Our awards

Awards and recognition

There are few things in life that give us more pleasure than picking up a gong or two.  It is, after all, wonderfully gratifying when all that hard work is recognised publicly. But seriously though, do awards mean anything?  Isn’t it all just a case of mutual back-slapping?  Well, that surely depends on who’s doing the awarding.

Client satisfaction is what really matters to us. So when the legal profession’s most authoritative directories ask clients, peers and the wider market about our lawyers and they say we are ‘excellent across the board’ we know must be doing something right.

LawWorks: The Solicitors Pro Bono Awards

  • Winner: “Best Contribution by a Firm with an English Regional Head Office”

We were awarded this for the fourth time for our work and strong links in the North East communities and charities sector over the past 12 months. We were the only firm located in the North East that was nominated for any LawWorks awards in 2017.  In the last 12 months we have provided pro-bono advice worth over £77,000 and over 50 charities have benefited from our expertise.

  • Deal of the Year (under 10m) – acquisition of OGN Group by Smulders Projects

We have a strong track record in these awards, having won Corporate Law Firm of the Year more times than any other practice in the region. Seven times in 11 years to be precise.

Insider North East Property Awards 2017

  • Property Law Firm of the Year

At the inaugural North East event in May we won this award after beating competition from other regional law firms. Acting for the developers of three of the largest redevelopment schemes in Newcastle – Science Central, the Stephenson Quarter and Newgate Centre – was something that particularly impressed the judges.
