Leeds-based Clarion is a strong presence in the Yorkshire market and is notable for providing high-quality advice on non-contentious private client matters and related disputes. "They are awesome, amazing all round," says an interviewee, who adds that "they are all very knowledgeable."

Clarion is "impressive - a well-liked firm who really know their stuff," according to a source, who also says: "When they are on the other side of the case, I always know that matters will be dealt with competently and in good time, which makes contentious litigation so much easier."
