The Chambers guide is a legal directory which identifies and ranks the most outstanding law firms and lawyers in various practice areas and jurisdictions using in-depth research. The first Chambers guide was published in 1990 and originally just covered law firms in the UK, however since then it has expanded to seven guides covering more than 180 jurisdictions across the world.

To achieve a ranking in the guide, law firms have to enter a submission including information about a department’s specialisms and work highlights from the past year. In addition, firms provide details of clients who are happy to be contacted by Chambers to discuss their experiences of using the firm and provide a testimonial.

Family and Child Care

Rotheras’ Family and Child Care team which ranked in tier 2 in last year’s guide now ranks in tier 1 for Nottingham and surrounds. Described as “well versed in mandates with international aspects, as well as sophisticated issues surrounding businesses and pensions” the 15-strong team is well regarded for handling matrimonial finance cases and children matters. One client interviewed by Chambers remarked: “The lawyers are very supportive so that I truly feel there is someone there to reassure me.”

Head of Family Paul Cobb is recognised as a ranked lawyer in the 2022 guide, where he is described as a respected practitioner known for his experience advising on high-value financial remedies and child arrangement orders” as well as “highly skilled at handling divorce proceedings as well as the separation of cohabiting couples.” A client said: “I can’t praise Paul highly enough – his knowledge, his expertise and the way he deals with matters is absolutely incredible.”

Personal Injury

Rotheras’ Personal Injury department ranks in tier 2 for Nottingham and surrounds. Headed up by Senior Associate Greg Almond who is recognised by the guide as a notable practitioner, Chambers states the department “handles a wide range of personal injury claims, specialising in serious RTA cases, workplace accidents and public liability claims”. A client states: “Rotheras is excellent to deal with; the team is well organised and efficient.”


Rotheras’ Motorist Offence and Transport department, which ranked in tier 3 in the 2021 guide now ranks in tier 2 UK-wide. Headed up by partner Anton Balkitis, Chambers describes the department as an “established practice with broad expertise in road regulatory matters” which is “adept at advising on regulatory compliance concerns such as licence applications” and is “noted for its capacity to advise clients in relation to cases involving environmental offences.” One client interviewed by Chambers said the team has “the ability to understand what is important, and how they can guide a business to the right answers, explaining in straightforward terms the implications of any actions and how to implement changes needed, along with the representation for any casework.”

Head of Transport Anton Balkitis is also a ranked lawyer and Senior Associate Chris Powell has been recognised as an ‘Associate to Watch’.
