Wards shortlisted in the Devon and Somerset Law Society Awards

Wards shortlisted in the Devon and Somerset Law Society Awards

We are thrilled to announce that Wards has been shortlisted in two categories for the prestigious 2024 Devon and Somerset Law Society awards.

The DASLS Legal Awards, which are judged by a panel of nine independent judges, recognise the achievements of those who have gone the extra mile for their clients, their community and their profession.

Shortlisted:  Law Firm of the Year (£4m+) 

Being shortlisted for “Law Firm of the Year” is a tremendous achievement for us. It reflects our commitment to providing exceptional legal services and first class client care across each of our practice areas. Aside from showing our legal expertise, judges were also keen to see tangible examples of staff engagement and training, as well as great teamwork.   A meaningful CSR programme, looking at how we make a positive impact on our local communities, was another important requirement in this category.

Shortlisted:  Private Client Team of the Year

Our Wills and Probate team was put forward in this category, and we're delighted to have been shortlisted.  Judges wanted to see clear evidence of a teamwork culture as well as excellence in client service delivery.  The panel was especially keen to hear  examples of how lawyers go 'beyond the call of duty' to support their clients - which is something which we pride ourselves on, as a firm.

Commenting, Wards' Managing Partner Jenny Pierce said: “It is fantastic to be shortlisted in the Devon & Somerset Law Society’s Legal Awards. The teams have worked incredibly hard this year, and it is great news to see that this has been recognised.”

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Exeter on 20 June 2024.
