On 23 July, trainees from Anthony Collins Solicitors will host an ‘experience day’, which will involve various activities and presentations, with lawyers and non-lawyers from across the firm.
The Chair of the PCA Presiding Judges, Paul Stibbard TEP, described the quality of this year’s finalists as "extremely high", causing the judges to be "spoiled for choice". ACS faced a high level of competition in the Vulnerable Client Advisory Team of the Year category, including an international law firm. Despite this, our PPM team emerged victorious.
The Presiding Judges explained this was because "Anthony Collins Solicitors stood out for the depth and breadth of their expertise within the area of specialisation and showed a real sensitivity towards multi-cultural, multi-faith matters. It was clear that they work incredibly hard to get the best outcome for their vulnerable clients and are unwavering in their approach".
One of our PPM Partners, Donna Holmes, commented that the bestowal of this award is "recognition of many years of hard work, great client service and a real passion shared by the entire firm to make a real and visible difference to the lives of vulnerable individuals".
