Celebrating success at the Dorset Legal Awards
All of us at Ellis Jones Solicitors are beyond proud to have won ‘Firm of the Year’ at the Dorset Legal Awards 2018.
Paul Kanolik, a Senior Associate in our Banking & Finance Litigation Department, won ‘Lawyer of the Year’.
The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to our Managing Partner Nigel Smith, being recognised for his contribution to the legal profession in Dorset as well as his outstanding leadership of the firm.
The Dorset Legal Awards were launched by legal recruitment consultancy ASH Elite in association with IT consultancy Quostar as a way of bringing Dorset’s legal community together. The ceremony took place on Friday 23rd February at the Bournemouth International Centre and saw the best legal talent in the Dorset Area come together to celebrate each others success.
More than 200 nominations were received from 25 firms with an independent judging panel whittling this down to a shortlist of 42 across 14 categories. We feel honoured to have won three prestigious awards out of so many deserving nominees.
We send our thanks to Ash Elite and Quostar for organising such a fantastic night, as well as sending our congratulations to all of the award winners.
