Legal 500 Recommends Crowell & Moring as a Top UK Law Firm in Asset Based Lending

London – October 9, 2019: Crowell & Moring has been listed among the top UK law firms in The Legal 500 UK 2020 for its work in asset based lending.

In addition, partner Andrew Knight has been recognized as a leading individual for his work in the London asset based lending market and is described as ‘very knowledgeable and experienced.’ Knight’s expertise combines with the team’s ‘strong lender ties with numerous US banks and independent UK market participants’ to produce a ‘significant flow of work.’

Legal 500 also praised Cathryn Williams, noting that she has an ‘excellent’ reputation, especially in the area of formal insolvency procedures, which received particular endorsement.

The official ranking highlights the London office’s recent growth as a major factor in the firm’s performance, particularly this year’s numerous partner hires, but also drew attention to the high-profile client list.

Crowell & Moring is undergoing a period of rapid expansion, under the leadership of managing partner Robert Weekes. The team has bolstered its expertise with six new partner hires in as many months, two of which are recognized in the latest Legal 500 rankings.

The Legal 500 series is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal referral guide with more than 300,000 sources surveyed and interviewed globally.

Robert Weekes, London managing partner, comments:
“We are delighted to be included again in this year’s Legal 500, which stands as testament to the quality of the team that has joined our London office; we have committed to continue to grow in London and quality attracts quality. We have sought to build on strong foundations and are particularly pleased that two of our new partner hires for this year, Andrew and Cathryn, have been singled out for their impressive work.”

“This is just the start of our journey here in London. We have much more to come as we continue to expand our team and to diversify our offering to provide the highest quality in client service.”
