The Legal 500:

Sally is recognised as a Leading Individual within The Legal 500.

‘This team is incredibly well organised and efficient under the ultimate leadership of Sally Morris. Employment is a vibrant and buzzy team with lots of successes. The lawyers are very commercial yet still provide a great service. Sally is a formula one legal engine. Sally will always fit you in whenever you need her input, and given how urgent employment matters may be, this is critical.’

‘Sally Morris runs various training sessions with her clients about topical HR matters. This has helped increase the knowledge of managers at my firm that currently has no dedicated HR resource. Sally is professional and patient with us when explaining options. She is both calm, considered and caring but when we need to be on the front foot she can be strong and firm on our behalf‘.
