We are delighted to have all our Birmingham partners recommended in the 2018 Legal 500 West Midlands Employment category, which went live today.  Averta was also ranked in Tier two, which is a commendable performance for a niche firm.

According to Legal 500:

“Averta Employment Lawyers LLP is a niche practice that represents senior employees on high value claims, and is ‘commercial’, ‘pragmatic’ and ‘able to work to tight deadlines’.”

Commenting on the partners, it described Alan Jones as “’hugely experienced’ and ‘not afraid to give straight advice’.  Fellow founder David Sykes has extensive experience handling restrictive covenant and corporate related employment issues. Also recommended is Rachel Broughton, who specialises in discrimination and diversity claims.”

Strong performer in the legal market

Sykes commented: “It’s comforting for our clients, and our fellow professionals who refer clients to us, to know that each partner is acknowledged by Legal 500 as a strong performer in the legal market’
