Wards Solicitors’ shortlisted for Bristol Law Society’s 2016 CSR Firm of the year award

  • 19th Sep 2016


Bristol Law Society has represented lawyers in Bristol for almost 250 years and at its Annual Awards Dinner next month will celebrate those who have made the biggest impact.

There are 12 different awards and this year, Wards Solicitors has been shortlisted for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Firm of the Year, awarded for showing notable commitment to support causes or projects in the region.

“Best of the best in the profession locally”

Bristol Law Society’s President, John Moriarty, said: “Over the last 40 years, there has been a greater than fourfold increase in the number of lawyers practising in Bristol.

“As a consequence, Bristol Law Society, shortly to be 250 years old, has adapted to meet the needs of all its members, be they a sole practitioner, a multi-branch multi-disciplinary firm or an international behemoth. It has sought to represent all of the profession whether local, regionally or nationally.

“This Annual Awards Dinner represents the best of the best in the profession locally. It recognises achievements over the past year not only of the winners but also those individuals, teams and organisations nominated and shortlisted. It is a rare social occasion when the profession can come together and enjoy local success.”

  • The event, now in its seventh year, will be held at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre on October 13 and hosted by the BBC’s legal correspondent, Clive Coleman, a former barrister and comedy writer. The chosen charity this year is Cancer Research UK.
