The annual guide recommends law firms and lawyers across the UK based on location and strengths in practice areas. Baker & Partners was recommended as a Tier 1 firm for Dispute Resolution and a Tier 4 firm for Private Client, Trusts Tax. To achieve top tier status, the Baker & Partners team had to demonstrate a high level of expertise across the spectrum of Dispute Resolution, covering areas such as trust litigation, civil fraud and asset tracing.
Senior Partner, Stephen Baker and Advocate William Redgrave were individually recognised alongside the UK’s elite Dispute Resolution lawyers as part of The Legal 500’s list of Leading Individuals. Advocate James Sheedy, Advocate Charlie Sorensen, and Senior Associate, Kirsty Thomas were also acknowledged as Next Generation Lawyers, a ranking that recognises the strengths of lawyers with under five years of experience.
Stephen Baker commented:
“Following our exceptional achievements in the 2016 Legal 500 guide, I’m delighted to see that not only have we maintained our Tier 1 ranking for Dispute Resolution, but also many more of our lawyers have been recognised and recommended for their expertise this year. I would like to thank our Next Generation Lawyers, James, Charlie and Kirsty, whose excellent work reflects our ongoing dedication to building the knowledge and skills of our team.”
A total of six Baker & Partners lawyers were recommended in this year’s guide and the firm now has the most individuals in the Next Generation list for Dispute Resolution in the Channel Islands.
