We’re delighted to announce our CEO, Ed Fletcher, has been named by The Lawyer in their prestigious Hot 100 UK lawyer list for 2017!

Ed beat off stiff competition to be named as a top management figure in the legal sector, in The Lawyer magazine’s ‘The Hot 100’. He was praised for being at the forefront of legal market change and leading the sector in tech innovation. This was demonstrated through our recent partnership with the University of Liverpool to research and develop Artificial Intelligence solutions for the law industry as well as being named in the “Technology 10”.

The Hot 100 list is a celebration of extraordinary lawyers based in the UK who have completed groundbreaking work within the last year. The list, published every year, follows months of research into candidates’ client work and contribution to their firms and the profession.

Ed talked about how pleased he was to be named: “I am delighted to be recognised in the Hot 100, alongside 13 other leading lawyers specifically paving the way in law firm management. We’ve achieved a lot over the last year, investing heavily in our workforce and setting up a new office in Manchester, in our quest to become a Top 100 law firm by 2018 and to ensure people are at the heart of everything we do. This accolade shows we are heading in the right direction and sends a great message internally and to our external stakeholders that the organisation is in safe hands.”

Congratulations to Ed and everyone mentioned in the list!
