Doyles Guide is an independent guide to the legal profession in Australia, with rankings compiled through feedback from in-house counsel and peers practising in Australia. Recently the results in respect of Leading Wills & Estates Litigation law firms in Perth and leading practitioners for 2016 were released.
Both Kott Gunning Lawyers and Kott Gunning Partner Mark Fatharly were acknowledged as being a leading firm and leading litigator in Wills & Estate Litigation in the directory. The online peer-based surveys and extensive telephone and face to face interviews with clients, peers and relevant industry bodies, reflect that the partners’ and firm’s approach to providing relevant, appropriate advice in a down to earth, no-fuss way is appreciated by clients and recognised by peers.
Listings for firms within Doyles Guide contain four categories, three “Tiers” and “Recommended”. The Australian legal community is familiar with the concept of tiers, and it is noted the tiers in Doyle’s Guide are not an even platform across all states – a second tier firm in one state may be equal to or better than a first tier firm in another. Each category then has firms listed a listed alphabetically, and there is no difference in ranking/rating regardless of position in the category.
Three categories are utilised for listing leading lawyers: Preeminent, Leading and Recommended. “Preeminent” and “Leading” are lawyers who consistently draw the praise of clients and peers, and “Recommended” lawyers display particular skills or attributes within their practice area.
