This Year’s Yorkshire Lawyer of the Year is Karen James.
Huge congratulations from Florit Brooke to Ramden’s very own Karen James on picking up the 2015 Yorkshire Lawyer of the Year award at last night’s ceremony held at New Dock Hall in Leeds. Whilst it comes as no surprise to any of us, nor anyone who works with her, she appeared genuinely overcome to have receive the award. Describing herself as “giddy” Karen was supported by a very vociferous team from Ramdsens, which also picked up the award for best law firm in the 11-30 Partner category. The Presidents’ Award went to eminent silk, Robert Smith QC.
The evening was another sellout event organised by Barker Brooks, publishers of Yorkshire Legal News, the regional hub for legal news.
Other notable congratulations go out to:
DLA Piper in the category of Law Firm (31+ Partners)
Addleshaw Goddard for Commercial Property
Irwin Mitchell in Dispute Resolution
Squire Patton Boggs in the category of Corporate and Commercial Lawyers and
Callcredit for the In-house Lawyers Award.
It was a hugely well attended event, with superb food and entertainment from the band ‘Hipster’.
Our congratulations go out to all the winners and our thanks to the representatives from Schofield Sweeney and Baker Tilly on our table, who contributed to a very entertaining evening.
