Bell Lax has once again punched above its weight with the legal directories this year.
Our 2017 Legal 500 entry reads:
"Litigation boutique Bell Lax Limited is a ‘strong local practice that can hold its own with the city centre firms in its specialist areas’. The team acts for claimants and defendants in a wide variety of commercial litigation and arbitration, and is noted both for its ‘broader knowledge of the law than many comparable firms’, and also for its ability to provide innovative funding solutions for commercial cases. Specialist areas include director and shareholder disputes, professional negligence claims, and contract disputes. The practice is led by Richard Kerry and includes consultant Peter Lax, whose ‘advice is always considered and correct’, and solicitor advocate Liam Owen, who ‘displays great tenacity and understands how judges think’."
In Chambers and Partners 2018, Bell Lax is a "Noted Firm" in the Midlands. Peter Lax is described as “very knowledgeable and very thoughtful”; and Liam Owen is ranked as an “Associate to Watch” and described as “confident, responsive, knowledgeable and commercially aware”.
