For the seventh year running, AMJ has retained its top ranking in Chambers Global, a leading international guide to lawyers and law firms around the world. Chambers Global conducts independent research into the legal markets of 190 countries, identifying the leading lawyers and law firms through interviews with thousands of lawyers and their clients. The Firm won the select Band 1 ranking for its corporate law practice, and Band 2 for litigation in Chambers 2017 edition released mid-March.

Additionally, four AMJ partners and special counsel retained the ‘leading lawyer’ ranking they have held for successive years. Chambers singles out managing partner, Mansoor Malik as sole star individual in the jurisdiction for the seventh year in succession. Malik is ranked for both his dispute resolution and corporate practices. Chambers describes him as “widely respected due to his masterful practice in finance, energy and projects matters.” “His practice in Islamic finance also earns great respect in the local market.” Commentators highlight that: “He is extremely knowledgeable in terms of the general legal landscape and he is able to provide holistic views thanks to his general experience and great network.”

Marcus Pery, banking and finance partner, retained his Band 2 ranking with clients commenting: “He’s switched on, knowledgeable, experienced and accessible,” and: “He’s been a key partner to our business.” Two lawyers also improved their individual rankings; Ardeshir Patel, corporate and capital markets partner moved up to Band 2. Clients describe him as ” very knowledgeable, technically solid and very easy to work with. He is truly solution-oriented.” Graham Mouat, special counsel in the commercial department, rose to Band 3.

Earlier this year, AMJ again achieved top-tier ranking for financial and corporate work in the IFLR1000, another leading global directories for financial and corporate law firms. The IFLR named Malik, Patel, Pery and Mouat as leading lawyers for their track record of innovative work on landmark transactions in the preceding twelve months.
