52 lawyers from national practice Colin Biggers & Paisley have been recognised in the 15th Best Lawyers Awards across 17 disciplines - the largest win for the practice to date.

Partner and Head of Corporate and Dispute Resolution Jon Meadmore said the practice's recognition was reflective of the high standards and talent that comprise Colin Biggers & Paisley, with the awards forming part of one of the oldest publications in the legal profession.

"I am incredibly proud of my colleagues who have been named in this year's Best Lawyers Awards once again, with listings signalling legal expertise, ethics and professionalism of the highest calibre - values I wholeheartedly see in action each and every day at the practice," Mr Meadmore said.

"This is the 11th year we've been listed, with only one partner listed in 2011, so the growth over the last decade has been exceptional. I'm very excited to watch the practice move from strength to strength - from our talented graduates who are starting this exciting chapter through to partners and senior lawyers who have dedicated years to the profession."
