Law Society unveil annual Excellence Awards shortlist
The shortlist for the Law Society’s 10th annual Excellence Awards has been announced with 89 nominations for firms and 49 nominations for individuals across 17 categories.
The society say the awards are a recognition of the commitment, enthusiasm and passion that solicitors dedicate to serving their clients, and – in the process – underpinning England and Wales’s legal system.
Law Society president Robert Bourns said: “To be shortlisted for the Excellence Awards is an achievement to be proud of.
“The awards showcase the really excellent work and dedication of the profession to our clients and the wider community, and is one of the most rewarding and memorable days in the legal calendar.
“This tenth anniversary year of celebrating excellence in the profession is a testament to the hard work of our members, and of their sustained contribution, not only to our clients but to society as a whole.”
The finalists for the prestigious awards are selected by a panel of experts from within and beyond the profession, and demonstrate the expertise and values shared by solicitors working across England and Wales, from small local practices and in-house teams, to international City firms.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony hosted by BBC Radio 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain on 20 October 2016 at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London.
