Blake Morgan celebrates success in The Legal 500

Posted on
Blake Morgan specialists have been named as leaders in their field in the prestigious Legal 500 UK directory, which has just been published.

Our practice has been described as a “key market leader” in Wales, “the go-to firm for the region’s major corporates” in the Thames Valley and “strong across the board" in the South East.

A total of 35 practice areas have been ranked as Tier 1 and a further 48 areas are recommended. Meanwhile, 36 lawyers have been listed as elite “Leading Lawyers” and a further 131 are recommended.

The annual directory, seen as a benchmark of quality for the legal profession, reviews the strengths of lawyers across the UK and makes its recommendations based on how they are seen by their clients and peers.

The directory hails Blake Morgan as a regional heavyweight in the south east, where it is rated as a top tier firm in the region for expertise in practice areas including commercial property, corporate and commercial, employment, personal tax, trusts and probate, commercial litigation and family law.

In Wales, there were top rankings for the firm’s social housing, public sector, personal tax, commercial litigation, trusts and probate, pensions, IT and telecoms, insolvency and corporate recovery, health and safety and debt recovery teams.

In the Thames Valley, Blake Morgan’s offices in Oxford and Reading have earned top tier rankings in the region for corporate and commercial, commercial litigation, commercial property and family law.

Blake Morgan’s London-based Professional Regulatory team was given a top ranking, with the directory noting that “Blake Morgan now has one of the largest professional discipline practices nationally.”
