Local solicitors firm Fosters Solicitors LLP has been shortlisted for the Law Society's prestigious Excellence Awards 2019, the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales.
Fosters Solicitors LLP has been shortlisted in the Excellence in Business Development and Excellence in Client Service categories.
Chris Brown, CEO of Fosters, said "to have been shortlisted for not one but two Excellence Awards by the Law Society is testament to the work we are doing here. Given our focus on our clients, to receive a shortlisting in the Excellence in Client Service category in particular is great news - the testimonials and feedback from clients that went towards our nominations mean a lot to us all. All our staff are delighted at this news and congratulate all the nominees."
Law Society president Simon Davis said: "There are more than 140,000 solicitors in England and Wales - to be shortlisted for an Excellence Award is to be recognised as among the very best of the profession.
"The firms and solicitors shortlisted should be commended for going above and beyond to support their clients, often navigating tricky and sometimes contentious areas of the law.
"With the justice system so under strain, we should take this opportunity to celebrate the incredible work solicitors do day-in and day-out - and to recognise the immense contribution they make to our society."
Winners are announced at the Law Society's Excellence Awards ceremony in London on 23 October 2019.
