Shortlist unveiled for Law Society's 11th Excellence Awards
The names of the brightest and best from the solicitor profession were today unveiled by the Law Society of England and Wales in their 11th annual Excellence Awards.
The annual awards recognise the commitment, enthusiasm and passion that solicitors dedicate to serving their clients, and, in the process, underpinning our world-renowned legal system.
"To be shortlisted for the Excellence Awards is an achievement to be proud of," said Law Society president Joe Egan.
"The awards showcase the first-rate work and dedication of the profession to their clients and the wider community, and is one of the most rewarding and memorable days in the legal calendar."
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.
"This eleventh 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 clients but to society as a whole," said Joe Egan.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony hosted by BBC Radio 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain on 19 October 2017 at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London.
