The shortlist has now been revealed for the most prestigious British lawyer annual awards scheme, "The Lawyer" and our London LAWorld member, Simons Muirhead & Burton has been shortlisted (jointly with Slater and Gordon) for Litigation Team of the Year.   See  http://thelawyerawards.com/shortlist

The Lawyer received a record number of entries so competition was particularly fierce and the shortlisted firms were selected for excellence and are those who have set themselves apart from the rest of the legal industry this year.  The Lawyer Awards celebrate excellence across private practice, the public sector, commerce and industry, and the Bar.  Now in their 21st year, the Awards have established themselves as the leading awards initiative within the legal industry and are unquestionably the biggest event of the year for the British legal profession.

The winners will be revealed at the Awards ceremony in June 2015 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
