Legal 500 has published its latest report on the UK legal industry and Walker Morris has achieved its best ever results, reinforcing its position in the Top Tier.

The independent guide to the legal profession awarded 12 partners at Walker Morris the status of ‘Leading Individual’ – the highest number of any law firm in the region.  A further 32 partners and consultants were identified as leading lawyers in their specialisms.  This achievement is reinforced by a strong performance across the Firm, with 31 practice areas recommended, 23 of which are ranked in either Tier 1 or Tier 2.

Notably, Walker Morris also achieved national rankings in both Financial Services and PFI/Projects.

Managing Partner Ian Gilbert commented:

“We are delighted with these results and the recognition they give not only to our talented lawyers but also to everyone else at the firm.  The quality of our people is a key factor in ensuring our continued success as is our commitment to continue to invest in specialist areas to support our clients.”
