Blake Morgan named Wales Law Firm of the Year
Blake Morgan has been named as Law Firm of the Year in Wales by leading legal directory publisher, The Legal 500 UK.
Blake Morgan fought off competition from Eversheds, Hugh James and Geldards to win the award which was part of the inaugural Legal 500 United Kingdom Awards 2014. The awards recognise and reward the best in-house and private practice teams and individuals over the past 12 months based on the most comprehensive research into the UK legal market.
The award period covers the year from November 2013, during which Blake Morgan was formed by the merger of the law firms Morgan Cole and Blake Lapthorn. It follows the announcement earlier this week that nine partners from the firm’s Cardiff office were named as “leading individuals” and some 39 of its solicitors were recommended in the newly published Legal 500 directory 2014, which ranks firms and lawyers.
Blake Morgan employs some 190 in Wales with 29 Partners. The business is led in Wales by Regional Senior Partner Emyr Lewis. He comments: “Our strength as a firm across Wales and Southern England derives from our significant depth of expertise and capability to deliver a first-class service to our clients.”
“Most pleasingly, these awards are an independent endorsement of our capabilities as a firm because they are based on the feedback which Legal 500 received from thousands of interviews with clients. To be announced as the best in Wales is a great achievement and a tribute to our very talented and hardworking lawyers and support staff who strive to ensure the highest possible standards in all that we do.”
