The Lawyer Hot 100 2016

Partners Alison Levitt QC and Sharon Tan and CSO Nick West (who joined this month) have been named in The Lawyer Hot 100 2016.

The Lawyer Hot 100 gathers together the best lawyers in the business – the cream of the crop from in-house, private practice and the bar. The list this year features 49 female lawyers, 10 barristers, and two recently-elected managing partners alongside top class lawyers in litigation, finance, energy, real estate, life sciences, and regulation.

"Nobody in the UK knows more about private prosecution work than Mishcon de Reya’s Alison Levitt QC. Indeed, she literally wrote the guidebook to it while she was principal legal adviser to the DPP. Now, 18 months after she launched Mishcon’s first business crime unit, Levitt has used her specialism to forge the group’s impressive reputation in the white-collar defence, fraud and money laundering space, combining civil and criminal work to create the last piece in the puzzle for Mishcon’s burgeoning client base."

"With one of the largest employment law teams in the City, last year Mishcon de Reya hired McDermott Will & Emery partner Sharon Tan, and tasked her with broadening the firm’s corporate client base around the world." Read more about Sharon's inclusion and view the Employment category here.

"One of the first big lateral moves of 2016 came in January, when Mishcon de Reya hired the London general manager of alternative resourcing business Axiom. Nick West, who joined Mishcon in the purpose-built new role of chief strategy ­officer, helped transform Axiom’s UK profile, client base and revenue, in particular with the trailblazing use of technology."
