Outside of the larger full-service firms, Baker & Partners was the only domestic niche firm to receive praise in the Guide’s overview of Jersey’s legal sector, receiving particular recognition for its specialist litigation and regulatory offering.
The firm was the highest rated non-full service firm in Jersey in the Dispute Resolution category, attaining a Second Tier rating. It won particular praise for its litigation work, the Guide highlighting its ’market-leading crime practice’, which is led by partner Stephen Baker. The Guide points to the firm’s expertise across regulatory investigations and money laundering matters, referring to its role in advising the Kenyan Anti Corruption Commission in a case relating to the recovery of allegedly corrupt payments.
Stephen Baker, Partner, said:
’Baker & Partners has consistently performed well in the Legal 500 Guide as a leading niche, domestic firm in Jersey. To be recognised for the quality of the specialist services we offer alongside a number of global full-service firms in Jersey is very pleasing. We often say that what we don’t do enables us to excel at what we do, and these latest Legal 500 findings would certainly support that approach.’
