EMLD vice-chair scoops award at UK Diversity awards event
On 28 November, Evelyn Ofori Koree received the award for most outstanding law firm (sole practitioner/SME) category at the annual prestigious BSN UK Diversity awards ceremony. Her firm Descartes Solicitors was founded in 2007, restructured and re-branded in 2012 to emerge as one of London’s leading dynamic law firms.
It’s been a busy year for Ms Koree. As well as being part of the new EMLD committee leadership team, she was elected on the Law Society Council.
Also at the ceremony Caroline Newman, former EMLD chair, picked up an award in the diversity champion category.
