Double shortlisting success in British Legal Awards

Great news!

Gordons has been short-listed in the British Legal Awards for:

  • Commercial Team of the Year (for employment work for The Book People); and
  • Best Use of Technology (for the firm’s legal desk).

This year’s judges (who decided on the short-listing) included BAE Systems group general counsel Philip Bramwell; John Heaps, chairman of the Yorkshire Building Society; Kirsty Cooper, group general counsel and company secretary of Aviva; 3i GC and company secretary, Kevin Dunn; and former Legal Counsel of the Year winner Lesley Wan, of Lloyds Banking Group.

The awards, which are hosted by Legal Week on 25 November 2015, will be decided by an independent judging panel, overseen by Alasdair Douglas, chairman of the City of London Law Society.

Obviously, it is fantastic to get short-listed. Fingers-crossed for the result next month.
