Six of the best for Martin-Kaye

A Telford law firm has scored six of the best in a worldwide ranking scheme that recognises the industry’s best performers.

Martin-Kaye Solicitors, in Euston Way, has been named in six sections of the Legal 500 listings which is a guide to help clients choose the legal advisers who are the cream of the crop.

Teams from the firm’s commercial litigation, commercial property, company corporate, family, personal injury and employment departments have all made the list.

Senior Partner Graham Davies said: “We’re extremely proud of our staff who have worked so hard to achieve this national recognition, and it’s a great coup for a regional firm to have been recognised in so many areas of our business.

“We believe we are one of a very small number of law firms in the Midlands to have been listed in so many categories, and it’s testimony to the commitment and dedication of our staff.”

The Legal 500 assessors said Martin-Kaye was “very well respected and regularly involved in good quality litigation”. In particular they also praised the firm for achieving a six-figure settlement in a multi-party negligence claim against a national firm of solicitors and a firm of surveyors.

Commercial Litigation expert Andrew Oranjuik was named specifically in the assessment with the assessors praising him as “authoritative”.

The Legal 500 listings have been published for more than 20 years and give a comprehensive overview of legal services worldwide.

They are compiled every year through independent researchers contacting thousands of UK law firm clients across the UK and referencing their feedback against the opinions of other commercial lawyers. The Legal 500 team also gathers information about client lists and the transactions handled by individual law firms.
