Two lawyers at Cambridge law firm Hewitsons have been inducted into the Legal 500 Hall of Fame, placing them among an elite group of individuals at the top of their respective practice areas.

Charles HewitsonThe Legal 500 Hall of Fame, which launched in the UK in 2018, highlights those who receive ‘constant praise by their clients for continued excellence’ and are at ‘the pinnacle of their profession’. Its members are chosen based on the long-term results of the prestigious Legal 500 directory, which ranks law firms, solicitors and other legal professionals annually. To qualify, the individual must have been recommended by the Legal 500 as ‘leaders’ in their respective practice areas for at least eight of the past 10 years.

From Hewitsons, those inducted in the Legal 500 Hall of Fame include partner Denise Wilkinson (top), who heads up the Cambridge agriculture and rural property team, and consultant and long-standing former partner Charles Hewitson (right), also in the same team.

Colin Jones, managing partner at Hewitsons, said: “This is a thoroughly deserved achievement, not only for Denise and Charles, who have proven themselves to be among the best in their respective areas of legal practice, but for Hewitsons as a firm. The recognition is particularly meaningful, as it is based on many years of exceptional client feedback. On behalf of Hewitsons and our clients, I would like to congratulate each of them.”
