Top Ranked by Chambers & Partners Legal Directory

…and why this really matters to us at Torque Law  

We are absolutely thrilled to have retained our top tier ranking in the annual Chambers & Partners UK Guide 2024. 

Chambers identifies, ranks and differentiates the best legal talent globally and Torque Law LLP is delighted to confirm our firm remains in the highest tier of the directory for employment law in the ‘Yorkshire: North and East’ region.

Both Emma Whiting and Tiggy Clifford rank as ‘Band 1 – leading individuals’ and we are delighted to see them joined this year by Emma Cousins who ranks as an ‘Associate to watch’. Well done, Emma!

Why does this matter so much to us? 

We do rather enjoy this prestigious external recognition, of course, but it’s the way these rankings are decided that makes them really matter to us.

The legal directories process involves an independent researcher carefully considering the calibre of work we are undertaking and speaking to our clients about their experience of our services and expertise. To secure top tier rankings on the back of the exceptional work our clients trust us to deliver and their feedback makes this so much more meaningful.

Thank you to all of Torque Law’s wonderful clients for their unwavering support and for agreeing to be referees for us. Emma Whiting, Partner, who has now been ranked for 17 years consecutively, says:

“We are delighted to maintain our Band 1 rankings. We put relationships and working in partnership with our clients at the core of our firm to ensure high-quality service delivery – so to have that independently recognised is a testament to our approach. As a growing firm, our dedication to remaining the leading specialist employment practice in the region will continue with an inherent commitment to delivering the best possible outcomes for our clients at the forefront”.

Here are just a few of the comments made to the independent researchers: 

“Torque are always clear with their advice and steps to help you navigate through unfamiliar territory. They do not over-engineer solutions or sit on the fence, meaning their advice is succinct and cost-effective”.

“The team has broad experience and can advise in depth. The responsiveness is excellent”.

“Emma is a first-class lawyer and has good commercial sense”.

“Tiggy is excellent at getting quickly to the heart of the issue and giving pragmatic advice on the dos and don’ts of the situation.”

“Emma understands our business needs, meaning that her advice is based on sound legal foundations and an awareness of the commercial realities in which we operate”.

A huge thank you to all our professional peers, clients, and contacts for acting as referees for us in the annual directory process. We are truly grateful.
