Top title for specialist team
Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Telford, have been named as winners of the award for Excellence in Intellectual Property Disputes in Acquisition International Magazine’s annual awards.
Senior Partner, Graham Davies, said: “This is the latest in a series of national titles for us, and we’re absolutely delighted to have secured another award that recognises the very high standards we set ourselves. It’s particularly satisfying to take this award as the winners are chosen through votes cast by a combination of clients, other professionals and our peers.
“At Martin-Kaye, we are one of the very few law firms outside major cities to have our own specialist commercial litigation team, and this award is evidence of the fact that our efforts are working.
“To be named as the ‘clear and deserving’ winner is a huge honour for our team, and we’re very proud that our hard work has been acknowledged at such a prestigious level.”
This year’s AI Award follows hot on the heels of another win in the same competition last year for the commercial team, when they were named as Midlands Litigators of the Year. And the firm has continued to receive impressive recognition in the independent UK Legal Director Legal 500 year-on-year too.
Organisers said the Acquisition International 2015 Dispute Resolution Awards were designed to “commend those in the dispute sector dedicated to providing exceptional services throughout the industry”.
“These prestigious global awards identify the main players in what is a fiercely competitive market,” said a spokesman. “From a combination of peer reviews and in-house research, the judges pinpoint the most feared litigators, the most creative arbitrators and the most skilled mediators across a range of industries.
“From very small niche practices to large corporations, we ensure that the winners have been selected on merit and that the results are based on the votes received, backed up by our own in-house research efforts.”
