Frodsham based law firm Rowlinsons Solicitors has been shortlisted in the Practice Management category at the Law Society Excellence Awards.
The award is given to firms who hold the Law Society’s coveted Lexcel quality standard and show new and innovative ways of implementing Lexcel.
Andrew Graves, Director, Rowlinsons Solicitors said: "We are delighted to be short listed for this Award.
“Gaining the Lexcel standard and maintaining it year on year is an achievement in itself as any Lexcel law firm will tell you, so to go on to be short listed for this award is fantastic recognition for everyone in the firm.
“It’s also good news for our clients. They are the ones who benefit the most from our Lexcel status.”
The Law Society Excellence Awards winners will be announced by BBC broadcaster Mishal Husain at a gala awards dinner on 22 October 2013 at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge, London.
