The Legal 500 UK 2015 ranks Cains as a ‘top-tier’ law firm

Cains has been ranked as a ‘top-tier’ law firm across eight practice areas in The Legal 500 UK 2015, widely regarded as one of the leading guides to law firms.

This year’s issue of the independent guide also names seven Cains lawyers as “leading individuals” in its list of outstanding lawyers.

The Isle of Man-based firm is ranked as “Tier 1” in banking and finance, commercial, commercial property, dispute resolution, insurance and pensions, as well as investment funds and capital markets. It is also top-ranked in shipping, aviation and space and is praised as “fast, reliable and responsive” within those areas.

The UK edition of The Legal 500 Series also gives top-tier recognition to Cains’ London office as an offshore firm operating in the city.

Cains’ Isle of Man office is further recommended in the areas of employment and private client and trusts, along with the e-gaming sector.

Cains’ Managing Director, Andrew Corlett OBE said:

“It is good to see Cains appearing in the top tier in all our core areas of practice and particularly pleasing to see such a large number of our lawyers across a wide spectrum being individually recognised, some for the first time.”

Those honoured as leading lawyers include Andrew Corlett OBE, Ben Hughes, Jeremy Walton, Peter Clucas, Seth Caine and Tim Shepherd, along with Richard Vanderplank who is recognized in two practice areas.

A total of 18 Cains lawyers are recommended in the guide’s editorial, with Mike Edwards and the ‘talented, experienced and diligent’ Steven Quayle being highly recommended.
