Anthony Lyons, head of licensing and partner at law firm Kuits, has been inducted into the Legal 500 Hall of Fame.
The Legal 500 UK, a research publication that analyses and ranks the abilities of law firms across the country, introduces its Hall of Fame for the first time in 2018, highlighting lawyers who are at the pinnacle of their profession.
Anthony met the criteria for entry having been recognised as a Legal 500 elite leading lawyer for eight of the last ten years, and is one of only two licensing lawyers in the whole of the UK to have received the accolade.
Praised by Legal 500 for his ‘second to none’ knowledge of the licensing trade, Anthony continues to be a key driver in the development of Kuits’ leisure and hospitality specialism, with a national client base and reputation.
The Manchester Law Society also presented Anthony with their Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year, recognising his unrivalled impact and lasting contribution to the legal services market across his 40-year career.
Executive partner Robert Levy said: “In entering the Legal 500 Hall of Fame, Anthony joins an exclusive group of elite legal professionals recognised for their long-term commitment to the sector.
“Anthony continues to be a fantastic role model and inspiration for all our lawyers. This accolade is well-deserved and showcases his sustained dedication and drive to support and develop the leisure industry in the North West and beyond.”
