Region’s top legal talent revealed

Liverpool Law Society is delighted by the number of nominations received for the 2022 Legal Awards from individuals, teams and firms across the membership. The competition has been fierce, the independent judging panel have met and the shortlist has been decided.

The judging panel said:

“’The judges found their task enjoyable but very difficult, due to the high standard of entries. It was wonderful to see so many firms prospering and growing, despite the interruption from the pandemic and the current financial situation. They are adopting and adapting technology to gain work both nationally and internationally, so enhancing the reputation of Liverpool as being a place to do business. In addition to the high-quality work, firms and individuals find time for pro bono and charity work, so giving back to the local community. All should be proud to be part of the legal community of the Liverpool City Region.”
