Saffery Champness, a sponsor of the inaugural Dorset Legal Awards, is pleased to be able to congratulate Ellis Jones Solicitors, named Law Firm of the Year, and Sam Freeman, a senior partner at Laceys Solicitors, who was named Partner of the Year.
The award winners were announced at a prestigious awards evening which took place at the Bournemouth International Centre on 23 February. Saffery Champness sponsored the Partner of the Year and Law Firm of the Year (over 10 partners) award categories.
Andrew Alder, a Bournemouth-based partner and head of Saffery Champness’ Legal Sector Group, commented:
“We are thrilled to have sponsored the inaugural Dorset Legal Awards. They have attracted so much interest in Dorset since their launch and it’s been a remarkable success story, with a high number of entrants and a dinner with over 300 guests attending. This has been a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the incredible talent and leadership within the sector.
“Choosing the winners of our categories was quite a task, as the competition was stiff, but we are very happy with our chosen winners. We felt that the winners clearly demonstrated greater levels of achievement in the year under review. We wish all the finalists sincere congratulations, it’s a huge achievement to get to this stage of the awards.”
