LAWYERS at south coast firm Blake Morgan are celebrating being named as among the best in their field in the Legal 500 directory.

The 2014 directory, published today, reviews the strengths of lawyers across the UK and makes recommendations based on how they are seen by clients and their peers.

Six partners from the firm’s Portsmouth and Southampton offices were named as ‘leading individuals’ and more than 30 of its solicitors in the region were recommended by the directory.

The listings cover the year from November 2013, prior to the formation of Blake Morgan by the merger of the law firms Morgan Cole and Blake Lapthorn in July 2014.

Among the Blake Morgan lawyers recommended by the Legal 500, several who work across Southampton and Portsmouth are singled out for individual praise.
