Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co’s work in the community has brought a double award win. Combined HR solutions associate Ruth Ormston was named ‘Champion of Justice’ at the London Legal Support Trust (LLST) Awards, while the law firm also won an award recognising its longstanding support of the annual LLST walks.
Ormston’s award recognises her commitment to supporting the work-life balance organisation Working Families. Involved with the charity since 2009, she has given time and expertise to its free legal helpline, which offers parents and carers advice on employment rights.
She has also instigated wider support by bringing together a team of Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co people to respond to the charity’s growing case load. As a result, it has become an ongoing pro-bono client of the firm.
The awards ceremony was held at the Royal College of Surgeons in London on 23 October 2014 as part of the LLST’s 10th birthday celebrations.
Ormston also collected an award for Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co’s support of the annual LLST walks. The law firm is one of 22 organisations that have taken part in every single walk organised by LLST over the past 10 years, with funds raised supporting legal advice centres that give free legal advice to those that cannot afford it.
