Gordons win big at 2011 Yorkshire Lawyer Awards

Gordons is celebrating after taking home the private client award at the 2011 Yorkshire Lawyer Awards.

The 11th annual Yorkshire Lawyer Awards, in association with Park Court Chambers, saw the highest number of entries on record and an array of quality winners across 18 different categories following a gala dinner at the Queens Hotel, Leeds, on 5 October.

The firm’s contentious trust and estates team collected the private client award, sponsored by Towry. The award celebrates outstanding talent in the field of private client across the Yorkshire region.

The awards were judged by a prestigious panel from the Yorkshire legal community including joint presidents of the awards, Jeremy Shulman of Shulmans Solicitors and Peter McCormick of McCormicks Solicitors.

Commenting on the award, Gordons’ managing partner Paul Ayre said: “To win this award which has been voted by our peers is a huge achievement. This recognition shows just how far we have come in a relatively short space of time and demonstrates that we are the team of choice in Yorkshire and a real and credible alternative to the more established London firms.”
