In its recently published 2018 edition, leading legal directory Chambers & Partners has promoted GQ in its rankings. The firm remains the leading employment boutique for employers in the UK and is now ranked alongside magic and silver circle firms such as Clifford Chance, Macfarlanes and Travers Smith. GQ is also recognised as a player on the international stage thanks to its relationship with Littler, the world’s largest specialist employment law firm.
Chambers describes us as a “Highly experienced boutique employment law firm offering expert advice to large financial services clients and other high-profile organisations. Deep bench of practitioners handles both contentious and non-contentious matters, with marked success in complex litigation. Also adept at handling bonus disputes and team moves. Able to offer cross-border employment advice thanks to its May 2017 link up with Littler Mendelson.”
Based on extensive research among clients, the guide quotes one as saying:
"GQ is a premier outfit among the niche employment law firms.”
The guide has again recognised founding partner Paul Quain as a leading practitioner, saying he is “‘commercial and technically impressive’, according to his clients. He has particular expertise in handling senior hires and dismissals, team moves, injunctions and TUPE matters.”
