Scott Rees & Co solicitors are celebrating this week after it was revealed that we had made the shortlist of finalists for the Red Rose Business Awards 2016.
It has certainly been a successful year for the Skelmersdale based personal injury specialists, as in September they were also recognised by the highly prestigious legal 500 publication, and the Partners at the firm could not be happier to be included in this year’s shortlist for Legal Business of the Year.
Scott Rees and Co Managing Partner, Royston Smith (pictured left), expressed his delight that the firm were being recognised for their work, saying: “To make the final shortlist for this award is a truly marvellous honour and we are absolutely delighted to be recognised for our work within the profession and with the community over the past 12 months.
“Since 2013 we have had to undertake some of the toughest challenges that there have ever been within the legal profession, following changes to Government legislation, and in doing so have had to develop the way we work to ensure we can sustain profitability and adapt at a time when so many other legal firms could not.
“In the last 12 months we have started to see all of our hard work pay off, with us being recognised in the Legal 500 for the first time in our history last year and now with the Red Rose Business Awards.”
The firm, who have been shortlisted for the award alongside six other law firms from around Lancashire, will now move on to the judging days on the 10th and 11th February, which are to be held at Blackburn Rovers Football Club.
After an interview with the judges, a winner will be decided and to be announced on the 10th March 2016 at the Empress Ballroom, Winter Gardens in Blackpool.
Since the Red Rose Business Awards were launched in 2011, they have steadily grown in stature and are now a centre-piece attraction for the business community in Lancashire. The awards ceremony is expected to be a sell out.
The awards ceremony itself will be a celebration of all that is good about Lancashire business, commerce and industry. Speaking about the awards, Royston added: “It really is a fantastic opportunity to promote success within the Lancashire business community and I would encourage any business to enter the awards. We are looking forward to attending the ceremony and meeting with other successful business from around the county.”
