Harrogate law firm McCormicks Solicitors has won five awards from a leading finance e-zine.
The firm took five titles in the 2017 ACQ Law Awards, which this year received a record number of nearly 40,000 nominations.
Senior Partner Peter McCormick OBE was named as UK Gamechanger of the Year, while the practice took regional titles for Sport, Media and Entertainment Law Firm of the Year, Corporate and Commercial Law Firm of the Year, Commercial Litigation Law Firm of the Year and Private Client Law Firm of the Year.
ACQ Editor in Chief Jake Robson said: “Exceptional individuals, teams and firms across the marketplace represent the very best in their field from around the world and truly deserve the accolade of being an ACQ Law Award winner. The legal sector contributes billions in currency to the global economy, much of which is derived from exports. The ACQ Law Award categories have been carefully chosen to reflect the variety of work undertaken by business lawyers working at law firms and in company legal departments. All category winners are in effect, a brand. In one sense, perhaps the most important sense, a brand is a promise. You know what you’re going to get with a well-branded product or service. It takes a lot of time, money and very hard work to build and maintain great brands, brands that can speak volumes in just a few syllables. It’s shorthand for what you are.
“All category winners in the ACQ Law Awards 2017 represent this ethos and this year, our dedicated subscribers have once again recognised the genuine leaders in the market. The quality of this year's entries is astonishingly high and a testament to the fact that the profession continues to innovate and deliver high-quality services.”
McCormicks Solicitors has added to its Awards tally several times already this year, including with the title of Best in Sports Law Services in the 2017 Global Awards from Corporate LiveWire and Corporate Solicitors of the Year for the UK from the same publication. In addition, Peter McCormick was named Agriculture Lawyer of the Year for the UK by Finance Monthly magazine.
