James Stewart was also recognised as one of only three family lawyers on the list of Top 10 London Super Lawyers 2015 while Jane Craig was ranked in this year’s Top 100 and in the Top 50: Women London Super Lawyers list.
Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a solicitor-rating service aimed at bringing visibility to outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Originated in the United States in 1991, Super Lawyers began selecting lawyers in the London area in 2013 and all selected lawyers are published online at SuperLawyers.co.uk.
Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third-party research and each candidate is assessed on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual basis and the results are published both in the Super Lawyers Magazine and the Telegraph Magazine.
Commenting on the team's success, Jane Craig, who heads the family practice at Penningtons Manches, said: "We are delighted that our specialist domestic and international family law expertise has been recognised by our peers in this way, particularly in view of the stringent research criteria adopted by Thomson Reuters. We are also very proud that James Stewart is one of the Top 10 lawyers who received the highest point totals in the London - United Kingdom nomination, research and blue ribbon review process.”
