The prestigious list from leading UK legal magazine The Lawyer celebrates the most innovative and creative lawyers in the UK from private practice, in-house and the Bar.

Stephen Bennett, partner, was recognised for representing Olaplex in its win over L'Oréal in the Supreme Court. According to the Lawyer, Stephen "has gained a reputation in the market as a standout patent litigator whose cases have changed the law on multiple occasions" and "his most recent triumphs are only the latest in a garlanded career".
