Bell Yard top ranked litigation PR firm for third year running

Bell Yard is delighted to share news of its ranking as a Band 1 PR & Communications firm in Chambers’ Litigation Support Guide 2020, marking its third consecutive year at the top of the rankings, upheld each year since the Guide’s inception.

Clients have described the firm as “market-leading” and the team as “outstanding” and “the only go-to.”

Bell Yard Communications’ Director, Melanie Riley, also continues to be ranked in Band 1. She is described as “a force of her own in the field” and as giving “calm, measured and knowledgeable advice that is grounded in her huge experience.”

Melanie said: “Maintaining our pre-eminent position for a third year is reassuring and is testament to the diligence and dedication of our close-knit team. We are extremely grateful for the continued trust and belief in our counsel from our clients, peers and referrers – even more so during these unprecedented times – who challenge us daily to be the best that we can be.”
