Baines Wilson has again been rated as one of the top corporate law firms for SME/Owner Managed Businesses in the North West in the respected Chambers Guide 2018.

The firm’s corporate team has the most ranked lawyers in Cumbria, with Andrew Hill and John Wilson being ranked as top corporate lawyers for SME/Owner Managed Businesses. Head of Employment Law, Joanne Holborn, is also ranked amongst the best employment lawyers in the North West region.

The Guide praises the Baines Wilson corporate team for its “excellent quality of service – always punctual, friendly, approachable, and they don’t leave you in any doubt in whatever matter you’re dealing with” and highlights Andrew Hill’s  “technical knowledge, experience in the marketplace, knowledge of how to get things done and preparedness to get involved in transactions”.

This ranking comes hot on the heels of the firm’s top tier rankings in the prestigious Legal 500 guide, where all core departments and 15 lawyers are highly recommended, with Sean Logue, head of Commercial Property, being the only Cumbrian lawyer to make the elite list of leading lawyers recognised nationwide.

Head of Corporate, Andrew Hill comments:

“We are delighted that the strength of our corporate team has again been recognised. In addition to John Wilson and I, we have two other highly experienced and accomplished lawyers in the team, Kate Parker and Chris Kelly. We have strengthened the team further in the last few weeks with the appointment of Samantha Amor, who has joined the corporate team after qualifying with the firm.

As always, we thank again our clients and contacts for their support and for contributing to the Chambers Guide, which is much appreciated.”
