Client quotes which appear in the guide say of Alexandra:
"She delivers a fantastic client service and is very supportive."

Catherine, meanwhile, is highlighted as having a "wide-ranging expertise representing senior executives from a variety of sectors. She is recognised for her knowledge of whistle-blowing and discrimination claims."
In the guide, clients note that Catherine is: "… an excellent lawyer who has great attention to detail."
Alexandra says: "It's wonderful to be listed and really sends a signal to the market. We're been very fortunate to be entrusted by clients with some of their most personal, trying and confidential issues and we'll never take that for granted. Chambers provides rankings of lawyers and law firms that are relied on by individuals, peers and clients around the world. As you can imagine, we're really rather pleased to be named as two of their leading individuals."
Catherine says: "These rankings come just a few days before The Lawyer Awards where the firm is shortlisted for boutique law firm of the year. Our firm is proving of interest to lawyers who want both to do great work and to have a life outside of the office. We're really pleased with these results and have our fingers crossed for the awards in a few days' time."
