As mentioned back in July, 2015 has been an excellent year of awards for Giles Wilson. But, it has been a particularly special September even amidst all this success, as the firm has been celebrating some phenomenal accomplishments.
Andrews’ recent collection of a WATC
Rising Star Award in Law, we entered the Halsbury Legal Awards 2015 in buoyant spirits. The
fantastic black-tie ceremony, which took place on 16th September in
the illustrious Grange, St Paul’s Hotel, London, was a wonderful occasion to be
a part of, among the finest firms across the legal spectrum.
Giles Wilson was shortlisted for two awards at the event, and whilst we were unfortunate not to win the ‘Law Firm of the Year with 50 or fewer employees’, our firm was not to depart empty-handed. Our partners, Melinda and Philip Giles, were there to collect the ‘Award for Diversity and Inclusion’; a terrific result that we could not be prouder to have won.
award recognises a firm’s flair for celebrating diversity and promoting an
environment of equality and opportunity. It commends those with a diverse and professional
workforce, where members demonstrate the utmost respect to individuals and
their unique contributions to the firm as a whole.
The 'Award for Diversity and Inclusion' was sponsored by 3PB, while the charity partner of the Halsbury Legal Awards 2015 was the fantastic Stonewall, who were increasing awareness of their work and raising funds to promote equality in schools and the workplace for the LGBT community.
It is brilliant to be named as the winners of such a significant award, as Giles Wilson has always promoted an ideal of promoting the distinctive strengths of our individual solicitors to create the best possible team. We take the same approach to clients, ensuring all are treated fairly and offered the very best legal support.
Congratulations to the whole team for contributing to this tremendous success, and we look forward to the Halsbury Legal Awards next year!
