Chambers Europe 2016 Legal Ranking


Posted in News on Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Chambers Europe 2016 Legal Rankings have just been published and the firm of Cantillons Solicitors is delighted to have been included.

Chambers identify the best law firms globally, whether they consist of one lawyer or a thousand.

Chambers Guides are the culmination of thousands of in-depth interviews by the largest research team of its kind and are trusted globally to objectively rank the world’s best lawyers and law firms.

The Guide sets out the Firm’s strengths (consisting of quotes mainly from clients) as follows:-

 “I would have no hesitation saying that this firm is the best at what it does: no stone is left unturned, everything is handled with great analysis, and the lawyers adopt a critical approach of identifying the weak and strong points of a case.”

Managing Partner Ernest J. Cantillon, is described within the Guide as follows:-

“Ernest Cantillon is a hugely renowned figure in medical negligence and leads a high volume of complex actions on behalf of individual plaintiffs.” Sources praise him as a lawyer “who can go back to first principles and challenge the established view,” while others add: “He is the best litigator in Ireland in my opinion. Obsessive attention to detail. Searches all corners of the earth for expert witnesses. His intellectual capacity is huge and he possesses extraordinary strategic sense.”

Mr. Cantillon has described the independent ranking as a badge of honour.  

“We are really humbled to hear from a truly independent source, that we are doing the best work conceivable for our clients, which is what we set out to do, each and every day, in each and every case.  

Our firm is very much based on the ethos of team work, and nothing would be possible without the dedication and tenacity of each and every person in our 40 strong staff, at our office in 38/39 South Mall, Cork.”
