A Sheffield solicitor is celebrating after his achievements were described as ‘outstanding’ at the Law Society Excellence Awards on Tuesday.
Chris Fry, of Unity Law Ltd, was highly commended in the category ‘Solicitor of the Year - Private Practice’.
The judges were impressed with how he has ‘developed innovative campaigns’ and ‘tirelessly lobbied to ensure the rights of those with disabilities are protected and improved’.
Nick Fluck, Law Society President, said: “The Excellence Awards have attracted a record number of entries in 2013, and standards were incredibly high - evidence in itself that the legal sector, amid turbulent and challenging times, is ever resilient and evolving.
“Chris Fry should be justly proud of the great work he has done which has led to this recognition. The Law Society congratulates him on this huge achievement.”
