Four Blake Morgan lawyers have been awarded leading accolades by their fellow peers at the Best Lawyers awards 2020.  Simon Burge, Max Craft, Susie Dryden and Sian Jones have all been ranked as ‘Lawyer of the Year’ in their respective fields.

The Best Lawyers awards are the oldest peer review awards in the legal industry and are highly regarded by clients and legal professionals.  The lists of outstanding lawyers are compiled by conducting peer review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.

The categories and awards were:

  • Simon Burge: Family Law Lawyer of the Year in Southampton
  • Max Craft: Employment Law Lawyer of the Year in Southampton
  • Susie Dryden: Litigation Lawyer of the Year in Southampton
  • Sian Jones: Litigation Lawyer of the Year in Cardiff

As well as the four winners, more than 40 Blake Morgan lawyers have been listed as outstanding lawyers in a wide range of fields including Banking & Finance, Construction, Clinical Negligence, Employment and Intellectual Property among others.  The full list is available here: www.bestlawyers.com.

Blake Morgan Chairman, Bruce Potter, said: “I’d like to congratulate Simon, Max, Susie and Sian for their awards as Lawyer of the Year.  There is no higher accolade than being ranked as the leading lawyer in your field by fellow peers, so we are extremely proud of them.

“We are delighted to have more than 40 other lawyers listed as outstanding lawyers in such a wide range of practices – this is testament to the hard work of our people and goes to show not only how we’re valued across a number of disciplines, but that we’re able to offer a broad, high-quality service.”
