On the 15th of October, The Eclipse Proclaim Modern Law Awards took place to celebrate and highlight the outstanding talent and success of England and Wales’ top legal firms and industry professionals.
The grand event took place at the truly exquisite surrounds of the Hilton Park Lane London. Approximately 500 guests attended the ceremony, including some of the biggest, best and most respected law firms in this country. Following the huge success of last year’s grand event, the awards did not fail to disappoint. The event was hosted by one of Britain’s most popular award ceremony hosts; writer, broadcaster and former MP Gyles Brandreth, who kept his audience well entertained and in good spirit throughout the evening.
The awards took on a modern approach in identifying success across a range of areas within the legal industry including market development, compliance, business management, and best practice within the legal sector. The event saw 21 awards presented to the very best within these areas.
Searches UK were delighted to sponsor the ‘ABS of the Year for 26 — 100 employees’, a top category, which saw Schillings Solicitors take the well-deserved award. For this award, the team of judges, comprising of individuals at the very top of the legal and business community, had been asked to consider which firm could show the most successful implementation of strategic goals as demonstrated, for example, by development of new practice areas, financial performances and community involvement, reflecting the size of the business.
Chief Operating Officer at Schillings, Christopher Mills comments:
"The past year marks the culmination of a period of change that has lasted three years and which was only made possible because of the commitment and dedication of everyone at Schillings. To win three awards including ‘Law Firm of the Year’ and ‘ABS of the Year’ at this year’s Modern Law Awards is a real endorsement of the bold and innovated steps we’ve taken as a business in redefining what it means to be a law firm."
Andrew Stenning, Managing Director of Searches UK, said:
"It was an absolute honor for Searches UK to be involved in the Modern Law Awards Ceremony for a second year running and to be able to present Schillings with their Award. Schillings have clearly demonstrated a fantastic first year as an ABS and we wish them all the best for the future. The Modern Law team once again put together a wonderful evening which encapsulated today’s legal environment and was thoroughly enjoyable – we very much look forward to taking part again next year."
