International law firm Gowling WLG has been named in five legal categories in The Times Best Law Firms 2020, listed for Banking & Finance, Commercial Property, Company & Commercial, Energy and Renewables, and Landlord & Tenant.
Building on the success of the firm in 2019, for which the firm was ranked in three categories, the latest ranking results identify the best 200 firms in England and Wales, in 31 categories of legal practice, as commended by other lawyers following a survey of the solicitors' profession and in-depth analysis by law professionals.
The news comes following a year of success for the firm's Real Estate, Energy, Projects and Natural Resources, Banking and Finance, and Commercial teams, with each being ranked by leading Directories Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 as in the top tier of firms in London and the West Midlands.
Produced by The Times in co-operation with market researcher Statista, the entirely peer-selected results are based on one question: 'Other than your own firm, which practice would you instruct in this area of work?'
Creating a unique peer to peer snapshot of the legal profession in England and Wales today, the findings for 2020 assess which law firms are top of the tree in their specialist fields.
