Douglas law firm M&P Legal has been ranked in the top category for employment law in both of the recently published 2022 client directory reviews.

The Legal 500 and the Chambers & Partners 2022 directories rank M&P Legal as a band 1 law firm which it comes to Isle of Man employment law advice. Its employment lawyers have also been praised for their work. Head of Employment John Aycock features in the Legal 500 Hall of Fame for his labour law expertise and is a band 1 ranked lawyer in the Chambers rankings. Amelia Quinn and Josh Quinn, advocates in the M&P Legal employment team, are identified as rising stars.

In the Chambers Directory M&P Legal is described as “an excellent boutique firm. They have a small family feel to their personal service but provide very strong advice”. John Aycock is described as “an excellent, experienced, pragmatic lawyer…in tune with relevant points of law while also being commercially astute”. John has regularly featured as a recommended lawyer in these legal directories and is known in the Isle of Man for employment law experience and expertise. He has contributed the Isle of Man chapter of “Business Transfers and Employee Rights” a Butterworths publication. John said:-

It is pleasing to see the firm maintain its position as a local leader in employment law. We have a very strong employment law team here and even since the research carried out by these directories to make their rankings we have recruited another quality employment advocate namely David Keates. Our team is therefore even stronger now. We certainly do try to offer a personal service to our clients and this seems to be recognised in the research carried out by the directories and the consequent rankings. The past year has brought labour law sharply into focus and it is an area that rarely sits still. We continue to view it as a growth area and an important resource for Isle of Man employers and their workforce, particularly as local labour law does differ from that of the UK.

Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners are two of the leading law firm directories and they undertake extensive research amongst clients in order to rank lawyers and law firms.
