What the directories have said:

“She is extremely committed to her work and goes the extra mile for her clients.”

Chambers UK, 2022

“These lawyers are as intelligent as they come and have a passion for high quality, insight, and adding value for their client. As to diversity, I worked with a lawyer who was fantastic and dedicated to client service beyond belief – Hannah Raphael.”

The Legal 500, 2021

“Hannah Raphael has been phenomenal. She goes above and beyond in terms of doing the best work for clients. She is an example of a white-collar fraud specialist, but her knowledge is huge and really impressive across a wide variety of subjects. She is basically our go-to white-collar lawyer it is as simple as that. She is really excellent on jurisdictional stuff. She is a brilliant choice. She sees what she does in a broader context, and gets the reputation risks when advising clients, so she will keep an eye on how things will play out in the media, or if something will attract press interest. Also, the breadth of her knowledge is notable. You get people in white collar with real niches, which is good, but she can go to a prison one minute and then advise on repatriation or flight risks.”
