Collingwood Legal recognised as best in class by the Legal 500 for third year in a row

Newcastle based law firm Collingwood Legal has been recognised as a Top Tier employment law firm in the legal services guide the Legal 500 for the third year in a row.

The Legal 500 is published annually based on independent research gathered from interviewing clients and business contacts of law firms across the UK.

The guide says:

Boutique employment firm Collingwood Legal stands out for its “excellent response times” and “business acumen” alongside its “pragmatic and practical” advice.

 In addition to recognition for the firm as a whole, 6 solicitors in the firm are recognised as employment law experts in this year’s guide with Charlotte McBride and Alexandra Besnard joining Paul McGowan, Paul Johnstone, Sarah Fitzpatrick and Jane Sinnamon who were also recognised in the previous year’s guide.

Highlights from this year’s publication include recommendations for solicitor Charlotte McBride as “extremely knowledge and fast working” and with “excellent communication skills” and Alexandra Besnard, who is singled out for her “pragmatic approach” and “ability to deal with fragile clients where extra care is required”.

Paul Johnstone and Paul McGowan, Partners in the firm, are also amongst a small handful of employment lawyers described as “Leading Individuals” in this year’s publication and Jane Sinnamon is recognised as a “Next Generation Lawyer”.

Collingwood Legal Managing Partner Paul McGowan said: “I am enormously proud that we have retained our Top Tier status in our industry bible the Legal 500 this week.

“We always aim to offer the best possible client service and to retain a Top Tier status based on independent research and the feedback from our valued clients is absolutely fantastic.

“It is great to see so many of our team recognised based on independent feedback including lawyers who have risen through the ranks in the firm.

“We are all extremely grateful to our clients for their ongoing support.  Thank you!”

Collingwood Legal has quickly established itself as the leading employment law firm in the north east region since it was established in 2010.

The firm includes 6 solicitors who all receive individual recognition in this year’s Legal 500 guide.
