Liverpool Law Society’s Legal Awards are set to return next year, recognising and celebrating the excellence and achievements of the region’s law firms and individuals.
The event will take place on Friday 17 May 2019 with 14 awards up for grabs.
In keeping with the Society’s aim to broaden its membership we have extended the eligibility criteria for the ‘Rising Star Award’. This will now encompass ILEX as well as LPC students, paralegals looking for training contracts, trainee solicitor or solicitors up to five years qualified.
Previous winners have included, O’Connors, Goodman Grant and The Keith Jones Partnership amongst many others.
Managing Director of O’Connors Legal Services Limited Mark O’Connor commented “We were encouraged to enter the 2017 Legal Awards by a number of our law firm clients who felt we might benefit from some public recognition of our team’s work in supporting the legal sector. We are hugely glad we did as our win gave our team a real boost and the publicity led to a significant increase in enquiries from potential clients.”
Keith Jones, Director of The Keith Jones Partnership says “The Liverpool Law Society Legal Awards is a fantastic platform which showcases the legal talents that Merseyside has. We were very proud to be shortlisted in the first place, but to then win the 2017 Small Law Firm Award was a huge accolade for us. To be recognised by our peers in such a manner is very humbling and a great morale boost for the team for their hard work. We were up against stiff competition which reflects the quality lawyers we have in the area.
Having this platform can only help encourage law firms in the area to continue to provide excellent legal services and promote what our legal community can offer on a national basis.”
We encourage all our members to consider entering Liverpool Law Society’s 2019 Legal Awards. Entries are now open. For further information click here.
