Stockport firm wins prestigious Law Society award
A Stockport solicitors has won a coveted Law Society Excellence award.
Beeley & Co has won the Lexcel Award for Excellence in Practice Management at the Law Society’s annual Excellence Awards ceremony.
The winners of the Law Society Excellence Awards 2014 have been selected by a panel of senior industry experts, and represent the brightest and best talent the legal profession has to offer.
The Lexcel Award for Excellence in Practice Management is open to firms that hold Lexcel accreditation- the Law Society’s practice management standard.
The judges said Beeley & Co won the award due to their strong commitment to client care and adapting to regulatory reforms in the legal profession. The judges were impressed with the engagement and motivation of staff to achieve and maintain Lexcel.
BBC journalist Michel Hussain hosted last night’s ceremony at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge, which set the scene for the most prestigious awards in the legal calendar, with over 600 people in attendance.
The Awards reward outstanding achievement in areas such as pro bono, marketing and communications, diversity, client service and business. There were ten winners in the group categories and six winners in the individual categories. There were 24 highly commended awards in total.
Law Society president Andrew Caplen said:
“Last night was a celebration of the very best work of individual solicitors as well as the successes and innovations of practices and firms, both large and small. It was a triumph.
“Rarely do you get such a breadth of talent under one roof and it is heartening to see the continuous good work that makes our profession what it is. I am glad the Law Society, through the Excellence Awards, is able to formally recognise this good work, which usually takes place quietly, out of the spotlight and as a result of many long hours.
“I congratulate each winner, highly commended and shortlisted entrant. It was a tough call for the judging panel, who had to pick winners from a really exceptional bunch of people.”
