Warner Goodman LLP named Law Firm of the Year

  • Posted

Hampshire based law firm Warner Goodman LLP have been awarded the coveted prize of Law Firm of the Year at the 2014 LawNet Awards.  Ian Curtis, Managing Partner for the firm, attended the annual conference and awards dinner, held on 14th November, and collected the award on behalf of the firm.

“I am delighted that we were victorious in winning the top prize of the evening,” commented Ian.  “We were shortlisted for three awards in addition to this – Young Lawyer of the Year, Team of the Year and Best Digital Presence.  To be shortlisted for a total of four awards was a fantastic achievement in itself, but to leave the evening with the title of Law Firm of the Year was overwhelming.”

The awards were open to legal practices who are members of LawNet, the leading national network for independent law firms.  Chris Marston, Chief Executive of LawNet, said:   “The aim of our annual awards is to get to the heart of what makes an innovative law firm, underpinned by a commitment to excellence, and these were outstanding examples of that ethos.  We set high quality and management standards for members, and that helps to maintain the parity between our firms, which in turn leads to a cooperative powerhouse effect, where everyone benefits from collaboration and networking – and that’s evident in this year’s award winners.”

Ian concluded, “To win this award we were required to demonstrate our ability and results in a number of different areas, including growth in profits, fees and the size of our teams, while always keeping the client in mind and implementing initiatives to enable us to do so.  All members of staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure our continued growth and high customer satisfaction, and to return to the office with this award is true recognition for all the efforts that everyone in the firm has put in over the last year”.
