29 October 2018
The leading legal directory The Legal 500 today published its guide to the UK legal profession for 2019. Fox & Partners is praised for its ‘fantastic service’ and ‘extremely good industry knowledge’, and is recognised as a leading firm for both partnership and employment work. Its partners are all listed as leading individuals, while founder Ronnie Fox is listed in The Legal 500 UK Hall of Fame 2018 for Partnership work.
The guide entries say:
Fox & Partners‘ ‘high-quality’ team is noted for its ‘hands-on’ approach to contentious partnership matters. Following the retirement of owner and manager Ronnie Fox, the practice is co-led by Catriona Watt and Caroline Field, both of whom were promoted to partner in July 2017. Watt, who possesses ‘superb judgement’ and gives ‘extremely commercial advice’, specialises in departures and arrivals, partner rights and entitlements and negotiating terms of exit. Field is ‘astute’ and ‘capable under pressure’ and draws on her commercial litigation background to advise on partnership disputes. Also made partner in July 2017, Dean Fuller is a veteran of the partnership space.
EMPLOYMENT: EMPLOYERS AND SENIOR EXECUTIVES
Fox & Partners ‘provides a fantastic service, has extremely good industry knowledge and is always available’ with ‘excellent client focus and personal attention’. Key names include ‘very responsive and insightful’ non-contentious specialist Dean Fuller, contentious expert Caroline Field and Catriona Watt, who is ‘utterly thorough in her approach and offers a perspective that is highly reassuring’. The team’s expertise encompasses whistleblowing and discrimination claims, senior executive departures and recruitment issues.
Ronnie Fox, who founded Fox & Partners and remains a consultant to the firm, is listed in The Legal 500 UK Hall of Fame 2018 for Partnership work. The editorial explains that The Legal 500 Hall of Fame highlights individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence and have been recognised by The Legal 500 as one of the elite leading lawyers for six consecutive years.
