Rahman Ravelli ranked as top white-collar fraud solicitors in Yorkshire for the fourth consecutive year

Rahman Ravelli has been ranked as Yorkshire’s top fraud solicitors in the Legal 500 for the fourth year running.

The firm, with bases in Halifax, London and Birmingham, has once again gained the Tier 1 ranking in the fraud solicitors section of The Legal 500 which rates legal firms in more than 100 countries. It is the only Yorkshire firm to achieve Tier 1 status for fraud.

The Legal 500 has described Rahman Ravelli as a “powerhouse and go-to firm for big players in need of representation’’. It also calls it “a dynamic firm which provides a stellar service to its clients’’ that never fails to impress those it represents and others in the legal profession.

It also named the firm’s founder, Aziz Rahman (pictured), as a leading individual in his field, describing him a “Rolls-Royce performer’’ whose “formidable intellect and great strategic judgement mark him out as an exceptional lawyer’’.

This year’s Legal 500 has also praised the “tenacious and terrier-like approach’’ of Rahman Ravelli senior associate solicitor Nicola Sharp. She has been highly recommended by clients for her “frightening intellect’’ and “superhuman ability” to soak up dense and complex facts’.

Fellow senior associate solicitor Neil Williams has earned praise for his “intuitive grasp of the finer tactical points that arise in complicated cases’’ as well as his logical analytical skills.

Rahman said: “Our successes in The Legal 500 are hugely pleasing to everyone at Rahman Ravelli. First and foremost, we are about providing the very best defence in cases of fraud, business and white-collar crime and an unrivalled service to all our clients.

“To have The Legal 500 recognise this once again is a tribute to everyone who works for us.’’
