AN ALTRINCHAM lawyer has become the first litigator in the North West to be inducted into the Legal 500 Hall of Fame.

Kit Sorrell, who is a partner at FS Legal in Altrincham, has been recognised for being at the pinnacle of the legal profession for eight of the last ten years.

He received the highest legal accolade after years of ground-breaking professional negligence work and commercial litigation.

Mr Sorrell was praised for his ‘personal attention to clients and for ensuring that he gets a good result for his clients’, as well as his ‘gravitas, tough negotiation skills and dogged determination’.

Mr Sorrell said: “I am honoured to be recognised in such a prestigious ranking and to be among some exceptional legal company.

“To be the only lawyer to enter the Hall of Fame in the North West for professional negligence is testament to the high standard of work that FS Legal continually produces.”

For over thirty years, Mr Sorrell has been instructed to represent high-profile individuals and corporations on complex, multi-million-pound claims against negligent professional advice.

His success in the court room has seen him recover huge sums in damages for his clients, including seven figure settlements.

His firm, FS Legal, has also successfully recovered millions of pounds for investors caught up in investment scams, failed tax schemes and high-profile fund collapses.
