Professional of the Year 2018 nomination at Law Society Awards

Each year at around this time, The Wolverhampton Law Society have their annual Awards and Dinner evening.

Solicitors joined financial advisers, accountants, estate agents, and bankers to celebrate the fifth annual Wolverhampton Law Society dinner and awards at the Molineux Stadium.

Four awards were presented with the winners chosen by an independent panel of leading business figures – Her Honour Judge Helen Hughes, the chief executive of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Corin Crane, the Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Phil Page, Vicky Price from the city’s Grand Theatre and Peter Walton from the University of Wolverhampton.

The awards span four different categories:

Young Professional of the Year, Professional of the Year, Professional Services Firm of the Year and Community Champion of the Year.

Within each category the Law Society invite members to nominate individuals and firms.

Prior to the evening, we were thrilled to receive a letter from the Wolverhampton Law Society informing us that Paul had been both nominated and shortlisted in the Professional of the Year category.

Whilst, on the evening, Paul did not win in his category, he was delighted to have been a finalist and importantly to have been recognised by his fellow peers for the work he does locally.

Gareth Ruddock, President of the Wolverhampton Law Society, who chaired the evening, said: Our annual dinner and awards acknowledges the important role played by the professional services sector in supporting the businesses of Wolverhampton and the surrounding area.

It is a thriving sector and that was reflected in the excellent nominees in all the categories. As ever, the awards were hotlycontested and produced some very deserving nominees and winners.

The evening was a great celebration of our city’s legal and professional services sector.
