Palmers makes its mark on The Legal 500

News Article

Essex-based law firm Palmers has been recognised for its expertise in the UK Legal 500.

The recently published 2014 version is the leading guide to law firms in the UK. It is aimed at buyers of legal services, particularly general and corporate counsel and it is researched and written by an experienced team. The research process involves inviting submissions from law firms across the UK and in the finalised guide, firms are ranked according to their location and practice area, with leading individuals in each field listed. Therefore, every firm ranked and every individual mentioned in The Legal 500 UK is recommended.

Palmers is proud to announce that it has been recommended in six different sectors of law:

The UK Legal 500 referenced Luke Morgan in the ‘commercial litigation (Essex)’ section and commented that he “…heads the practice at Palmers, which acts in all types of commercial debt and contract disputes and is particularly active in construction cases.”

Within ‘corporate and commercial (Essex)’, it was noted that BJ Chong’s team “…has a portfolio of national and international clients and among its highlights, it advised the vendors on the £12million management buyout of a large civil engineering firm.” Furthermore, BJ Chong was recommended in this area. He received a further reference in ‘employment (Essex)’ as leader of the employment team which “…represented a crane hire company in relation to claims for disability discrimination and unfair dismissal.”

Carey Jacobs, a Partner at Palmers, said: “We’re really happy to have our hard work recognised and this is testament to the dedication of the whole team at Palmers. Everyone should be proud of this success and the news that we are recommended in so many areas.”
