The skills and expertise of Shoosmiths education lawyers have been recognised by Chambers and Partners which identifies and ranks the most outstanding law firms and lawyers in over 180 jurisdictions throughout the world.
Within the category of education (UK wide, individual representations), Shoosmiths LLP have gone up the ranks from recognised practitioner to Band 3. Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands with 1 being the highest, and 6 the lowest. Being ranked in any band is a significant achievement.
Victoria Federico has now been named as ‘Star Associate’ after being named as ‘Associate to Watch’ last year. Chambers awards the accolade of 'Star Associate' to lawyers who consistently demonstrate an outstanding degree of technical and commercial expertise beyond that of their peers.
In addition, this year Gurvinder Samra has been named as an ‘Associate to Watch’ in recognition of her outstanding work in the background of major cases. This is a significant achievement for both our education lawyers and recognition of their specialist skills and expertise and highlights both as lawyers who are at the forefront of their generation.
Kashmir Uppal, the partner who manages the education law unit said:
“I could not be prouder of the achievements and recognition of both Victoria and Gurvinder as experts in their field. The rankings are reflective of their hard work, commitment and passion to secure the best educational provision for their clients.”
