Leading commercial law firm Hill Dickinson has clinched a double first in the new Aquis Adviser Rankings Guide, out 30 May.
The Guide, which ranks six types of investment adviser, including legal advisers, awards Hill Dickinson top spot overall in the law firm category rankings, which have been compiled and published for the first time this year. The firm has a total of 22 AQSE clients – more than any other legal provider in the list.
Hill Dickinson also ranks #1 on the basis of its clients’ market capitalisation value, a measure used by investors to calculate a company’s size and worth as determined by the stock market, based on the total market value of all outstanding stock shares.
Further, by sector breakdown, the firm also leads the client rankings in the Financials & Real Estate and the Health Care sectors.
