Blake Morgan’s London office is celebrating its success after winning a stream of accolades in the 2022 edition of the Legal 500.
Each year, the directory reviews and benchmarks the strength of law firms and their lawyers based on extensive research and feedback from clients. This year the London office secured 16 rankings, reflecting its specialist expertise and the industry standing of the firm’s lawyers in the capital.
Its Professional Discipline practice achieved Tier 1 status in recognition of delivering best-in-class service, while 13 individual lawyers were recognised individually in the directory.
David Miles, an experienced mediator, was featured in the ‘Hall of Fame’ category, while four individuals were recognised as ‘leading individuals’. Amongst them was Ian Skuse, commended by one of his clients as being ‘an outstanding font of knowledge on the practical application of travel law’. Felicity Rowan was ranked as a ‘next generation partner’ and praised for her ‘insightful proactive’ approach. A further six lawyers were recognised as ‘Rising Stars’ including Michelle Davenport and Keith Lancaster.
Overall, Blake Morgan secured 62 rankings and 29 of its practice areas were ranked ‘Tier 1’. The practice areas that achieved Tier 1 rankings included Professional Discipline, Corporate and Commercial, Debt Recovery, Commercial Litigation, Banking and Finance, Employment, Family, Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate, Public Sector, Construction, Environment and Planning, Intellectual Property, IT and Telecomms, Pensions, Social Housing, Insolvency and Corporate Recovery, Property Litigation, and Commercial Property.
It’s fantastic to see the work and achievements of our lawyers being recognised in this year’s Legal 500 and to secure a Tier 1 ranking for our Professional Discipline practice. Equally pleasing is the inclusion of new teams to the rankings, such as our Fraud: White Collar Crime team. It’s a testament to everyone who has worked hard over the last year to deliver a top-class service to clients and navigate what has been a challenging year for all.
