A PORTSMOUTH law firm has been tipped as an industry leader in this year’s Legal 500 survey.

Blake Lapthorn, based in Compass Road, North Harbour, has seen a record number of its departments moving up a tier in the survey, which provides worldwide coverage of legal service providers in over 100 countries.

The firm’s services, including aviation, mediators, commercial contracts, franchising and intellectual property, performed very strongly in the rankings.

A total of 39 Blake Lapthorn services were recommended in the survey’s league tables.

Walter Cha, managing partner at Blake Lapthorn, said of the survey: ‘It is pleasing to see that what we have done in recent years has been recognised and commended.

He added: ‘We shall continue to build our capacity and capability for the benefit of our clients.’
