The Legal 500 EMEA results are out and The Bench has again achieved firm rankings in the United Arab Emirates for (i) Technology, Media & Telecom (ii) IP and (iii) Real Estate. Joby Beretta has also retained the accolade of 'Leading Individual' for TMT.
A huge thanks to all our clients and peers for your positive feedback again this year! Our expertise in these core practice areas was recently acknowledged back in February by Chambers and Partners where our lawyers were ranked in the same 3 areas. Comments from Legal 500 2019 include:
"‘A good firm with good lawyers’, The Bench earns praise for its ‘strong client care’. The group handles an array of outsourcing, data protection, M&A and sports law matters for clients including Alfan and Amadeus. Joby Beretta and senior consultant Chris Appleby are recommended."
"‘Client-focused, efficient and unstuffy’, The Bench scores highly for its ‘genuinely international understanding of IP issues’. Firm founder Joby Beretta ‘instils confidence’ and advised MSS Kits on the sponsorship of Tom Wrigley in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB."
"The Bench, which is focused on the hospitality sector, secures praise for its ‘tailor-made service’, ‘broad industry knowledge’ and ‘modest yet effective lawyers’. The ‘commercially astute’ Joby Beretta advised Golden Group Holding on negotiations with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts for a new Muscat hotel."
