Our multi-jurisdictional capabilities have been consistently endorsed year-on-year in the legal directories, being top-ranked in the latest editions of Chambers Global as "an exceptional firm". Many of our local practices also have leading rankings in their jurisdictions and are award winning. 30 of our partners and associates are recognised as leaders in their field across many prominent directories (Chambers Legal 500, PLC, Who's Who, and others).
Our team is renowned for being at the forefront of using innovative tools to assist clients to meet their needs and challenges on HR-related matters.
