The credentials of leading Yorkshire law firm Berwins have been further boosted after its head of Family Law was shortlisted for a Yorkshire Legal Award.
Danielle Day is a finalist in the Rising Star category at the prestigious ceremony, which recognises the best of legal talent in the region.
Judged by an independent panel of experts drawn from across the Yorkshire legal community, the annual awards have become a key fixture of the industry calendar since launch in 2000.
Commenting on the achievement, Danielle said “The Yorkshire legal community is both strong and vibrant. It is full of many brilliant lawyers, so to be singled out as one of the rising stars amongst them is truly humbling.
“I’m proud of the excellent legal work which Berwins’ family unit carries out for our clients. We have a fantastic team and, while this award singles me out as an individual, it would be wrong to ignore the huge impact my colleagues have played in this.”
The news comes in the wake of both Danielle and the wider Family team receiving high praise in the two main legal industry guides, Legal500 and Chambers and Partners which praised the department’s attitude and quality of work.
Senior Partner, Paul Berwin added “We’re thrilled to see Danielle receive this recognition. During her time at Berwins, she has shown herself to be not only to be an excellent lawyer, but an accomplished manager and leader. Under her stewardship, the family law team has built on already sure foundations to be regarded as one of the foremost units in the area – particularly for collaborative practice.”
The winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony which, due to restrictions arising from the Coronavirus pandemic, will take place online on Tuesday 15th December 2020.
