The Lawyer’s Litigation Tracker 2018 – Congratulations to the Litigation team for their rise up the rankings!
Our litigation team are delighted to announce that we have been ranked in The Lawyer’s Litigation Tracker 2018. We are placed 10th by case days (which can indicate the importance and complexity of a litigation) and 9th by number of cases.
The rankings are released as a result of research conducted by The Lawyer, in which their team scrutinised over 2,400 judgments in the English courts during 2017 to find out which firms, chambers and barristers are most in demand. As well as ranking litigation activity by case type and client sector, the report also reveals where in the world clients are coming from to litigate in English courts.
In addition to the firm’s ranking, the team were delighted to see that John Almeida has been ranked in 1st place in the ‘Most active partner by case’ ranking, with Camilla Hart and Graeme Kleiner also ranked.
Duncan Elson, partner and head of the Litigation and Dispute Resolution division said: “We are delighted that the litigation practice and John, Camilla and Graeme’s cases have been recognised in The Lawyer’s Litigation Tracker. It shows the hard work the whole team has been doing in the past year and is a testament to our leading and long standing reputation in the English courts.”
