Nominations for this year's Excellence Awards are now open. Law Society vice president Nick Fluck thinks it's essential for practices across the profession to celebrate their success and enter today.
'I suspect, like me, you're often astonished by the sheer momentum of change within the legal profession.
'Our best teams and firms are always looking for new ways to deliver high-quality services, organise their practice and innovate across a wide range of fields. We have become more focused on our clients, more competitive, in many cases more international in outlook, and more committed than ever to the principles of environmental protection and equality.
It's precisely these exceptional standards that we celebrate in the Law Society's annual Excellence Awards. We're theming this year's event around the idea of precedents. It's a chance for you - either as an individual or as part of a wider team - to demonstrate what you've done to move our profession forward and establish new benchmarks. From high-street practices to global firms, everyone is able to gain the recognition they deserve.
'Demand has been extremely high in recent years for places at our black-tie event. This year, we've moved the venue to the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge, to ensure we can accommodate everyone who wants to be part of the evening.
'Let's make 2013 a particularly memorable year, by celebrating excellence wherever we find it.'
