The team fought off strong competition from ESP Law, Gowling WLG and HRC Law to take home the award, which was centred around the work the team has done for the health and social care sector in particular.

Head of Employment, Matthew Gregson, said, "This is great recognition of how our sector insight in the firm’s sectors of Health and Social Care, Housing, Local Government, Education, Charities and Social Business is adding real value for our clients.”

Sector Lead for Health and Social Care, Matthew Wort, said, “This award is a great win for the team and recognises the hard work the Employment team does supporting sectors with key issues like sleep-in pay, National Minimum Wage concerns and general employment advice. Our success here showcases Anthony Collins Solicitors as a leading national social purpose law firm.”
