Barrett & Co has been awarded the top legal prize from the Law Society. Here is the press release:
Local legal firm Barrett and Co Solicitors LLP has been awarded the top prize at the Law Society’s Excellence Awards – the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales.
The event – held virtually for the first time due to the Covid-19 pandemic – shines a spotlight on the achievements of solicitors in England and Wales. Professionals and their firms are recognised across a range of categories covering all areas of legal practice and business.
Barrett and Co was announced as the Highly Commended winner of the Private Client category.
Jane Whitfield, Private Client solicitor at Barrett and Co said,
“We have a great Private Client team and this award is recognition of that expertise and service. The Law Society’s Legal Excellence Awards are highly contested so this is something all our team can be proud of. Being nominated is good. Becoming a highly commended finalist is a great achievement and reflects all the hard work we put in for our clients.”
Law Society of England and Wales president Simon Davis said: “2020 has been an extremely challenging year for the profession and the public.
“Solicitors have gone above and beyond in order to keep individual and business clients out of trouble, often at risk to their own mental, physical and financial health.
“At the Law Society Excellence Awards, we come together to celebrate outstanding success.
“There are more than 9,000 firms and 190,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to win an Excellence Award is an extraordinary achievement.”
