Hilary Meredith Solicitors was last night named as Personal Injury / Clinical Negligence Team of the Year at the 2017 Manchester Legal Awards.
The awards, now in their eighth year, took place at the Midland Hotel in Manchester. Organised by Manchester Law Society, the evening was attended by over 650 guests from Greater Manchester and beyond.
“This is a fantastic achievement,” said Hilary Meredith, CEO at Hilary Meredith Solicitors. “I am so proud of what the team has achieved over the last twelve months. It is a huge credit to the talent, hard work and dedication of everyone.”
Having been shortlisted for the award last year, Clare Stevens, Director at Hilary Meredith Solicitors was interviewed by the panel of judges in January and collected the award on behalf of the firm last night.
“I’m thrilled. The Manchester Legal Awards are hugely competitive with the judges receiving entries from hundreds of law firms. To collect the award on behalf of everyone is a real career highlight for me.”
Fran Eccles-Bech, chief executive of the Manchester Law Society, said: “Yet again it’s been a tremendous night for everyone involved – there are even people asking me to book them a table for next year’s awards already!
“The awards serve to recognise genuine excellence in Manchester’s legal sector – it’s a considerable achievement in itself to be shortlisted for the awards in the first place, even before our eventual winners are decided. That’s why the awards are held in such high regard.”
