Roger Bull, Burges Salmon’s Managing Partner, says: “We are delighted to have gone from receiving five nominations last year to eleven nominations in the 2020 Legal 500 UK Awards. These Awards are special as nominations are determined through feedback from in-house counsel, other law firms and barristers. To receive such independent industry-wide recognition across a number of strategically significant practices and individuals within our business is fantastic news. Very well done to all of our teams and to those individuals that have been shortlisted".

The annual Legal 500 UK Awards recognise the very best practitioners and firms operating within the UK market.  Award recipients are selected based on months of research and interviews conducted with in-house counsel, firms and chambers across the country.
