What Others Say

Awards and Legal Directories

Chambers 2022

‘Crossland Employment Solicitors are an excellent employment firm. They are all expert solicitors, very approachable and pragmatic, allowing organisations to understand the practical implications of issues and take an appropriate risk assessment’.

‘They get the right balance of advice. They understand the commercial drive of the business and they help you make safe but commercial decisions. They translate things into layman’s speak and explain if I need’.

‘They are a gem of an organisation which is built around a strong set of values. They are responsive, technical, extremely competent and solution oriented. They are excellent’.

Legal 500: 2022 edition

‘The Crossland team provides a very personal service. They fully consider the specifics of a case and how legal and commercial issues impact it. They are proactive in highlighting changes in legislation and providing clarity. They are very respected specialists in employment law and not afraid to challenge the courts or ACAS if they believe public advice is incorrect’.

‘Crossland is a unique team because not only do you get a sense that they are all experts in their particular fields, they also collaborate with each other – which means that as a client you get the best advice from the most knowledgeable person’.

‘A very homogenous legal team of employment experts who benefit from each other’s experience and expertise. Led by the phenomenal Beverley Sunderland’.

‘Beverley Sunderland is, without doubt, the leading employment solicitor in the region. She has enormous experience and expertise over the entire range of employment law, including High Court litigation in the employment arena, such as restrictive covenant injunctions, and other crossover commercial litigation/employment disputes. A sure pair of hands, calm under pressure, well supported by her team. Barry Ross is calm and measured in his advice and instils confidence in clients. Owen Dear is an excellent employment lawyer, thinks cases through clearly and thoroughly’.

‘I mainly deal with Barry Ross who is an absolute stand-out star in my opinion. Barry is superb in terms of his knowledge of employment law; but what differentiates him (and the rest of the team), is the fact that he is extremely commercial and understands the tensions between clients, their duty of care to their colleagues but also their requirements’.

‘Maria Hoeritzauer has got our company and myself through the past year of sudden and difficult-to-understand employment changes. She is concise, knowledgeable and speaks to individuals as if she is a member of the company supporting the overall solution. I look forward to needing her advice!’
