The Law Society Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the best and brightest from the profession. The shortlist for the 12th running of the Awards has now been released, showing the firms, organisations and people who will be considered for an award in each of the various categories.
Christina Blacklaws, president of the Law Society, was quoted in the Gazette as saying:
There are more than 9,000 firms and 140,000 solicitors in England and Wales and to be shortlisted for an Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the best of the best.
All the firms and solicitors who are shortlisted should be congratulated for the work they do day-in day-out to support their clients, many of whom are navigating complex and challenging legal problems. At a time of immense pressure on the justice system, the incredible work being done by solicitors across the country should be applauded.
