Averta recommended employment law firm in Chambers and Partners 2013

Chambers & Partners UK directory for 2013, one of the most respected guided to law firms and published each autumn, has recommended Averta Employment Lawyers and one of its directors Alan Jones in the Birmingham employment category.

The guide says:

“This Solihull-based operation has geared its practice towards advising company directors, managers and senior executives.”

As in previous years Averta is ranked alongside much larger firms and for its work for directors and senior individuals. David Sykes, director at Averta comments:

“We are always pleased that although we are a small operation, our performance means that we are recognised alongside well known corporate firms in the region. It shows that individuals coming to us can be confident that we can more than hold our own when advising on settlement agreements, termination packages, bonuses or other employment issues.”

Chambers also singles out Alan Jones at Averta as a key individual, reporting:

“One client says: “I was confident in his tactics and his understanding of our legal position, its merits and the likely outcome.”

Averta Employment Lawyers was set up nearly 10 years ago to bring commercial experience to advise senior executives.  Both Jones and Sykes were partners at DLP Piper, with Jones heading up the DLA employment team for many years. In 2008, Rachel Broughton joined the team from DLA Piper and is now a director at Averta. Senior associate Kate Caudwell-Hunt , a trainee solicitor and a paralegal complete the team in the Midlands. The firm also opened an office in London this year, which is headed up by London director, Anne Mannix.
