Cartwright King celebrates latest Legal 500 rankings

We are celebrating after The Legal 500 UK 2013 Guide listed us as a top tier firm in five practice areas, as well as being recommended in a further six areas.

Cartwright King is recommended as a top tier firm in the crime, fraud and licensing category in the East and West Midlands as well as in Yorkshire and the Humber. It is also ranked as a top tier firm for immigration and health and safety solicitors in the East Midlands.

We are also endorsed in a further six practice areas — family, environment and transport for the East Midlands and health and safety, immigration and transport for the West Midlands.

Three of Cartwright King’s solicitors are named in the elite list of outstanding lawyers nationwide and 20 are recommended in the areas of the law in which they specialise.

The individuals that appear in the elite list are Andrew Brammer and Michael Thurston who are all business defence specialists with Cartwright King.

The 20 solicitors who are individually recommended in the guide are as follows:

East Midlands

Crime & Fraud: Andy Cash, Imogen Cox, Michael Thurston and Steve Gelsthorpe.

Health & Safety: Andrew Brammer, Lynn Bleakley and Sundeep Soor.

Cartwright King’s managing director Rupert Hawke, is thrilled with the news which marks a significant improvement in the firm’s standing since the guide was last published twelve months ago.

“We are delighted that the firm has been placed top in so many areas in the new Legal 500 Guide, both on a national and regional level and that more of our solicitors than ever have been individually named and recommended in their particular areas of specialism. The firm began life in 2000 as a small regional legal practice with one office but its strategy of focusing on specialist areas of the law, employing top quality people and expanding geographically has meant that it has now become a well regarded player on a national level. We will continue follow this strategy and building the business further.”
