Recognition of expertise across BPE Solicitors

For a fifth consecutive year, eight teams at BPE Solicitors has either retained or improved their ranking in the Legal 500 annual rankings.

The latest rankings have moved BPE’s Intellectual Property team into Tier two, while every other team including Corporate & Commercial, Employment, Commercial Property and Private Wealth have retained their positions in Tiers 1 and 2.

Further celebrations are required for the team members of Tier 1 ranked Commercial Litigation. Philip Radford retains his position as Leading Individual and is joined by Riyaz Jariwalla at that level, while both John Carter and Peter Knibbs have been named Next Generation Partners in recognition of their expertise in the fields of professional negligence, commercial disputes and contentious probate.

Jo Bewley (Commercial Property), Louise Grzasko (Corporate), Heyma Holmes (Employment) and Riyaz Jariwalla (Intellectual Property) have retained their positions as Leading Individuals and both Sarah Kenshall (IT and Telecoms) and Chris Aldridge (Employment) have been named as Next Generation Partners again.

Commenting on these new rankings, BPE’s Managing Partner Antonia Shield said “I am delighted with these rankings and am thrilled that our Litigation team have received much deserved recognition of their expertise. We have so much talent, specialist knowledge and commerciality that we use to give clients first rate advice, and these rankings reflect just this”.
