Pitmans recognised for top City quality lawyers in Legal 500

Posted on: 17/10/2017

Pitmans has retained all of its top tier rankings and achieved 42 lawyer recommendations in the latest Legal 500 results.

The annual independent guide, widely recognised as the definitive list of leading UK law firms, has again ranked Pitmans in the first tier for its core practice areas of litigation, pensions and commercial property as well as insolvency and corporate recovery, banking and IT advisory.

Pitmans is recommended in 22 practice areas and quoted as having ‘the skills and experience of a City firm’ with ‘a more personal service than larger firms’.

In total, 42 of Pitmans lawyers are recommended, including 8 new entrants this year: Claire Collings, Jim Meechan, Stacey Jones, Jenny Littlewood, Sheilagh Magee, Marcus McCluggage, Sarah Potter and Marie Evrard.

The coveted ‘Next generation lawyers’ category, introduced this year to recognise partners or experienced non-partners who make a material difference to the firm’s offering, welcomes five of Pitmans team – Phil Smith, Will Richmond-Coggan, Oliver Pilkington, David Williams and Laurel Knight.
