Birketts, the premier East of England law firm, has beaten off stiff competition to win the ‘Law Firm of the Year: The Independents – Regional’ category at this year’s The Lawyer Awards.

Held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair on Tuesday 25 June 2019, The Lawyer Awards commend excellence in the profession across private practice, the public sector, commerce and industry, and the Bar.

Jonathan Agar, Chief Executive Officer at Birketts, commented: “The Lawyer Awards are now in their 25th year and are recognised within the legal profession as the leading awards initiative within the industry. This year, over 60 judges from across the industry debated entries from law firms, companies and barristers' chambers.”

James Austin, Senior Partner, who collected the award on behalf of the firm, added: "The shortlist was an incredibly competitive field and demonstrates the strength of the legal services offering outside London. Winning this significant award is testament to the strength in depth that the firm now has and acknowledges the firm’s focus upon technical excellence and impeccable client service.”
