Cartwright King celebrates latest Legal 500 rankings.

BIRMINGHAM law firm Cartwright King is celebrating after The Legal 500 UK 2013 Guide listed it as a top tier firm in five practice areas, as well as recommending it in a further six areas.

Cartwright King, which is a national practice with offices in seven cities, is recommended as a top tier firm in the crime, fraud and licensing category in the West Midlands as well as the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber. It is also ranked as a top tier firm for health & safety and immigration.

The firm is endorsed in a further six practice areas including health and safety, immigration and transport for the West Midlands.

Three of Cartwright King's solicitors are named in the elite list of outstanding lawyers nationwide: Andrew Brammer, Mark Wilson and Michael Thurston who are all business defence specialists. A further 20 are recommended in the areas of the law in which they specialise.

A number of the firm's solicitors are individually recommended in the West Midlands. These are David Roy and Mandip Kumar for crime, Andrew Brammer and Lynn Bleakley for health and safety; John Scruton and Rupert Hawke for immigration and Andrew Brammer for transport.

Cartwright King's managing director Rupert Hawke, is thrilled with the news which marks a significant improvement in the firm's standing since the guide was last published twelve months ago.

"We are delighted that the firm has been placed top in so many areas in the new Legal 500 Guide, both on a national and regional level and that more of our solicitors than ever have been individually named and recommended in their particular areas of specialism. The firm began life in 2000 as a small regional legal practice with one office but its strategy of focusing on specialist areas of the law, employing top quality people and expanding geographically has meant that it has now become a well regarded player on a national level.

"Since this year's Guide was compiled we have strengthened our family team headed by Fiona Lazenby with the recruitment of eight family specialists from Challinors. We have also recently recruited Richard Murray, a criminal defence lawyer and Higher Court Advocate, who has become director at the Birmingham office. I am confident therefore that when next year's Guide is published, even more of our specialisms and people will be acknowledged."
