Talent and achievement from across the solicitor profession were celebrated at the 10th annual Law Society Excellence Awards, held last month at the Hilton Hotel Park Lane in London. The awards are a recognition of the commitment, enthusiasm and passion that solicitors show in serving their clients. The evening, hosted by BBC Radio 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain, saw ten firms and seven individual solicitors receive awards across the 17 categories, along with a further 21 highly commended awards and a Lifetime Achievement award. The night's keynote address was delivered by the Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE.
