This year, as in previous years, Averta tops tier three of human resources firms in the West Midlands, an impressive performance for a niche firm against much larger players.

This year Legal 500 comments that:

“Averta Employment Lawyers LLP is a ‘strong, experienced and practical' boutique employment law firm which is particularly active for senior executives, managers and professionals. Alan Jones and David Sykes are ‘responsive and pragmatic', and ‘calm and careful' director Rachel Broughton is also popular with clients.”

The firm expanded in 2013 with the addition of a London office when former DLA partner, Anne Mannix joined as the firm as London director.

Director, David Sykes, said: “As a small niche firm we are delighted to be recognised for the quality of our advice alongside the regions big players. It is also very pleasing to see such positive commentary about all our Birmingham directors; myself, Alan Jones and Rachel Broughton.”

Alan Jones and David Sykes are also listed as one of the West Midlands’ leading individuals.

Legal 500 classifies the West Midlands as comprising Birmingham and the surrounding counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.
