South Coast lawyers praised as leaders in legal directory

Posted on
Family law specialists at south coast firm Blake Morgan have been highlighted as among the best in their field in the latest edition of a prestigious legal directory.

The 2015 edition of Chambers has for the first time included a ranking for Blake Morgan’s Portsmouth and Southampton-based family law teams.

Simon Burge, head of the south coast family law team is particularly singled out for his “responsive, quick and supportive” advice.

The guide, widely regarded as the most authoritative guide to the legal profession in the UK, also highlights the firm’s private client teams in the region, who retain their top Tier 1 ranking for their expertise in areas such as inheritance tax, wills and probate.

Chambers UK: A Client’s Guide to the Legal Profession is compiled from research including interviews with clients and other law firms.

Firm-wide, Blake Morgan is ranked in 65 practice areas, with Tier 1 rankings for south coast teams in areas including banking and finance, agriculture and rural affairs, construction, crime, employment, intellectual property, licensing, pensions and real estate.

Martin Hirst, Blake Morgan regional senior partner for the south coast, said: “I’m delighted with this strong showing in Chambers which shows the high regard in which our firm is held by our clients and peers.”
