One of the leading independent legal directories, Chambers UK, has just published its 2013 edition.
Our Employment team is rated for its advice to major employers on the full spread of employment law matters and has been recognised for providing "prompt and high-quality work". Our clients have said that Richard Kenyon, Head of the Employment and Pensions Group, "explains employment law risks in plain language" and "inspires confidence in senior managers, leading them to make the right decisions". Nick Thorpe has also been praised for his excellent communication skills.
Our Pensions team has also received high praise. Chambers UK states that it is "readily available, highly responsive, provides clarity of explanation and is value for money" and recognises that we are "beginning to make a mark in the pensions litigation area". David Gallagher, Head of our Pensions practice, is described as being "skilled at crafting an appropriate scope of work out of a broader brief, making this somewhat difficult legal area accessible." Michael Calvert has "excellent knowledge, is approachable, and provides what is required." Interestingly, David has also been described by sources as "a delightful human being"!
