Bellevue Law ranked for advising Senior Executives and Employers by The Legal 500 2022

- Florence Brocklesby also ranked as Leading Individual

We are very proud to announce that Bellevue Law has been ranked in this year’s Legal 500 directory for the quality of our employment law advice to employers. One piece of client feedback which the directory reported said that we deliver ‘all that the Magic Circle does in terms of expertise, judgement, client handling’.

Our founder and employment law expert, Florence Brocklesby, has been ranked for the first time as a ‘leading individual’ in employment law advice for senior executives, and the firm celebrates a tier three ranking, an increase from the previous edition.

Florence was highlighted as ‘an outstanding individual’ for being ‘extremely diligent and fiercely bright’, ‘a calming, wonderful person to work with’, and clients having ‘100% trust in her [and] her team’.
Florence says: ‘I'm very pleased to receive the exceptional feedback from our peers and clients in terms of our legal expertise and client care, particularly during a challenging period for many of our clients. I would like to thank them all for entrusting us with their most important legal issues and generous feedback’.

Bellevue Law’s first ranking for employers comes just after the appointment of two new lawyers Rachel and Imogen, bringing specialist expertise from international law firms which have further complemented our ability to advise clients on employment law and disputes.

Employees client feedback

“A small practice that gives a very personal service, very quick response times. Team is very competent, understanding and very good at explaining the strategy, pro and cons and finding the best path forward.”

“Bellevue Law was recommended to me as I had a very sensitive and delicate case to pursue. I 100% could not be happier with the sincerity, effort, due diligence, and expertise in which my case was handled. Florence had been such a calming, wonderful person to work with. She sincerely fought for my case and I had 100% trust in her, her team, and that I received the best possible results considering how difficult the nature of my case was.”

“Great advice. Amazing service. Very empathetic team with great expertise! Florence’s service was impeccable! Advice was pragmatic and clear. Very happy with her and would always recommend her.”

Employers client feedback

“They are all extremely good lawyers but offer a service at a much-reduced rate than the large City firms, where they worked prior to joining Bellevue. They are different from competitors because they are all very experienced – the work is not farmed out to juniors. Florence Brocklesby is extremely diligent and fiercely bright. Leigh Edgar is excellent.”

“Bellevue represents an extremely compelling value proposition: they are a team of highly trained lawyers who deliver all that the Magic Circle does in terms of expertise, judgement, client handling skills but at a fraction of the cost. Their success is richly deserved.”

Senior consultant Leigh Edgar also received strong feedback from clients in the firm’s editorial write up for employers, as follows:

Leigh Edgar is a pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable, experienced, pragmatic, and empathetic. Aside from a deep understanding of the employment law that you’d expect, Leigh was also excellent at anticipating potential outcomes/responses, and working them through with us such that we could put forward solutions or offers that had the best chance of working for all parties.”
