Leading South East law firm, Mayo Wynne Baxter, has once again been recognised for its excellence and outstanding practice in the prestigious Chambers UK 2009 directory.

The directory, which ranks solicitors and barristers in over 60 specialist areas of law, is compiled by carrying out thousands of interviews with lawyers and clients to seek out the top legal firms and practitioners. Mayo Wynne Baxter has been recognised in three different areas.

Inclusion in the guide is based solely on the research team’s findings as no-one can buy their way in. The rankings are assessed by technical legal ability, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by the client.

Mayo Wynne Baxter’s Clinical Negligence team is thrilled to have retained its position in Band 1 – the highest – for the second year running. The team has continued to impress commentators with its strength of advice. The 2009 directory praised the top-ranked department and its team of specialists saying: "Testament to their excellent reputation is a regular influx of referrals from other firms."

Recognition for outstanding practice was awarded to the Agriculture and Rural Affairs team, led by Simon Baillie-Hamilton, which was placed in Band 2 – moving up a place from last year’s Band 3.

Mayo Wynne Baxter has a new entry in the Travel Sector with its recently established travel industry division ranked in Band 3. Lee Hills, who joined the firm in August 2008 and his team of travel law experts, have been recognised for providing a commercially driven service that caters to all their clients’ needs.

Chris Randall, Managing Partner of Mayo Wynne Baxter, said: “I am delighted that our firm has been so highly commended in such a credible publication. Inclusion in Chambers UK is an honour as it is based purely on the opinions of clients and other legal practitioners. It is extremely gratifying to see our rankings improve every year and I am very proud of the teams’ performance.”
