Stevens & Bolton LLP has won ‘National/Regional Law Firm of the Year’ at the 2009 Legal Business Awards. The firm was chosen ahead of 4 others from across the UK, short listed by a group of independent judges.
Legal Business is the market leading monthly publication for the legal sector and its annual awards have been described as ‘the Oscars of the legal profession’. In the award citation, the judges commented on the firm’s impressive financial performance and high profile lateral hires in recent years and they noted: “Stevens & Bolton LLP saw its stock go through the roof this year”.
Commenting on the good news Richard Baxter, managing partner of Stevens & Bolton LLP, said:
“We are thrilled to see our progress recognised on a national stage, through this award. Our growth and high profile hires of senior lawyers from the City of London caught the judges’ eye, as well as our compelling business strategy of a single location close to London and City quality service at non-City prices. We are well placed to compete against larger, predominantly London firms, especially during these tough economic times”.
