Baines Wilson has again been rated as one of the best in the North West and as a top corporate firm for SME/Owner Managed Businesses in Cumbria in the respected Chambers Guide 2017.

Corporate lawyers John Wilson and Andrew Hill are ranked as top corporate lawyers for SME/Owner Managed Businesses in Cumbria, with Joanne Holborn ranked amongst the best employment lawyers in the North West region.

The guide lists the Baines Wilson Corporate team for its “strong reputation in M&A work” and highlights the team’s work in advising shareholders on the £5 million sale of property consultancy North Associates (Cumbria) to WYG and acting for Lloyd Motors on the acquisition of a BMW and Mini dealership group.

Head of Corporate Andrew Hill is listed as having particular strength in advising owner-managed businesses and being “known for his specialism in M&A”, whilst Managing Partner John Wilson is listed as having “complementary strengths in intellectual property, sports and entertainment”.
