partners_13079-45_150dpi-burtonphoto-co-uk-jpgLess than three years after Haberman Ilett was formed, all five of our partners have been acknowledged by Who’s Who Legal as leading experts in our field.

I am really proud of this achievement, not only for Liz Perks, Valery Knyazev and Bruno Augustin, our newer partners and the latest additions to Who’s Who Legal’s list, but for everyone in our firm.  This recognition is testimony to the efforts of all our staff, who work together with great enthusiasm, focus and professionalism.

In the consultants listing, Liz is described as ‘very good [and] easy to work with’.  She is also an excellent role model for our people, amongst many other things spearheading our approach to flexible working.

Bruno is summarised as ‘super responsive and very bright’ and is a well known forensic accountant and expert, including in the competition litigation sphere.  His recent article for The Strategic View demonstrates his commitment to collaboration in quantifying damages relating to competition law in private law enforcement actions.

Valery is ‘simply the best for Russian-language matters’ according to one respondent of Who’s Who Legal, which is not surprising given the regularity of his appearances in the witness box recently.

I am delighted for Liz, Valery and Bruno and I look forward to seeing their names, and those of others in our firm, being recognised many more times in the future.
