Local law firm recommended in the Legal 500

UK Top 200 law firm Porter Dodson has been recommended in the latest edition of the Legal 500 UK (2017).

The Legal 500 is an independent legal guide, recommending and ranking law firms and lawyers based on positive client and external feedback.

Porter Dodson has been ranked in eight different areas of law: Corporate and Commercial; Commercial Litigation; Employment; Contentious Trusts and Probate; Family; Personal Tax, Trusts and Probate; Education; and Commercial Property.

Eleven lawyers have been recommended for a consecutive year: Evelyn Adfield, Richard Baker, Sharon Collier, Lesley Gaskell, Kate James, Rebecca Marshall, Adrian Poole, Louise Sanders, Cathryn Smith, Bruce Weir, and Stephen Wray, who was once again listed as a ‘Leading Lawyer’ in this year’s publication.

Additionally, a further 11 lawyers have also been recognised for their work: Scott Bowley, Anusheh Burcher, Meriel Corrigan, Ben Hingley, Cara Hough, Chris Pemberton, Julia Perrins, Ian Sankey, Nicola Scott, Victoria Walker and Sarah Young.

The total number of lawyer recommendations has increased by 10 from last year.

Managing Partner Robert Fox said he is delighted that Porter Dodson and their fantastic team of lawyers continue to be ranked in the Legal 500. “It’s a well-respected guide and to have nearly doubled the number of lawyers recommended this year highlights all the hard work and expertise provided by our staff and is testament to us continuing to grow and develop as a firm.”
