Top 20 law firms: Chambers UK rankings

The border collie is the breed of dog leading law firms consider best represents them Photograph: Ben Stansall/AFP/Getty Images

Chambers UK launched its 2013 UK guide on Thursday and rather than simply reporting who has been singled out for excellence, we thought we’d ask high-ranking law firms for some additional information; the kind you don’t usually find in a legal directory.

In a bid to discover more about the personalities of leading legal businesses, we invited them to describe themselves by reference to dogs, biscuits and cartoon characters. As you might imagine, some (okay, most) were not playing, but a few were willing to show a lighter side. Note the marked preference for the border collie as the breed of dog leading law firms consider best represents them.

Firm: DWF
No. of rankings: 66
Top 20 position: 6
Biscuit: Caramel chocolate digestive, “a modern twist on a classic.”
Cartoon character: Buzz Lightyear, “ambitious and dedicated, and we look out for our people too.”
Dog: Labradoodle, because “DWF continues to evolve, building on its solid strengths and those of other firms that it merges with.”

Firm: CMS Cameron McKenna
No. of rankings: 55
Top 20 position: 11 (joint with Irwin Mitchell)
Biscuit: Mille feuille, because it’s “international, works on many levels and combines numerous ingredients.”
Cartoon character: Tin Tin
Dog: Border collie

Firm: Mills Reeve
No. of rankings: 54
Top 20 position: 12 (joint with DAC Beachcroft)
Biscuit: Hobnob, “a classic, described by Peter Kay as the Marines of the dunking biscuit world ie. they can take everything that’s thrown at them.”
Cartoon character: Mr Benn. “on the outside looks like your classic business person in a suit, but underneath can transform into a wide variety of characters.”
Dog: Border collie

Firm: Brodies
No. of rankings: 50
Top 20 position: 16 (joint with Squire Sanders)
Biscuit: Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer – “Scottish through and through yet widely admired.”
Cartoon character: Top Cat because he’s “savvy, charismatic and a superb problem solver.”
Dog: Border collie

Firm: Berwin Leighton Paisner
No. of rankings: 61
Top 20 position: 7
Biscuit: Hotel Chocolat biscuit
Cartoon character – Simba in The Lion King (still growing up but soon to be king of the jungle, likes to travel, not afraid of change)
Dog: Labrador (loyal to our clients, friendly firm)

Top 20 law firms: Chambers UK Guide rankings

We asked some serious questions too: about women partners; trainee in-take; and the starting salary of trainees. The table above lists the top 20 firms by number of rankings in Chambers and shows the silly as well as the serious information provided to us by some of them. One striking thing about the data is that regional firms, such as DWF, Osborne Clarke and Brodies do as well, if not better, in the rankings than law firms traditionally regarded as the most prestigious in the UK.

Getting Employee Security Awareness Training Right #security #awareness #training


Time after time, attackers seem to find ways to get users to open an attachment.

Throwing technology at this is one way to address the issue. Another is through security awareness training – but depending on who is being asked, that may be either a panacea or an undersized Band-Aid. Training employees right, experts said, takes a mix of clearly-defined goals, executive support and an understanding of employees’ roles and the target audience.

“The number one problem in the typical security awareness program is a lack of well-defined, measurable objectives for the program,” said Gartner analyst Andrew Walls. “Well-defined objectives enable the design, development/acquisition of effective security education and training that produces measurable improvements in security.”

In general, Walls said, there are four types of objectives in security awareness programs: setting disciplinary baselines meant to establish justification for disciplinary actions when an employee breaks policy; regulatory compliance; establishing, diminishing or maintaining certain behaviors and the development of knowledge among employees in regards to security and risk management. It’s critical, he added, that organizations define and gain executive support for a set of learning objectives.

The other two areas where security awareness programs often fail is in not understanding the intended audience and pushing awareness topics and content that are not selected based on an assessment of risk, Walls said.

“The organizations that remedy these three factors have effective awareness programs that produce measurable results,” he said.

In a recent report with Wombat Security Technologies, the Aberdeen Group argues that if businesses can figure out a way to use training to change employee behavior, an organization’s cyber-risk can drop dramatically. According to the Aberdeen Group, an analysis of 29 independent benchmark studies involving more than 3,500 enterprises found that leading performers were 70 percent more likely than the lagging performers to have invested in awareness programs for their end-users.

“Mock attacks should be handled with great care and should include communication with appropriate management stakeholders, and often even the end users,” said Joe Ferrara President and CEO Wombat Security Technologies, which specializes in security training programs. “Before the first mock attack campaign is started, the security officer should meet with the management team to discuss the purpose of the exercise and assuring them that this is not meant to trick anyone or make them feel badly. A company-wide communication can be sent a week or more in advance of the attack to share the same sentiment that the purpose of any mock attack program is to assess vulnerability to attacks from the wild, provide brief information about how to recognize and avoid attacks.”

“Security officers should select a mock attack that is relevant to their environment and is likely to appear from cyber criminals themselves to get the best evaluation of end user susceptibility to real attacks,” he added. “Once they have notified all parties and allowed enough time for people to forget about the program it is time to initiate the attack and then collect the results.”

Not everyone is completely sold on the idea of security education dramatically impacting the security of an organization however.

“While security awareness training is one part of a comprehensive information security program, its effectiveness is somewhat negated by the simple fact that it only takes one human to click on something bad to jeopardize the entire enterprise,” said Norm Laudermilch, COO of Invincea. “So even if 99 out of 100 employees paid attention in class and learned what not to click on, the one employee that was home sick that day would put the company at the same level of risk as if no awareness training was done at all. In addition, today’s malvertising threats make any awareness training useless because the user doesn’t even have to click on anything to execute malicious code and create an infection. The mere act of browsing to a reputable website owns the entire enterprise.”

