A Wick-based business has again been recommended by two leading international directories of law firms.

The Legal 500 and Chambers have recognised BBM Solicitors in newly released rankings following their latest research.

Under five per cent of law firms are recommended by both directories. The Legal 500 recommends both Wick-based directors Jennifer Simpson and Eric Baijal individually, while Chambers recognises the team and singles Mr Baijal out for particular commendation.

Mr Baijal is the only accredited specialist in insolvency law in the Highlands, a practice he combines with leading the firm’s busy litigation practice. Mrs Simpson leads the firm’s corporate and property practices.

The Legal 500 noted: “Eric Baijal is a tremendous operator: highly knowledgeable and committed to getting results.”

Chambers said of him: “His technical knowledge and project management skills are excellent and he deals with things pragmatically.... He has built a strong domestic and international profile."

Mr Baijal said: “We are delighted that once again our team has been recognised by these two directories. In national terms we are a small firm so it is nice to see we continue to punch above our weight.

"It also gives confidence to clients in Caithness and Sutherland that they are not compromising on quality or service when they trust BBM with their work. Whether working on large international assignments or local transactions, we value the trust clients place in us and aim to repay it with quality and service in the way we act for them.”
