Following the announcement of the shortlist for the Birmingham Law Society Awards 2019, Anthony Collins Solicitors can proudly reveal our shortlisting in four categories. 

Mirroring last year's success, the firm will vie for:

  • Trainee of the Year - Jas Atwal 
  • Paralegal of the Year - Rachel Sutcliffe and Amber Sutton 
  • Excellence in Client Service - Housing sector; and procurement, projects and construction teams
  • Law Firm of the Year (Regional)

Last year, the firm won Business Team of Year, Private Client Team of the Year, Paralegal of the Year, and Firm of the Year (16 partners or more).  The shortlisting comes on the back of the firm's most successful year, which saw revenue increase by 17.4% to £19.5 million, and profits increase by 32% to £5.3 million. 

The awards ceremony takes place on 14 March.
