Cheltenham lawyers in the running for five legal excellence awards

Awards for legal excellence are on the cards for Harrison Clark Rickerbys in the Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Law Society Legal Excellence Awards next week – the firm has a total of eight finalists in five of the six categories.

Shortlisted for Law Firm of the Year and Corporate Social Responsibility Firm of the Year, several of the firm’s lawyers are also finalists – associate Charlotte Melhuish and senior associate Rachael Reeves are in the running for the Lawyer of the Year award, the firm’s Employment and Education team and its Litigation team are shortlisted for Team of the Year, and both trainee Emma Glazzard and associate Tom Kirkhope are in the running for Junior Lawyer of the Year.

Rich Wilkey head of the firm’s Cheltenham office, said: “This is a truly excellent showing and accurately reflects the quality of our people and our teams. I know that we have some great competition, but I’m sure we will all enjoy the awards evening and we hope for plenty of cause for celebration afterwards.”

The awards evening, on 23 November, will be held at the De Vere Cotswold Water Park hotel at South Cerney, hosted by ITV weather presenter Bob Crampton.