Security awareness training cannot be a once-a-year event and still be effective, said Elise Yacobellis, director of global development at (ISC)², which provides security education and certifications for IT professionals.

“There needs to be continuous training as well as communications and marketing involvement to keep the messages fresh in the minds of the employees,” said Yacobellis. “The entire program needs buy-in from upper management to incorporate this learning into the daily life of employees. The awareness messages must be pertinent to each individual’s area of responsibility. In others words, the message needs to be simple and trackable to the tasks that each individual performs.”

A campaign should also be developed with marketing, communications and human resources with timely reminders about security awareness concepts, she said.

“In today’s world of training, an organization’s internal Learning Management System (LMS) should be utilized to track progress of employees’ training sessions, testing of concepts, and answering knowledge-based questions that allow an individual to retain the information,” she said. “These efforts should be supported by managers of the employees and considered part of an individual’s performance objectives. By having all departments working together, this will send a cohesive message to employees regarding the high importance of security and their role in that effort.”

  • Clinical Pastoral Counseling
  • Community Health Services
  • Genetic Counseling
  • Marriage and Family Counseling
  • Medical Social Work
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Mental Health Services Technician
  • Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
  • Substance Abuse Counseling

Substance Abuse Counselor Education Information

Individuals interested in becoming substance abuse counselors are urged to check their state’s licensure requirements, since educational prerequisites vary greatly by state. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov ), some states require students only complete a high school diploma and obtain certification to become licensed substance abuse counselors. Other states require a master’s degree.

Students entering an educational program in substance abuse counseling must have graduated from high school or earned their GED prior to enrollment. Programs can lead to a certificate or degree ranging from associate’s to master’s. All students should have a desire to help people and their families through the recovery process. Additional prerequisites might be necessary depending on the degree level being pursued.

Prospective substance abuse counselors enrolled in a formal program study topics including patient assessment, treatment planning, group counseling techniques, individual counseling, crisis intervention and case management skills. Additional subjects of study might include interviewing techniques, families and the addiction process, drugs and society, types of substance abuse, crime and drugs, professional ethics and addictive behaviors.

Training Requirements

Students generally need to complete a number of supervised internship hours to complete a substance abuse or addiction counseling program. Some substance abuse counselor programs require up to 460 hours of supervised training under a qualified clinical supervisor or certified mental health professional. Some of these experiences are paid internships, and some are meant to fulfill specific state certification or licensure requirements. Most programs require around 100-150 hours of internship experience to fulfill training requirements. Many schools offer job placement services to graduates of substance abuse counseling programs.

The BLS expects that job growth for substance abuse counselors between 2014-2024 will increase by 22%, which is much faster than average compared to all occupations. In 2015, junior colleges offered the highest salaries to substance abuse counselors, paying a mean salary of $72,520.

Building a Bridge between Healthcare IT

and Biomedical Services

Modern medical centers are dependent on computers and networked communications. Specialists in biomedical computing and biomedical engineering are key contributors to health care environments and health data management interpreting medical information to correctly identify IT errors and solve problems.

Cross-trained IT technicians examine medical data properly and understand medical language to ensure that your facility is functioning efficiently and without error.

Biomedical Informatics Support Services

Biomedical informatics support is a necessity in any medical establishment. More than that, efficient and effective biomedical informatics support helps to keep a medical facility running smoothly and allows the team to focus on the ultimate goal of patient care. Cross-trained technicians allow a facility to get the best of both worlds through an understanding of biomedical engineering as well as information technology. Binovia’s cross-trained bITomeds can efficiently overlap into biomedical services and IT issues without the need for outside help, efficiently solving issues and increasing facility efficiency. With our clear understanding of both aspects, we help streamline troubleshooting and solve problems quickly so you can focus on patients.

Electronic Medical Records/EMR Services

The electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) are fast becoming the industry standard in healthcare records management. With the government strongly encouraging a national transition to EMRs, Binovia can help make sure that your facility is up-to-date and ready for any governmental changes. While many facilities struggle with making the conversion from paper to electronic medical records, Binovia works directly with your staff to ensure a smooth transition. We implement the process efficiently and provide specialized EMR/EHR system implementation and training services to help you transition from paper records to electronic records.

Some of the offerings included with Binovia’s EMR services are:

  • Electronic scheduling
  • Electronic billing
  • CAMOS (Computer Aided Medical Ordering System)
  • DICOM image scanning
  • Electronic prescriptions
  • Dictation directly into patient records

Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is a crucial part to keeping healthcare facilities running properly. In addition to offering healthcare IT services, Binovia’s technicians are also trained biomedical engineers. They ensure your facility is up to date and running smoothly. Equipment upgrades are carried out, old technology is phased out and new systems are implemented quickly and efficiently. Our biomedical engineers are not only dedicated to keeping up, but also putting your facility ahead of the latest technological advances, increasing efficiency and interoperability between the departments of your healthcare facility.

Medical Equipment Repair

Proper maintenance and repairs for medical equipment are continually necessary. Binovia’s skilled cross-trained technicians can repair and service your medical devices to ensure proper functionality so you can provide the highest level of service to your patients. Our technicians and account representatives also work closely with your staff to plan properly for implementation of new equipment and phasing out of old technology to guarantee that your facility is always on track with new technology.
