Harborough solicitors win CountyLaw Firm of the Year for the second time

An independent Harborough solicitors firm has won the Law Firm of the Year award at the Leicestershire Law Society’s 150th anniversary dinner and awards ceremony for the second time in three years. Edward, Hands & Lewis (EHL), who recently opened their fourth and newest branch on St Mary’s Road in Harborough, previously won the prestigious award in 2009. The company, which was originally set up in 1897, shared the award with Douglas Wemyss LLP.

We are absolutely delighted to win this award, which is very highly valued within the legal community,” comments EHL’s Managing Director, Jason Hathaway. “We put a lot of time and effort into ensuring that we offer our clients the best possible service from our highly trained staff and it is gratifying to see this recognised by the Leicestershire Law Society once again.” The award was given in recognition of EHL’s commitment to the community by offering free legal advice and participating in charitable work. In addition, their commitment to taking the provision of legal services forward through innovative working practices including the creation of the first retail solicitors’ branch in the county (the Law Shop in Loughborough) and their dedication to clients was seen as exemplary by the judges. The awards ceremony, which was held at the Leicester Tigers ground on Aylestone Road, included the Right Honourable Lord Justice Goldring, Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales as a guest speaker whilst the President of the Law Society for England and Wales, Mrs Linda Lee was amongst the guests. The awards were again sponsored by De Montfort University Law School and were judged by the Law School Head, Mrs Sheree Peaple, who also presented the awards to the winners. Stephen Woolfe President of the Leicestershire Law Society commented “Our awards have complemented a very successful year for the Leicestershire Law Society as it celebrates its 150th anniversary. We have been delighted by the very high standard of entries and the very worthy winners demonstrate the strength of the legal profession in Leicester and Leicestershire.
