Birketts has been named Human Resources ‘Firm of the Year (Outside London)’ at the Legal 500 UK Awards 2020.

The Awards recognise the very best firms operating in the UK market, selecting winners for their expertise, capability and proficiency. Widely acknowledged as the world’s largest referral guide, The Legal 500 is an independent body which conducts extensive interviews with law firms, in-house counsel and professionals across the industry, before awarding prizes to eligible firms based on merit. The Legal 500 also seeks to celebrate the strength of teams, rather than individual lawyers.

Jeanette Wheeler, Partner in Birketts’ Employment division reflected: “It is a huge honour to receive this Award, and this announcement caps what has already been an extremely impressive year for Birketts. We are delighted to be recognised for our range of capability and level of employment and immigration law expertise and we are proud to have been considered alongside an array of such prestigious nominees. This win is a definitive marker of our presence in the marketplace and recognition of the commitment we make to ensuring our highly valued clients receive the very best advice and service from a regional team they like and trust.”

Jonathan Agar, CEO, commented: “The Legal 500 UK Awards honour the best firms in the UK market for their expertise and it is a privilege to win in a category full of highly respected entrants. This is a wonderful opportunity for Birketts to further strengthen our position on the national stage.”
