The latest edition of Chambers & Partners has been published and Walker Morris has reinforced its position as a ‘top ranked firm’.
Walker Morris now has 27 practice areas ranked and its national presence and client base has been reflected with UK-wide rankings in Consumer Finance, Education, Local Government and Retail. In addition the firm achieved rankings as ‘National Leaders (outside London)’ in five practice areas including Corporate / M&A, Litigation, Planning, Real Estate and Restructuring & Insolvency.
The firm’s focus on investing in specialist, high calibre lawyers has also been reflected with 51 individual rankings for its lawyers. Walker Morris now has 87% of its partners ranked as leading individuals in either Chambers or Legal 500.
Richard Naish, partner at Walker Morris commented:
“Our success is down to the quality of our people and the strength of our client base, both nationally and internationally. As the largest single site commercial law firm without a London office, Walker Morris occupies a distinctive position in the legal marketplace. We have a strategy of investing in high calibre expertise and we’re delighted that now 87% of our partners are recognised as leading individuals in either Chambers or Legal 500.”
Earlier this week the firm was announced as winner of the ‘Legal 500 Award Finance Firm of the Year (Regional) 2017’ – recognising it as the leading law firm in this field outside London.
