"It's a real honour to be recognised for the excellence of our service in a highly-competitive field"
Law firm Bromleys has been crowned professional services business of the year at the Pride of Tameside Business Awards.
The trophy was presented at a gala dinner at Dukinfield Town Hall attended by more than 300 people and hosted by radio and TV presenter Andy Crane.
Councillor Brenda Warrington, executive leader of Tameside Council, opened the event and praised businesses across the borough. She said this year’s awards had received more entries than ever.
The professional services business honour is the second accolade for Bromleys in consecutive years at the awards. In 2017, the firm won the corporate social responsibility prize.
Bromleys’ latest honour also follows its success at the 2018 Manchester Legal Awards, where it was named small law firm of the year.
During the past 12 months, the firm has also retained Investors in People Gold status and the Law Society’s Lexcel quality mark and Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation.
Bromleys is a three-partner firm based in Ashton-under-Lyne which provides legal services to individuals, families and businesses across Tameside and Greater Manchester.
It has a 57-strong team which has been boosted by a series of key appointments to cater for a growing number of instructions.
Bromleys has also launched the Tameside Women in Business networking forum and has increased its sponsorship of Curzon Ashton FC for this season.
The judging panel said: “Bromleys Solicitors are a consistent, excellent performer who have this year shown exceptional growth while achieving the Investors in People Gold award. They are a beacon of the borough.”
Bromleys’ senior partner Mark Hirst said: “It’s a real honour to be recognised for the excellence of our service in a highly-competitive field. This accolade acknowledges the expertise, dedication and commitment of our team to the business and wider Tameside communities.
“Awards such as this make everyone at Bromleys realise just how much their efforts are appreciated and how they make a difference for all of our clients. It is a real boost for everyone at the firm.”
