Baines Wilson Lancaster achieves high rankings in the North West Legal 500 guide

Following the opening of our branch in the Lancaster area a few years ago the firm’s Lancaster based teams have now been ranked in the highly regarded Legal 500 guide for the first time.

The firm’s Lancaster employment law team, headed up by Joanne Holborn, and including well known Lancaster lawyer Caroline Rayner, are recommended for their “superb levels of advice”. They are ranked as one of the leading teams in the whole North West region and the only firm in the Lancaster and Morecambe area for this specialism.

Caroline Rayner comments: “We are really very pleased to be recognised. Our specialist employer’s only team is unique in the Lancaster/Morecambe areas and is going from strength to strength following the launch of our new Titanium retainer service for employers”.

The firm’s commercial property department is ranked as one of the leading teams in the North. Sean Logue heads the team and he is ranked in the elite “Leading Lawyers” of recommended lawyers nationwide. The guide also praises property partners Duncan Harty and Laura Barnfield and singles out Lancaster based Laura for her “experience and dedication” and her “ability to remain calm in difficult scenarios”.

The firm’s corporate law team, headed by Andrew Hill and John Wilson are also ranked and have had a very busy year acting on a number of deals for a variety of North Lancs based companies and entrepreneurs.

The Lancaster office’s Dispute Resolution team is the only Lancashire firm north of Preston to be ranked and lawyers Isobel Milburn and Martin Stafford are praised.

Managing Partner, John Wilson said “Our Lancashire practice continues to grow and we expect to be recruiting more lawyers soon so watch this space…”
