Bristol law firm wins national legal award

Luke Menzies

Bristol-based Menzies Law is celebrating having been awarded Regional Law Firm of the Year (Human Resources) by the national legal sector research body, The Legal 500.

Over many months of research, the Legal 500 conducted 70,000 interviews with clients of UK law firms to pinpoint the most capable, expert practitioners and firms operating at the top of their game across a number of different business sectors.

The awards are unique in the legal industry as they recognise each element of the profession equally, representing the very best law firms, barristers’ chambers, QCs, in-house lawyers, business leaders and general counsel operating within the UK market.

Menzies Law’s award recognises law firms that have demonstrated particular strength at a national and regional level, across employment law and HR disciplines.

Menzies Law has become known as one of the leading firms advising on Gender Pay Gap and Equal Pay matters, across the UK.

The firm won the Regional Firm (HR) category, beating a number of much larger firms, across the UK.

Founder Luke Menzies commented: “I was absolutely delighted to find out that we have been identified as the leading, regional employment law practice in the UK.  I very proud of what we’ve achieved, so far, at Menzies Law.

“We are a small team of senior-level experts. Winning this award proves that businesses don’t have to go to national – or even global – firms to get the very highest levels of legal expertise.”

Menzies continued: “We’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as the leaders in advising on Gender Pay Gap and Equal Pay – working across the UK. But we are first and foremost proud to represent the South West in everything we do.

“We represent a huge number of major South West businesses, manufacturing and engineering companies, FE colleges and individuals across the region and we’re thrilled to have been recognised for this work – bringing this latest award to the growing Bristol legal market”.
