Byrne and Partners LLP recognised as a leading litigation firm by the Legal 500
Byrne and Partners has once again been ranked as a leading fraud and litigation firm in the 2012 Legal 500 UK guide. The firm was singled out for its combination of “boutique size and reasonable charges with Magic Circle quality”.
The firm was ranked in the first tier for white collar crime, with Michael Potts described as “extremely bright and tactically astute” and David Byrne noted for his representation of former iSoft Group director Stephen Graham. Matthew Frankland was also recognised as a leading individual.
The civil team was noted for its “tough and resourceful litigators” and ranked in the second tier for civil fraud and sixth tier for commercial litigation. Nicola Boulton and Yvonne Jefferies were described as “highly intelligent”, Bernard O’Sullivan as “hard working and commercial” and Elizabeth Seborg as “well regarded”. The team’s recovery of $425m from Rosneft Oil (on behalf of Yukos Capital) and recent successful discharge of a $75m freezing order (on behalf of Indonesia’s Humpuss Group) were singled out for mention.
