Averta again strongly recommended by Legal 500 2023

Averta Employment Lawyers have once again been recommended as a leading law firm by legal directory, Legal 500. Averta ranks highly against other law firms, in Tier Two in the West Midlands Employment category, which is a commendable performance for a niche firm.

Practice heads David Sykes and Alan Jones have been recognised for their expertise, both being identified as leading solicitors in their category.

Alan Jones remains in the Legal 500 ‘Hall of Fame’ and David Sykes has, once again, been included as a ‘Leading Individual’. Averta’s associates Izzy Canning and Andrew Lester, were also praised for their work as was consultant Alan Dark.

According to Legal 500 testimonials:

“Alan Jones and David Sykes are an effective double act – different but complimentary. They provide a full service on exits, restrictions, contract disputes etc rather than being too narrow in their approach or too broad.”

The praise is not limited to the partners however, and the directory comments; “‘One gets the very clear impression when dealing with the team at Averta that this is a well trained team which provides professionalism and technical expertise at the highest level which is totally focused on the client’s objectives. The team is supportive and immediately responsive whilst the cost is very reasonable indeed. They will provide very sharp, honest and down to earth advice on the challenges ahead so that decisions on the way forward are fully informed. One certainly wants Averta on their side.”

The directory also mentions how well the firm provided advice during the Covid lockdown:

“‘Efficient, professional service and communications maintained during the difficult Covid lockdown period. Always available however difficult the circumstances. Alan Jones and Andrew Lester have continued to provide strong emotional support through difficult times as well as maintaining their professionalism‘.”

David Sykes commented: “ It’s so gratifying to be consistently highly ranked in Legal 500 and I would like to thank our clients and professional colleagues for the positive feedback and for taking the time to communicate it.”
