Outset legal teams ranked in The Legal 500

Outset has been ranked in the 2021 edition of The Legal 500 legal directory for both Employment Law and Corporate & Commercial Law, the latter for the first time. 

The Legal 500, is a leading legal directory which analyses the capabilities of law firms across the world. A team of independent researchers rank firms based on their submissions, interviews with lead lawyers and feedback from clients and industry professionals. 

More than four million users visit The Legal 500 website each year searching for the most reliable and up-to-date information on buying legal services in the UK.

Outset has been praised for their personal approach, proactiveness and commerciality. 

In total 8 lawyers were mentioned in the guide, Jonathan Gauton, Sean Gorman, Darren Stevens, Abbe West, Jonathan Williamson, Simon Tovey, Lorraine Williams and Chloe Pereira, an increase from 2 in last year’s edition. 

Sean Gorman, Managing Director said:

 ‘It’s fantastic to see both our employment and corporate teams being ranked in The Legal 500 this year, in particular our corporate team who have been ranked for the first time. We pride ourselves on a personal and proactive approach, along with a focus on understanding our clients’ needs and providing a service to match it. To be recognised with such positive feedback from clients and industry professionals is both reassuring and humbling - it shows we’re delivering on those core aims. Nonetheless, we will keep focussing on these qualities and helping our clients achieve their goals. After a challenging year for everyone, the team can be really proud of this achievement.’
