Two Hamlins partners named by Thomson Reuters as 2013 “Super Lawyers”

Laurence Gilmore and Christopher Hutchings, partners in Hamlins’ entertainment media and IP department, have both been selected this week as “Super Lawyers” in the Thomson Reuters List, representing the top 5% of lawyers in their fields of expertise.

This is the first time the publisher has compiled a list of leading UK lawyers, following two decades of success for its US counter-part. The publisher says of the new list:

‘The solicitors on the list exemplify excellence in the practice of law.’

Super Lawyers selects solicitors using a rigorous, multistage process in which peer nominations and evaluations are combined with our independent research.The selection process is thorough. Nominations come from solicitors, who list the top solicitors they’ve personally observed in action. Researchers then evaluate candidates by 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. The solicitors with the highest totals from each category are finally selected.

Laurence Gilmore is named in the Media and Entertainment Law category, whilst Christopher Hutchings is listed as a leading expert in Defamation Law.
