Following our recent appearance at the Legal Week Innovation Awards, we are excited to announce that more awards are on the horizon! We are thrilled to have been shortlisted at both the upcoming Halsbury Legal Awards and The Law Society Excellence Awards, two ceremonies we were honoured to attend last year.
2015 was an extremely proud year for Giles Wilson, as we were thankful for our notable awards success. Last year, both the firm as a whole and our individual lawyers were recognised at a number of prestigious ceremonies, so we are delighted that this trend is continuing into 2016.
Halsbury Legal Awards
We are returning to the Halsbury Legal Awards on Thursday 29 September as the current holders of their Award for Diversity and Inclusion. Amid a tough field of contenders, it’s very gratifying to be acknowledged for our open approach to recruitment and highlighting the unique talents within our dedicated team.
In the months following our award success, we have prided ourselves on championing sustained diversity and talent in the legal sector. This includes our recent attendance at Legal Pride and the internal promotion of Caroline Andrews and Helen Martin to the position of partners.
It is therefore extremely gratifying to learn that not only have we been given the opportunity to retain this prestigious award at the upcoming ceremony, but we have also been shortlisted in the Award for Business Development. This award recognises the growth and innovation of a law firm.
The Law Society Excellence Awards
Three weeks later, on Thursday 20th October, we will back in London for The Law Society Excellence Awards, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Last year’s event was a terrific night for our firm, as we won the award for Excellence in Learning and Development. This was due to our exceptional in-house training programme for paralegals.
We were also highly commended in the Excellence in Private Client Practice category, which we’re delighted to announce is one of the three awards we are shortlisted for at this year’s ceremony. This is in recognition of our committed attitude towards private client work, including wills, probate and Powers of Attorney.
In addition, Giles Wilson is also in contention for Excellence in Marketing and Communications, for our innovative approach to communicating with clients and the general public, such as our informative Social Defamation quiz and growing social media presence.
Finally, our partner Melinda Giles is shortlisted for Solicitor of the Year in Private Practice. Melinda has always gone the extra mile for our firm and clients, offering expert, reassuring advice in all areas of private client work.
