Congratulations to the winners of this year's The Lawyer/Hifal Awards. Shoosmiths & Harrisons deserves particular mention for scooping two awards - client care and management, while Doughty Street Chambers was, for the second year, winner of the Chambers award. Leigh Day & Co has certainly made its mark in recent years and its win as Law Firm of the Year was deserved.
The Pro Bono award was one of the hardest to judge, particularly as we were presented with so many examples of good projects. The winner, the Northern Circuit Free Representation and Advice Scheme, is a very worthwhile project.
We thank everyone participating in an event designed to highlight all that is good in the profession.
