MJM recognised by Legal 500

Law firm MJM Ltd has been ranked in four practice areas by international law firm rating agency, The Legal 500.

The legal directory has rated the firm in the corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, real estate and trust/private client practice areas.

The newest directors of the firm, Jennifer Haworth of the dispute resolution team and Jeremy Leese of the corporate team, have been recognised as “next generation partners”.

Directors Fozeia Rana-Fahy, dispute resolution, and Denis de Frias, property, have been recognised as “leading individuals”, while Brian Holdipp, recently promoted to counsel, has been acknowledged as a “rising star”.

MJM's teams were also ranked, with the property team once again recognised as tier 1 as an industry leader. Additionally, within the highly competitive practice areas of corporate and commercial and dispute resolution, MJM's teams achieved a strong tier 2 ranking, the firm said.

The Legal 500 rank law firms following rigorous research based on feedback from clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers.

MJM's clients value and appreciate the firm for “the quality of each of its legal practitioners. The practice always ensures that it employs people of the highest quality and has not traded quality for expansion” while also being able to “bring all parties to the same place quickly and reduce legal costs without compromising the terms of the deal”.

Ms Haworth said: “It is wonderful to see both our individual attorneys and our teams being recognised internationally. At MJM, we pride ourselves on providing excellent service to our clients and are delighted to see our continued hard work and dedication recognised by a well-respected agency, The Legal 500.”

She added: “This past year has been a time of growth and development for the firm and we look forward to building on existing relationships with our valued clients and developing new opportunities and client relationships in pursuit of the firm's mission to deliver excellence in legal services.”
