We are delighted to be shortlisted, for the second year running, in the Northern Powerhouse Awards 2024. The firm has been nominated in the Transport category for ‘Firm of the Year’ whilst senior partner, Dominic Ward, has been shortlisted for ‘Transport Lawyer of the Year’.
The awards are determined based on The Legal 500’s market-leading independent research for its annual guide to the UK’s law firms, with a particular focus on client feedback.
Having specialised in shipping law for over 30 years, Dominic leads the firm’s shipping and transport practice. He has a long-established track record of handling High Court cases and international arbitrations and regularly advises clients on international agreements relating to major international logistics projects. Dominic also regularly assists companies on issues and disputes surrounding the carriage and distribution of goods by sea, road, or air.
In Legal 500’s latest guide, one client notes that ‘there is a dedicated specialist for each discipline. Their response is immediate and their help is invaluable. Having a marine law specialist outside of London is unique and the service and support supplied is excellent.’ Another client comments that ‘Dominic Ward is a marine law specialist with global knowledge and experience which is invaluable to our company. He is always quick to respond and provides an excellent service.’
Mark Pearson-Kendall, the firm’s managing partner, said: – “It was fantastic to receive outstanding client feedback and recommendations right across the firm in The Legal 500’s latest guide; very well done to Dominic and the transport team for this further recognition in the Northern Powerhouse Awards 2024.”
