Wragge & Co has announced that Quentin Poole and Peter Thorne have been recognised in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 List for 2014. The list celebrates 100 innovative and inspirational legal professionals.
Senior partner Poole was one of 13 people named in the management category, in which individuals are picked out for leading the way in a rapidly changing legal market.
Poole was praised for his instrumental role in finalising a merger with City firm Lawrence Graham to create a new £170m firm, Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co.
The strength of Wragge & Co’s real-estate practice was endorsed by the inclusion of partner Thorne. Thorne, who specialises in property development and investment, is advising on London-based regeneration projects.
Poole will continue in his role as senior partner at Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co as of 1 May 2014, while Thorne is leading on the £2bn joint venture of long-standing client St Modwen Properties with Vinci Construction for the New Covent Garden Market regeneration in London’s Nine Elms.
