John Irving, Tina Chander, Karen Moores, Tracy Creed - Sydney Mitchell LLP“It is great to see the firm once again shortlisted  for  the Legal Firm of the Year and a fantastic achievement for our corporate team to be recognised for the outstanding work they have done over the past few years. 

“The team has gone from strength to strength and has seen the size and the quality and quantity of corporate work grow consistently. It is very pleasing to see our corporate team being shortlisted alongside the much larger national firms such as DLA Piper, Eversheds, Gateley and Mill & Reeve.

“It is excellent news also that Tina Chander has been shortlisted as Associate of the Year; Tina specialises in Employment Law and she has been outstanding this year leading the way with the new Sydney Mitchell Employment Armour product. This is an insurance backed policy to deal with employment issues. She is a valued and committed member of the Team.”
