The Legal 500 2021: Firm listing

We’re delighted to have achieved a firm listing in The Legal 500 2021 for Leeds, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire! After four years of hard work, we’re straight in at Band 4 and rubbing shoulders with some regional heavyweights. Fantastic to see Tom Watkins’ name in lights too with his well-deserved recognition as a ‘next generation partner’.

The Legal 500 analyses the capabilities and strengths of law firms across the world and updates its rankings every year. Firms who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice are ranked based on feedback from clients, submissions by firms and extensive research by The Legal 500 team.

It’s a great accolade for our team and an important endorsement of the quality of work we undertake for our clients, several of whom were contacted by the researchers and provided some brilliant feedback which included these quotes:

“Tiggy Clifford and Emma Whiting are specialist and personable lawyers who have built a bespoke brand to cater to ever increasing demand for employment law advice. They are straight talking and experts in their field.”

“Torque has an exceptional strength when it comes to employment law.”

“Emma Whiting is an excellent solicitor, she understands the law and has a wider understanding of tactical considerations. She is friendly and works tirelessly for her clients.”

With Chambers & Partners, the other highly regarded directory, due out later in this month, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll achieve our first firm ranking with them as well to make it a double whammy.
