Kennedys Joins Top Law Firms on Workplacelaw Network

Kennedys this week becomes the latest top-100 law firm to link up with the Workplacelaw Network to provide up-to-the minute, online legal support and information for UK employers and managers.

Kennedys has 68 Partners and over 130 other fee earners, trainees and paralegals, and is one of the leading litigation firms within the City. The firm brings three partners to the Workplacelaw Network, who specialise in the key areas of workplace management: Brian Gegg (employment), Daniel McShee (health and safety) and Jeremy Palmer (property).

Kennedys will work with the Workplacelaw Network in two ways: assisting in the fast-growing library of workplace 'Policies and Procedures' (including the innovative 'Driving at Work Policy and Management Guide'), and providing specific advice through the Workplacelaw Network's Online Advice Panel.

Polly Green, Online Services Manager at the Workplacelaw Network, welcomed the initiative:

"We are very excited about working closely with such a forward-thinking law firm. Employers and workplace managers will benefit greatly from this latest addition to the Workplacelaw Network. Kennedys motto is 'Legal Advice in Black and White', which sums up perfectly what we believe in at Workplacelaw; watch this space."

Vicky MacDonald-Hill, Marketing Director at Kennedys, commented:

"We are delighted to be working with the Workplacelaw Network. This is an excellent opportunity to deliver legal information to UK employers in a fresh format, using new media technologies. Kennedys and Workplacelaw are both highly respected brands at the forefront of UK law, and we look forward greatly to working together."

Kennedys joins an array of top-100 law firms which already deliver legal support and information alongside the Workplacelaw Network, including Eversheds, CMS Cameron McKenna, Nabarro Nathanson, Masons, Tarlo Lyons, Bird & Bird, and many others.
