City lawyer shortlisted

Have your say

Unity Law, the Sheffield-based specialist disability and discrimination law firm, has been shortlisted in the Niche Law Firm category of the annual Yorkshire Lawyer Awards.

The Fountain Precinct-based firm was one of the first to become a limited company and the first to be controlled by a multi-disciplinary team that combines solicitors, barristers and business people.

It is also making major use of no win, no fee principles to help clients with disability and discrimination claims, who might previously been frightened off by the prospect of lengthy legal proceedings and defendants employing expensive lawyers.

Unity Law played a key part in the ground-breaking A2B for All campaign to show how disabled people face discrimination when they try to use public transport and is currently planning to launch a smartphone App, developed with Disabled Motoring UK, to help disabled motorists to locate car parking bays reserved for their use.
