This global recognition follows last year's accolade of our employment team being named ‘the most highly nominated European firm’ by Who’s Who Legal in 2017.
‘We are honoured to be awarded the Law Firm of the Year for Labour, Employment & Pensions by Who’s Who Legal’ reflecting our global client base’, said Chair Michael Burd and Divisional Managing Partner James Davies, in a joint statement. ‘Having been at the forefront of employment law for over 20 years, this award recognises the excellence of our team providing incomparable client service on the cutting edge of employment law on an international basis.
Covering 35 practice areas annually, Who’s Who Legal selects the leading lawyers and law firms in each area from across the world. Winners are determined through Who’s Who Legal’s existing research to see which firms and individuals have the most nominees and received the most votes from the clients and private practitioners canvassed. There is no submissions process or shortlist; honorees are based solely on research by Who’s Who Legal.
Further demonstrating the success and international excellence of the team, last year’s global guide lists ten of our employment lawyers in the Who’s Who Legal global guide together with Michael Burd and James Davies being named in the top five Thought Leaders in Europe a year after Michael Burd received the overall Who’s Who Legal: Thought Leader Award for Labour and Employment in 2017.
