Philip Giles Giles Wilson wins 'Award for Diversity and Inclusion' at Halsbury Legal Awards 2015

Giles Wilson wins ‘Award for Diversity and Inclusion’ at Halsbury Legal Awa

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.

Following Caroline 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. 

This 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!
