01 October 2019

The Legal 500 UK 2020 rankings (released 26 September 2019) once again recognise Birketts’ regional dominance.

Birketts has been recommended as a ‘top-tier firm’ in 37 practice areas and in total the firm received 53 rankings. Furthermore, 51 lawyers are listed as elite 'Leading lawyers', 13 lawyers are listed as 'Next Generation Partners', 39 lawyers are listed as 'Rising stars' and 117 lawyers are recommended by Legal 500.

Commenting on the results, Jonathan Agar, Chief Executive Officer at Birketts said: "This year’s Legal 500 rightly recognises that Birketts occupies a premier position in the East of England given the breadth of its property and corporate deals, as well as the diversity of its private client advisory work. Additionally, Birketts provides a range of international services to clients based in the UK and to those abroad with financial or business interests in the UK and Birketts has one of the leading shipping and international trade teams in the country."

Jonathan concluded: “2019 was another remarkable year of growth and progress for Birketts. We continue to develop a business that operates beyond the region’s boundaries that is contemporary in both outlook and approach and is recognised for the highest levels of client experience.”

Birketts recently announced a record turnover of £54.9m - a 12% increase on last year and a new record for the firm – and won the prestigious UK Regional Law Firm of the Year title at the Lawyer Awards.
