Legal 500 calls Waterfront ‘first-rate’
Sep 29, 2015
In its latest legal firm rankings, the Legal 500 describes Waterfront as “a ‘first-rate’ specialist technology firm”, with listings in both the IT and telecoms and intellectual property categories.
We are highlighted for being “an excellent niche firm”, with partners Piers Strickland, Matthew Harris and Alison Berryman attracting personal mentions. Piers is noted for being a “first-class litigator”, while Matthew is praised for his “extremely personable and engaging” manner.
The directory goes on to mention the wide-ranging work of our specialist IP lawyers on a broad range of matters, acting for clients such as Kenwood and Glasses Direct. It also notes our active role in advising software suppliers to the financial services industry on negotiations with clients.
The Legal 500 - which sets the benchmark for quality across the UK legal market – creates the annual rankings of the most cutting edge and leading legal firms after going through a rigorous process of research with clients and legal experts.
Joint Head of Intellectual Property and Dispute Resolution, Piers Strickland said, “It’s reassuring to feature in the Legal 500 year-on-year. Although it’s neither the sole, nor the most important measure of success, it does provide a respected, external validation of the quality of the firm, which we would be foolish to ignore.”
