Published: 27/09/2016

Birketts, the leading East of England law firm, has teamed up once again with Family Business United, to sponsor the East and East Anglia category of The Family Business Awards 2017. 

The awards, which were launched in 2012, are a celebration of the family business sector and have become a real highlight in the family business calendar. 

Paul Andrews, Founder of Family Business United and creator of The Family Business of the Year Awards is delighted with the way that the awards continue to evolve, adding "Each year the quality and quantity of nominations increases and the integrity and value of these awards increases. We are thrilled at the prospect of uncovering some great British family firms this year and look forward to finding out more about the businesses in due course."

Adam Jones, Head of Birketts’ Family-Owned Business Team said: “We are really excited about our quest to find the 2017 Family Business of the Year, and if previous years are anything to go by we can expect to uncover some true family business treasures. The awards are open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors. Family businesses make a huge contribution to the UK economy and we have some highly successful family-owned businesses in our region that deserve to be recognised.”

Nominations need to be entered online by 30 November 2016 and the awards will be presented in a Gala Reception at The May Fair Hotel in London on 8 June 2017.
