a number of our fantastic lawyers: Donal Blaney is specifically outlined for his astuteness: ‘Donal Blaney is as shrewd as they come – an aggressive litigator in the best sense of the word, he has an uncanny knack of knowing when to deploy the big stick.’ Mark Edmonds specialises in insolvency and commercial disputes and is praised as ‘the most no-nonsense litigator around’: Mark Edmonds is as good an associate as you will find outside London. He is a master at getting to the heart of a matter and provides clients with the advice they can rely on.’ ‘I have worked only with Mark Edmonds at Griffin Law so cannot comment beyond him. My understanding is that the firm (through Mark) offers exceptional value for money in the commercial dispute resolution arena, and is a great option for those who want London quality service but do not want to pay London prices.’ ‘Mark Edmonds is the most no-nonsense litigator around. Blessed with common sense and a robust approach, Mark cuts through the noise and gives clients straightforward advice, and opponents no quarter. Mark is a pleasure to work with, and a refreshing antidote to the stuffy and slightly pompous commercial litigators it is common to find at some of the larger London firms.’ Laura Ware receives comment on her skills and approach: ‘Laura Ware – junior yet far above her years. Very personable, compassionate and has a real knack for things.’ Mark Fleet is praised for his management of matters: ‘Mark Fleet has been excellent, and he has shown himself to be very attentive and sympathetic to the case. More importantly, he seems to have some very good relationships with the clerks that organise barristers’ schedules. He was able to provide an excellent package of young barristers/pupils on the small claims work all the way up to QCs on the work that involved the Court of Appeal. Other larger firms I have dealt with make me feel as though the people are interchangeable. That may be the case with Mark, but I have always dealt with Mark and he has made sure that any of the back-office work is done with little disruption to me. He provides a clear analysis of the problem and presents possible solutions.’
