Walker Morris LLP is a corporate law firm that continues to attract a growing national and international client base from its base in Leeds. Its single-site strategy has enabled it to attract the best legal expertise while offering its clients cost-effective rates.
With 500 staff, including 49 partners, it is ranked as a leading UK top 100 law firm.
Recognised for its ethos of strong multidisciplinary teamwork and straightforward advice, its lawyers' focus on delivering what they promise, coupled with a high level of commercial awareness, continues to attract significant new clients.
Working with a global network of like-minded firms, it believes that clients' interests in overseas matters are best served by introducing them to the right overseas firms for the matter in hand, rather than adopting a 'one size fits all' approach.
Walker Morris continues to invest in its specialist expertise having made a number of lateral hires and internal promotions in key growth areas. Recent hires included competition director Shaukat Ali (7 April 2014), restructuring and insolvency director Gawain Moore (12 December 2013) and five appointments to its real-estate group including former Clarion partner James Lawson (6 December 2013).
