LAWYERS have spoken of their sense of achievement after claiming the runner-up spot at a national legal award ceremony.
Swain & Co Solicitors, based in South Street, Havant, beat scores of entrants to become a finalist for the Legal Aid Firm of the Year Award 2012.
The Legal Aid Practitioners Group held its annual awards in London to celebrate the work solicitors and barristers carry out on a daily basis. The judging panel commented on the variety of the areas of law Swain & Co cover under Legal Aid and the ‘extra mile’ they go.
Graeme Swain, managing partner, pictured here alongside Carol Storer, director of The Legal Aid Practitioners Group, said: ‘We were runners-up in the Legal Aid Firm of the Year and we are very proud that we made the final – what a fantastic result. We had a great evening, but more importantly the nomination and subsequent shortlisting reflected the skill and commitment of the whole team. The volume of compliments the team received from peers, clients and fellow professionals were the true win for us.’
