Baines Wilson LLP recommended in Legal 500 (2015) edition

The Legal 500 guide has again recognised and recommended our specialist departments in its latest (2015) edition.

The Legal 500 assesses law firms based on the size and resources but also on the extent that clients recommend it in a particular field. Recognition is therefore independent confirmation of its expertise and quality of service.

Baines Wilson’s Corporate Commercial, Commercial Property and Dispute Resolution departments are all top tier recommendations and the Employment team is recommended in the north of England category.

Eight of our firm’s lawyers are recommended; Andrew Hill, John Wilson, Isobel Milburn, Joanne Holborn, Tom Scaife, Duncan Harty, Laura Barnfield and Sean Logue.

Sean Logue also appears in a northern regional list of elite lawyers dominated by Newcastle based advisers.

Legal 500 said the clients “appreciate the strength and depth and human touch offered” by the firm which is nice to know!

Andrew Hill’s “extensive commercial contract knowledge” was praised. John Wilson “is highly regarded” and clients also stated that the firm was “passionate about providing a thorough service and delivering excellent value for money”.

Our growing litigation and dispute resolution department was praised with Isobel Milburn also being “highly regarded”.

We are also ranked by the respected Chambers guide as the leading Corporate and Commercial team in Cumbria and have recently been shortlisted for Service Business of the Year in the Cumbrian Business Awards.

We are delighted to be recognised and recommended again by this prestigious guide and as always we would very much like to thank our clients and business contacts for the positive comments.
