The Manchester office of the firm has continued to be named as a Top Tier firm in Intellectual Property. 

The office has also been recommended in eleven further specialist practice areas; corporate and commercial, commercial litigation, insolvency and corporate recovery, clinical negligence, employment, family, personal tax, trusts and probate, construction, property litigation, social housing and IT and telecoms.  

Additionally, three partners in the Manchester office have been listed in the elite ‘Leading Lawyers’ list, the Legal 500’s guide to outstanding lawyers – Susan Hall for intellectual property and IT and telecoms, Roy Crozier for intellectual property and Lindsay Felstead for social housing.

Senior associate Andrew Stone made the Rising Stars list for his work in intellectual property. 

A further 21 recommendations were made for lawyers from the Manchester office. 

Roy Crozier, head of the Manchester office, said: “We are delighted with our numerous rankings in the Legal 500 again this year both for our specialist practice areas and for individual lawyers. 

“This guide features the best of the best so to receive such impressive results again this year really showcases our strength. 

“The Legal 500 is among the most prestigious industry guides and rankings are partly based on client feedback which is a great indication of the quality of our work and the services we provide. 

“The recognition reflects the time we invest in developing relationships with our clients, our high level of service and our great people.” 

The Legal 500 series is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal referral guide. It is an independent guide and firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit.
