Paris Smith LLP has been shortlisted for Law Firm of the Year in The Lawyer Awards 2018 category of ‘Independent/Regional’ for South and Midlands.

The Lawyer Awards are the leading awards initiative bringing together over 1300 private practice lawyers and senior corporate counsel to reward best practice and celebrate excellence across the whole legal sector in a total of 28 awards.

Paris Smith’s Managing Partner, Peter Taylor, commented: “This is a strong endorsement of our position in the market place and how we are seen by others. I am delighted to see the team’s continuous hard work recognised at a national level. As the shortlisting is a reflection of everyone’s efforts across the firm, we shall be holding a draw to ensure everyone in the firm, whatever their role, has the opportunity to go to the Awards ceremony in London.”

The Awards winners will be announced at a black-tie dinner at The Grosvenor Hotel on London’s Park Lane at the end of June.

This shortlisting comes after the firm was recently awarded the prestigious Southampton Business Award for Established/Long Standing Business for its contribution to the economy and community in the city.
