Lupton Fawcett’s Employment Team collects top UK award
We are extremely proud to announce that our Employment Team has just been named the UK’s Top Regional HR / Employment Law Team for 2017 by The Legal 500.
Not only have we been named the top team in the region (Yorkshire & The Humber), we have also been named the top regional team in the UK.
The other firms shortlisted were Addleshaw Goddard (North West), Pinsent Masons (West Midlands), Brown Jacobson (East Midlands), Burges Salmon (South West), Taylor Vintner (East Anglia) and DC Law (South East).
The Legal 500 said they were impressed by
- Our strength in depth (8 lawyers, 5 of whom are directors, which makes us one of the largest and most experienced Employment Teams in Yorkshire);
- Our coverage across the region (lawyers in Leeds, Sheffield and York); and
- The range and quality of our clients (from senior executives and owner managed businesses to plc’s and not for profit organisations)
For those who may be unaware, the Team covers all aspects of employment law, and over the course of the past 12 months has developed niche offerings in relation to Holiday pay issues, National Minimum Wage investigations, Data Protection, Gender pay gap reporting, and Regulatory matters.
In addition, we have increased the number of training courses we provide. Due to the popularity of our ILM accredited “Introduction to Employment Law” training day, we have recently introduced a follow-up course “Introduction to Employment Law 2”. The feedback from those who have attended the training days is usually “excellent”. For this reason, and as they help employers to avoid discrimination claims, they usually sell out.
Our annual free employment law update seminars will be run in Leeds, Sheffield and York in March 2017. If you would like to attend, please register as spaces are limited.
We are running our training days throughout the year at all of our offices. If you are interested in attending, please contact Emma Holehan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In the meantime, if you would like to discuss any HR / employment law issues, please let us know.
