This year, as in previous years, Averta tops tier three of human resources firms in the West Midlands, an impressive performance for a niche firm against much larger players. This year Legal 500 comments that: “Niche practice Averta Employment Lawyers specialises in high-value work for senior individuals and some businesses, and has the ‘very experienced’ Alan Jones and David Sykes. Highlights included achieving a settlement of £750,000 for the CEO of a large multinational business.” Managing partner, David Sykes, said: “We are delighted to be recognised for the quality of our advice by our clients and by other law firms.  It’s a real vote of confidence in us and it lets our clients know that even though we are a small firm, the advice they get is second to none.” Alan Jones is also listed as one of the West Midlands’ leading individuals. Legal 500 classifies the West Midlands as comprising Birmingham and the surrounding counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.
