Keystone CEO James Knight and the firm’s latest FinTech recruit, Adrian Shedden have been included in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 list for 2018.

The list, produced by the country’s leading legal publication “gathers together the best lawyers in the UK – the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar.” It is then broken down into specific practice areas, further identifying the most outstanding lawyers in their respective fields.

James Knight who founded Keystone Law, is recognised in the Leadership category following on from the firm’s continued growth, along with its AIM listing in November 2017. The magazine explains that “Keystone has been on quite a journey over the past 15 years…It may only really be getting started.”

Meanwhile the firm’s latest FinTech recruit, Adrian Shedden has been included in the Disrupters category, having risen through the ranks and positioning himself amongst the major players in the space.

In 2017, Keystone Law climbed into The Lawyer UK 200 upper half for the first time, joining the top 100 largest law firms in the country by revenue.

James commented:

“Whilst I am flattered and rather humbled to be included in this eminent list, I am particularly delighted to be accompanied by my colleague Adrian Shedden and to see that Keystone is one of just 11 law firms in the UK to have multiple lawyers in the Hot 100. I believe this says a lot about how far we, as a firm, have come.”
