Legal experts take top award

Lawyers from a Telford firm are proving they can compete with some of the most high profile legal teams in the UK after winning a prestigious award.

Commercial litigation experts from Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Euston Way, have been named in the 2016 Dispute Resolution Awards as the best for SME Contract Disputes.

Run by Acquisition International Magazine, the awards were created to showcase the very best lawyers and professional advisers across the country.

And it’s not the first time they have recognised the Telford practice.

Andrew Oranjuik who leads the commercial litigation team at Martin-Kaye said: “We’re very proud to have received this latest award, and it is confirmation once again that we really do punch above our weight when it comes to the competition.

“It also shows that the very best legal advice is available outside the major cities in the UK thanks to practices like Martin-Kaye.”

The company has previously been awarded the Excellence in Contract Focused Commercial Litigation title, and the Midlands Litigators of the Year award.

“Our specialist commercial litigation team already has an excellent reputation for its effective, straight-talking advice, and to be recognised yet again on the national stage is sure to raise our profile even further,” said Andrew.

“It’s particularly pleasing as we are one of the very few law firms outside the major cities to develop a specialist team like this, and our commitment to the sector is obviously paying off.”

Martin-Kaye’s commercial litigators deal with a wide range of claims including partnership and shareholder disputes, disputes over intellectual property, professional negligence, and disputes in property, contract, construction and IT cases.

The Dispute Resolution Awards highlight the work carried out by the main players in this fiercely competitive area. They use an exhaustive process of reviews and in-house research to reward the most respected litigators, arbitrators and mediators across the business world. All kinds of firms are nominated from the smallest niche practices to the largest corporations.
