'˜It has been a very busy and productive year,' said Charles Derham, associate director. '˜We have not only represented clients that have been through traumatic cases of child and sexual abuse, getting them attention, recognition and apologies from some large organisations, but also explored new ways of talking about our work.' 

The team has also taken part in various charity initiatives including a skydive. The winner will be announced on November 23.
