The monthly round-up from the Anthony Collins Solicitors charities team.
The team are delighted to have been nominated as finalists for the LaingBuisson Independent Legal Advisor award.
The LaingBuisson Awards are in their 13th year of recognising excellence within the health and social care sector. The team will be judged against 7 other strong finalists on excellence in the provision of legal services to the independent sector (both for profit and not for profit) with a focus on relevant transactions, clients or matters (such as CMA investigations).
The winner will be announced on 15 November 2018, at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.
Matthew Wort, Partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said, "Being nominated is great recognition of the team’s hard work and dedication to providing excellent client service. Making the shortlist recognises the difference that our sector specialist approach makes to our health and social care clients, with whom we share their purpose of improving lives, communities and society.”
