Taylor Wessing has been crowned Law Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards 2013.
Taylor Wessing named Law Firm of the Year 2013
The Lawyer Awards ceremony took place in London last week - a celebration of excellence in the legal profession attended by more than 1,400 lawyers.
Taylor Wessing was recognised for innovation in the delivery of legal services to clients, ranging from the smallest start-up to the largest multinational, and for its strategically astute commitment to investing in new economies.
The Lawyer writes: "Under managing partner Tim Eyles, Taylor Wessing has tapped extraordinary sources of energy. It is one of the few mid-size UK firms that has had a sustained pattern of global growth, with nine new offices in seven new jurisdictions in CEE and Asia following its mergers with Austria and Singapore. And its Tech City office not only plays to the firm's traditional heartland of IP, but embeds itself well and truly within the emerging digital industries.
"Traditionally strong in mid-market corporate work, the firm has hedged itself remarkably well during the recession. Litigation is strong and an investment in a private wealth practice has reaped dividends, while its heritage businesses in IP, from patents to brand protection, has helped power expansion into Asia."
