Commercial law firm Carson McDowell has emerged as the most lauded Northern Irish law firm in the latest Chambers UK Guide.

The 2016 edition of the industry bible describes the Belfast-based practice Carson McDowell as a band one firm in more practice areas than any of its rivals. And the firm's 25 partners are all included.

Carson McDowell charts in 22 different practice areas - with 15 areas receiving the highest possible classification.

Three of the firm's other lawyers are also recommended, along with the partners.

Managing partner Michael Johnston said: "We are delighted to have such a large number of recommendations in the Chambers UK Guide 2016 and would like to thank all of our clients who took time to provide feedback.

"With 28 lawyers ranked as leaders in their fields, it is evident that our teams are made up of the best legal talent."

Carson McDowell said it acts for many of Northern Ireland's top home-grown companies.

During 2014, it acted in major corporate transactions including the sale of Slieve Rushen Wind Farm to Platina Partners LLP, the acquisition of Cliffe Medical by the Eakin Group and the acquisition of Whale Pumps by Brunswick Corporation.
