Anthony Collins Solicitors was named Regional Law Firm of the Year at Thursday's (14 March) Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards. This marks back-to-back wins for the firm after taking home the award in 2018.
The practice was also shortlisted for a number of other categories, with its housing sector and procurement, projects and construction teams honoured in the awards’ Excellence in Client Service category. Two of Anthony Collins Solicitors’ paralegals and one of its trainee solicitors were in the running for other awards on the night.
Now in its 18th year, the Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards showcases the best legal talent from across the entire region.
Winning the Regional Law Firm of the Year tops off a successful period for Anthony Collins Solicitors after opening a new office in Manchester earlier this year, announcing record-breaking financial results for 2017/18 and recently publishing its first ever Social Impact Report.
Speaking on the win, Peter Hubbard, Senior Partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said:
“The Birmingham Law Society is the largest and most active regional law society in the UK, making its awards one of the most competitive. Winning Regional Law Firm of the Year for the second time is an incredible feat for our team who give their all for our clients every day.
“Many people asked me last night, ‘how did you manage to win again?’ Well, success at Anthony Collins Solicitors boils down to harnessing people’s enthusiasm for our social purpose to enable us also to deliver strong commercial results.
“We are dedicated to improving lives, communities and society, and I think this passion clearly shone through to the judges, combined with extremely talented staff who spur each other on to make a difference, we know anything is possible.”
