Leading Yorkshire law firm Berwins is celebrating after being shortlisted for a prestigious national legal award.
The Harrogate and Leeds based practice is one of only three finalists in the ‘People and Engagement’ category at the 2020 Legal Practice Management awards.
The award recognises excellence in legal practice with a focus on people-centred initiatives. Berwins has been recognised for creating and developing a programme which embedded the firm’s culture to drive improvements in client service standards together with the working environment for its staff.
Commenting on the recognition, Managing Director Sarah Smith said, “We’re thrilled to be one of just three law firms from across the UK to reach the final stage of this much sought-after award.”
“We believe that great people – empowered to reach their potential – sit at the heart of every successful business. An engaged workforce goes further to support the needs and aspirations of our diverse client base. We want to be known as a go-to legal provider and a star employer in our locality; the initiative we introduced has made this a reality. It’s fantastic to get recognition for what we are delivering on daily for our clients and employees.”
The nomination comes hot on the heels of shortlisting for two categories at the 2020 Modern Law Awards, giving the firm a very positive start to the new year. Both awards ceremonies take place in February.
