According to one market commentator, "the team are dynamic, well prepared and easy to get along with. They turn advice around very quickly and have a good understanding of what the client wants."

Research carried out by legal directory Legal 500 also comments on our personal injury work: 

Ledingham Chalmers LLP specialises in representing public bodies in fraudulent, catastrophic and fatal claims. The firm also acts for insurers. Sarah Morris represented a local authority in a stress-at-work claim brought by an employee and, in a separate matter, represented a different local authority in a fatal mesothelioma claim brought by the deceased’s widow. She also represented a public sector client in a Court of Session action raised by the family of a motorcyclist following his death in a road traffic accident. Edinburgh team head John Chalmers represented a local authority in a fatality compensation claim arising from a house fire, and acted for another public sector client in a public liability claim. Aberdeen-based Graeme Edward is also recommended.
