Baines Wilson LLP recommended again in Legal 500 (2013 Edition)

As one of the North of England’s leading specialist commercial law firms with offices in Carlisle and Lancaster, we are delighted to report that all of our departments have once again been recognised and recommended in the latest (2013) edition of the Legal 500.

Legal 500 assesses law firms not only on the basis of size and resources but also on the extent to which clients and intermediaries recommend them in a particular field. The recognition which we have received is, therefore, independent confirmation of our expertise and quality of service.

Having been ranked by the Chambers Guide as the leading Corporate and Commercial team in Cumbria, our Corporate and Commercial department is jointly ranked as the leaders for Corporate and Commercial work in Cumbria.

Our Commercial Property team, headed by Sean Logue, is described as providing an “excellent service in complex property transactions”.

Our Employment team, which acts exclusively for employers, is recommended for being “vastly knowledgeable”.

Our Dispute Resolution department is also recommended, with Legal 500 commenting that Isobel Milburn, who heads up the department, “approaches her work with diligence, and has a realistic take on business practice”.

Managing Partner, John Wilson, comments:-

“We are naturally delighted to have been recognised once again by the Legal 500 and would like to thank our clients and business contacts for their positive comments.

The Legal 500’s recommendation of all of our core departments of Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Property, Employment Law and Dispute Resolution is particularly pleasing in a year in which we have opened a new office in Lancaster and is independent verification of the level of service and expertise we offer to business clients in Cumbria, Lancashire and further afield.”
