The 2017 edition of The Legal 500 - the authoritative guide to the UK's leading law firms - has just been published and we are proud to announce that our employment team has retained its status as a top tier law firm for employment services.
The Legal 500 is essentially the clients' guide to the best law firms in the UK and is widely regarded as offering a definitive judgement of law firm capabilities. The guide ranks firms into tiers, with tier 1 being the highest ranking. We are thrilled that Howes Percival's employment team has once again achieved tier 1 status.
