Awards for Worcestershire’s lawyers and law firms launch

The search for Worcestershire’s best lawyers and legal firms has begun as the Worcestershire Law Society Legal Awards 2022 open for entries.

Headlining the categories this year is the ‘Solicitor of the Year’ Award, sponsored by Index West Midlands, which works with Worcestershire’s law firms and property professionals providing property conveyancing searches, reports and workflow solutions.

Other categories are the Family Law Firm of the Year, Trainee of the Year, Paralegal of the Year, Barrister of the Year, Administrator of the Year, and the special Outstanding Contribution award that is open to any law firm employee who has gone the extra mile for clients or colleagues.

Worcestershire Law Society President Andrew Chandler heads this year’s awards judging panel, alongside Kate Bould, managing director of Index West Midlands,
Charlotte Perry, Worcestershire Law Society president in 2021, Priya Tromans, Barrister at St Ives Chambers, and the Head of Worcester Law School Stephen Hurley.

“The Society’s Awards are the only ones specifically for Worcestershire’ legal professionals, and we anticipate a record-breaking number of entries this year,” said Andrew Chandler. “Our flagship event, the Awards’ dinner historically attracts around 200 professionals from the county’s legal world, and is always a hugely enjoyable evening.”

Kate Bould, Index West Midlands, adds: “These Awards are quite simply unique for turning a spotlight on the high calibre of legal professionals working across the county. Judging the awards is always enjoyable and interesting, and we are delighted to be sponsoring both the headline Solicitor of the Year and Administrator of the Year Awards this year.

“I always look forward to the dinner and thoroughly enjoy seeing so many friends and contacts at the event,” she says.

Andrew Chandler adds: “We are grateful to all our sponsors and supporters, especially to Index West Midlands’ that is a category sponsor for the sixth consecutive year.”
