A Sheffield law firm has been nominated for a prestigious national award.

Crater Law Solicitors has been shortlisted in the ‘Excellence in Client Service’ category at The Law Society Excellence Awards.

Jonathan Smithers, president of The Law Society, said: “The awards are a reminder of the value of the all too often unsung work of solicitors.

“I am proud that my profession has so many impressive individuals who continue to innovate and thrive even in challenging economic and legislative environments, seeking to serve their clients and communities in the best way that they possibly can.

“I am delighted, on behalf of the Law Society and the profession, to have this opportunity to celebrate the contributions made to society, to business and to the legal sector by this year’s nominated individuals, teams and firms.

“It is inspiring and motivating to read of the fantastic work being done by solicitors across the country and the profession. I congratulate this year’s finalists and look forward very much to meeting them at the awards ceremony in October.”

The finalists were selected by a panel of senior industry experts and reveal a breadth of talent throughout the profession in England and Wales, from small local practices and in-house teams, to large city firms.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony hosted by BBC Radio 4 Today and BBC News presenter Mishal Husain at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel in London on October 22. The Law Society is the independent body which represents the legal profession.
