Client testimonial Chambers UK 2017
Blake Morgan’s leading teams and most respected individuals have given a resounding show of strength in Chambers and Partners – the authoritative guide to the legal profession in the UK.

Chambers UK has listed 58 of our teams from around the UK in its 2017 edition – with 22 of those achieving the highest Band 1 ranking and 27 rated in Band 2.

It described Blake Morgan’s various teams in glowing terms, describing it as a “pre-eminent full service firm” with “highly-experienced” lawyers and “excellent” client service.

Among those on the directory’s top rung are the firm’s Employment, Pensions, Private Client and Agriculture teams in the south, and its Thames Valley specialists in planning, social housing and family law.

Our Cardiff-based teams were given the top ranking in Administrative and Public Law, Construction, Corporate/M&A, Employment, Information Technology, Litigation, Real Estate, Real Estate Litigation, Restructuring and Insolvency and Social Housing.

Our Employment practice was given the accolade of being declared a top-tier National Leader outside London, with the directory observing the firm’s “notable offerings” in Oxford, Portsmouth and Cardiff and its expertise in retail, charity and education and both public and private organisations.

We were also named as a National Leader outside London in its Band 2-ranked Banking and Finance, Litigation and Social Housing practices.

Our lawyers achieved an impressive 33 Band 1 rankings, with 16 listed in the second tier, 14 in Band 3, four in Band 4 and two in Band 5.

The directory recognised the firm’s 14 “Associates to Watch”, one Recognised Practitioner, one Senior Statesman, two Star Associates, one “Up and Coming” partner and one “Star Individual”.

“This is an extremely strong showing for Blake Morgan in a widely respected and prestigious guide to expertise and client service in the legal profession. “I’m particularly pleased with these rankings because they are based on the views of clients and peers who have given an overwhelmingly positive view of their experiences with the firm. “I am immensely proud of the high number of practice areas and individuals in this year’s directory, which demonstrates the strength and depth of our teams across our many locations and throughout our full service offering”
