It’s awards time again – fingers crossed.

We are delighted to be one of five firms short-listed for the 2014 Birmingham Law Society’s Law Firm of the Year Award.

The Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards

These prestigious awards have been showcasing the very best of the region’s legal talent since the inaugural event in 2002.

They are open to firms and individuals, across all levels of the legal spectrum, practicing in the West Midlands; from sole practitioners to trainee solicitors, barristers to paralegals.

Paul Hughes says

Paul Hughes, director at Wallace Robinson & Morgan said, “We were very pleased to hear that have been selected as finalists for the Law Society’s law firm of the year award.

The firm was established in 1855 and our business is based on traditional values.

We aim to keep our ‘trusted family firm’ reputation built up over the generations when dealing with the changes and challenges in today’s legal sector.

2013 was a big year of change for the firm as we embraced many new procedures, processes and technologies to further improve our working practice and overall client care.

We have embraced the idea of moving with the times and making sure those traditional values are still accessible in these modern times.

The shortlist judges have recognised that we put a high priority in providing our clients with an excellent service and have acknowledged the work we do to support community projects and to develop the talents of our trainees and other members of staff”.
