Stevens & Bolton LLP has been named ‘National/Regional Law Firm of the Year’ at the 2016 Legal Business Awards, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night. The firm was chosen ahead of 6 others from across the UK. The decision was made by a judging panel which included many of the top general counsel in the UK. This is the second time the firm has been awarded this accolade, having first won in 2009 and the firm has been shortlisted each year since 2012.
The Legal Business Awards, organised by Legal Business, are one of the most prestigious awards in the legal sector. The “National/Regional Law Firm of the Year” award recognises the UK-based national or regional firm (with headquarters outside of London) that has made the most significant progress over the past year in advancing its strategy. Key factors taken into account for this award are evidence of effective leadership, impressive financial performance and increased market share across the firm’s major practice areas.
Ken Woffenden, managing partner of Stevens & Bolton, said: “We are delighted to have won this highly prestigious award. It reflects the hard work and dedication of everyone in the firm – a fantastic team effort. I would like to thank all of them and also all our clients and friends for their support for the firm – we really appreciate it.”
