GQ|Littler wins Boutique Law Firm of the Year at Legal Business Awards

Press Release - 19 April 2018

GQ|Littler was named as the winner of the Boutique Law Firm of the Year category at last night's Legal Business Awards - the "Oscars for the legal industry".

Legal Business said “With specialist law firms striking an increasingly confident note in the market, this award will be handed to a niche practice in the UK or Channel Islands that has performed exceptionally in terms of rapidly establishing itself, approaching its chosen market creatively and effectively competing against far larger competition.”

GQ|Littler headed a field of six leading boutique firms, and was chosen as the winner because “2016/17 was a stellar year for employment specialist GQ. In its seventh year of operation, the firm’s revenues have grown by 59% to £2.8m and it has become the sole UK member of Littler, the global network of specialist employment and labour law firms.”

Founding partners Paul Quain and Jon Gilligan accepted the award from TV presenter Mariella Frostrup at a packed awards dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Jon later paid tribute to the GQ|Littler team: “This award recognises the huge contribution that everyone in the firm has made to growing our business and making it a success. Paul and I set out to create a different kind of law firm, that delivers great results for clients but is also a good place to work and it’s really satisfying to have that recognised by one the legal industry’s leading awards.”
