Jane Mann and Tina Williams “At the pinnacle of the profession”
Fox Williams head of employment Jane Mann and former senior partner Tina Williams have each been recognised in The Legal 500’s inaugural UK Hall of Fame.
The Legal 500 states that the “Hall of Fame highlights individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence. The Hall of Fame highlights, to clients, the law firm partners who are at the pinnacle of the profession.” Individual lawyers must have been recognised as one of the elite leading lawyers for eight years in the last 10 and must also have been ranked in the most recent (2017) edition of The Legal 500.
Jane Mann said, “To be recognised in this way for excellent client service is a very special accolade not only for me but also for the whole Fox Williams employment and HR Law team. We were the only firm shortlisted by the Legal 500 in 2017 for its specialist HR legal award for advice to both employers and senior executives. We advise a wide range of clients, from multinationals to individual executives, on complicated, sensitive and business critical HR and employment issues, often working in conjunction with colleagues in related disciplines internally or in overseas best friend law firms. I am very grateful to our clients and peers for their positive feedback to the Legal 500 over the years.”
Tina Williams said, “The professional practices team at Fox Williams has over many years advised numerous professional practices, their management teams and individual partners, especially other law firms and lawyers, in many jurisdictions of the world. I could not be more delighted than to be acknowledged by our peers as providing consistently first rate advice. We intend to remain at the forefront of developments in the professions in order to provide our clients with insights based on enthusiasm for their success and years of experience. I too am hugely grateful to those clients, many of whom are leading practitioners in their own fields, for taking the time to provide feedback over the years to the Legal 500.”
Fox Williams senior partner Paul Osborne said: “Entry into The Legal 500’s inaugural UK Hall of Fame is a great tribute to both Tina and Jane. It underlines their huge commitment to clients over the years and recognises their respective expertise and effectiveness. I am very proud that their achievements have been acknowledged in this manner, which is richly deserved.”
