A Portsmouth-based law firm has been named one of the UK’s top legal advisers in a respected end-of-year list.
Blake Morgan, which has an office at North Harbour, was recognised for its high standards of client service.
The list, produced by the law profession publication Legal Week, lists the Portsmouth firm as one of 25 to receive the accolade of best legal adviser after it scored highly across a range of categories.
Blake Morgan is ranked number one for value for money, fee arrangements and value-added services and second for billing practice and transparency and partner-level contact.
The firm is also named one of the 10 most innovative law firms in a category which ranks firms for the use of innovations such as e-billing, automation and alternative low-cost centres.
Walter Cha, managing partner at Blake Morgan, said: ‘I am very proud that Blake Morgan has achieved such good results in this survey.
‘Client service is the driving force behind everything we do at Blake Morgan.
‘This recognition is particularly welcome because it is based on the feedback that comes directly from our clients.’
Legal Week surveyed 900 general counsel, senior in-house lawyers and procurers of legal services and asked them to rate the law firms they instruct against a range of criteria, including the standard of client service.
The best legal adviser table is made up of the 25 law firms which scored most highly.
Feedback from a minimum of 15 clients is required for a firm to qualify for this ranking.
Blake Morgan is a £78 million, top 50 UK law firm providing a breadth of legal services across the private and public sectors.
The firm also has offices in London, Oxford, Reading, Cardiff and Southampton.
