Four Bristol-based lawyers from national law firm Bevan Brittan have been singled out as Global Leaders in procurement law, after being included in Who’s Who Legal 2022, a prestigious international guide to the legal profession.

The four colleagues from Bevan Brittan’s procurement practice are included in the guide’s government contracts section, which is based on feedback from lawyers and in-house counsel from around the world.

Emily Heard, who heads Bevan Brittan’s Procurement practice, has successfully been included in the guide for a number of years, together with consultant Susie Smith. Procurement partners Laura Brealey and Fran Mussellwhite are included in Who’s Who Legal for the second consecutive year.

Who’s Who Legal is a highly selective guide to the legal profession, with a rigorous selection method that results in fewer than half of the lawyers nominated being included. Individuals must continue to receive strong and regular feedback to maintain their listing and every listed practitioner's listing is reviewed annually as part of the research process.

“This success is down to the hard work of the procurement team in delivering innovative solutions for our clients across a number of sectors including waste and energy, transport, health, education, housing, construction and defence,” said Emily Heard. “Who’s Who Legal bases its listings on conversations with practitioners worldwide, who make recommendations from personal experience. Receiving this recognition on an international level from our peers means a great deal.”

These positive results come after Bevan Brittan announced its ninth consecutive year of growth, confirming it had exceeded £60m in revenue for the first time.

In May, the firm announced it had promoted 10% of its lawyers, with 32 colleagues successful across its four offices, including five new Partners, a new Legal Director, 13 Senior Associates and 13 new Associates. The firm also continues to attract talented lateral hires to the business.
