Peter Binning of Corker Binning has been named Global Business Crime Defence Lawyer of the Year in the 2013 Who’s Who Legal Awards.

This is the first time he has been recognised, and he received more votes from clients and peers in the course of our research than any other individual worldwide.

The awards are based on a number of factors, including general feedback received in the research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in their favour.

The winners are formally announced in The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers 2013, a compendium edition of all the individual Who’s Who Legal publications, which is released in June and covers 32 practice areas and over 100 countries.

Editor in chief Callum Campbell said, “Peter Binning received unrivalled levels of praise our sources both in private practice and in house across the globe, and we are delighted to declare him the leading lawyer in the world for Business Crime Defence work.”

Who’s Who Legal lists only the leading lawyers in each field, based exclusively on the findings of an independent six-month research process that encompasses feedback from private practitioners, clients and other experts in the sector. It is impossible to buy entry into this publication, only lawyers who score most highly according to our independent international research criteria are listed.

The compendium edition is distributed free of charge to thousands of corporate counsel and private practice lawyers from around the world. The information is also available on www.WhosWhoLegal.com and is updated daily.
