Roberts Jackson Solicitors are receiving on-going industry recognition this year as they are selected for two more industry awards. The industrial disease firm has been shortlisted for two categories at this year’s Modern Law Awards, following on from last week’s news that it was shortlisted for Claimant Team of the Year at the Personal Injury Awards.
Lawyer Annabel Chadwick has been shortlisted for Rising Star of the Year, in recognition of her incredible achievements in such a short time. Since finishing her full-time LPC in June 2011 she qualified as a solicitor and has since been promoted to Associate and Head of Roberts Jackson’s COSHH (Control of substances hazardous to health) Department.
The firm has also been shortlisted for ABS (alternative business structure) of the Year. Roberts Jackson was one of the first firms to take advantage of this new structure, obtaining a licence in 2014. In the two years since gaining ABS status, the firm has built upon its reputation as the leader in its field, bringing investment and commercial expertise to create one of the fastest growing firms in the UK. Since its beginnings in a small room in Cheshire, 7 short years ago, the firm is now 200-strong, has seen early recruits develop to senior leadership roles, and proudly counts many of its staff as shareholders.
The Modern Law Awards will be held at The Hurlingham Club in London on Thurs 10th November 2016.
