Leigh Day & Co's Employment Law team has been shortlisted for the prestigious Lawyer Magazine Awards 2012. The winner of the award has not yet been announced.
The shortlisting is in recognition of the team's efforts in establishing themselves as one of the UK’s leading claimant employment law advisers, growing from strength to strength each year, capturing the headlines and leading the way when it comes to bold, innovative and precedent setting litigation.
The team have been involved in eight cases in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court in the last year alone and represented presenter Miriam O’Reilly in a successful age discrimination and victimisation claim against the BBC. O’Reilly, an award winning journalist, was dropped from Country file when the programme moved to prime time. Miriam, and three other women, was replaced by younger presenters.
The work of the team has also been recognised in Chambers legal directory which states:
“Leigh Day has established itself as a leading name in discrimination, equality and harassment law.” “They combine fantastic knowledge with really meticulous, client-focused work. They never let their clients down."
“Camilla Palmer is unanimously acclaimed as one of the UK's best discrimination specialists, particularly in relation to female discrimination and maternity rights cases.”
“Chris Benson is a go-to expert in equal pay and disability discrimination matters, and attracts acclaim for his ‘practical and dedicated ’demeanour.”
