Stephensons Solicitors LLP was named the Law Firm of the Year at an important conference and awards dinner within the legal calendar.
The sought after prize was awarded by the 360 Legal Group at their 3rd annual awards ceremony; held at The Belfry, near Birmingham, on Thursday 4 October.
It was presented to the Stephensons Solicitors LLP at the end of their most successful year yet, but also the one in which they demonstrated their unique community-spirited outlook; and determination to seek justice for people from all walks of life.
The Law Firm of the Year Award, sponsored by LexisNexis, is given to the company which sets itself apart from the legal competition and enjoys success in a challenging economic climate.
North West based Stephensons Solicitors LLP has enjoyed a staggering period of growth over the past year, by seeking out strategic acquisitions as a way to increase the firm’s scope and commercial reach. The firm has adopted innovative new methods of attracting new clients, but is just as passionate about retaining the existing ones.
Stephensons Solicitors LLP is committed to providing legal services to a broad cross section of the community. They believe that justice is a right and not a privilege. In order to provide this the firm has grown into one of the largest legal aid providers in the UK; offering counsel to even the most vulnerable members of society.
In response to the challenges of the recession and legal aid, Stephensons Solicitors LLP introduced fixed prices across a wide range of legal services. Now, private paying clients can enjoy certainty and security during their legal proceedings.
With offices in Altrincham, Bolton, Leigh, Manchester, St Helens and Wigan, Stephensons Solicitors LLP continues to broaden its reach and become an ever more influential presence in the North West’s legal sector.
Over the past year, Stephensons Solicitors LLP has been recognised for going ‘Beyond the Standard’; achieving Investors in People Silver status, whilst retaining the Law Society’s quality mark, Lexcel.
Presenting the award, Alison Wooddiss said: “This award is about demonstrating significant real achievement. Stephensons Solicitors LLP has shown activity, innovation, quality, growth in difficult times, and is a very worthy winner”.
Ann Harrison, chairwoman of Stephensons, said: “We are very proud to be recognised as Law Firm of the Year and I would like to thank our very hard working and loyal workforce who have all contributed to our success.
“The award is in recognition for everything we have done this year as a business to remain profitable, innovative and cost-efficient in a way that sets us apart from our competitors. We are growing as a business and will always remain committed to the people we act for in our local communities.”
