Michael Sippitt, Chairman of Clarkslegal LLP and Director of Forbury People, Clarkslegal’s subsidiary HR consultancy, was delighted to accept his award as the leading ‘Human Resources Individual Lawyer outside of London’, at last night’s Legal 500 UK Awards 2019 in London.
Michael Sippitt comments on his award:
“I was surprised and very honoured by this award. As ever, it is only through loyal support of others that we achieve anything. My wife, Sally has been extraordinarily patient and supportive through times when my work was all consuming, and my brilliant team partners and colleagues are absolutely vital to the enduring success and good reputation of our Human Resources practice.
While the Law in general is an integral part of society, over the 4 decades I have helped clients with workforce issues and strategic planning, it has been obvious how Employment Law in particular reflects the social contract and shifting political priorities. As so many businesses now undergo rapid transformation also through innovative technology, Employment Law and labour related strategies are going to be more critical than ever to manage change considerately and successfully.”
