President of ILEX, Susan Silver was delighted to hear so many ILEX members were being recognised in this way: “Legal Executives continue to go from strength to strength. This is only the fourth year that Legal Executives have been eligible to enter the awards and having seven shortlisted for the one category, in such well recognised and respected awards is wonderful.”

John Wotton, Law Society President said: “The standard of entries for this year’s Excellence Awards has been exceptionally high, and selecting the shortlist has been a challenge for the judges.
“The Excellence Awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate what is great about the legal profession, which in recent years has experienced a turbulent economic climate and now faces the challenges created by the introduction of ABS.”
The shortlisted lawyers will now be judged by: Sioban Calcott, head of Banbury Litigation (FILEX), Brethertons and Darren Hill, head of Claims and Debt Recovery, United Utilities Legal Department. The winner will be announced at a gala awards dinner on the 18 October 2011.
