Birketts nominated for Independent Law Firm of the Year

06 September 2021

Top 100 law firm Birketts is in the running for the British Legal Awards’ Independent Law Firm of the Year, having been short-listed alongside three other UK law firms.

The prestigious awards, now in their 12th year and hosted by International, are the premier legal awards in the UK, representing the best of the best within the UK’s legal community.

Birketts has continued taking huge strides in the last 12 months. Following on from a merger with insurance specialists EC3 Legal and a new office in London the firm has achieved a record annual turnover, a ranking of 58th in the UK top 100 law firms, and welcomed more than a dozen Partners through recruitment and internal promotions. These successes have seen the firm collect a series of other awards and nominations, most recently seeing the Property Team nominated at the EG Awards 2021.

Jonathan Agar, Birketts’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “I know how hard all of our lawyers have worked in the last 12 months and this recognition is credit to their perseverance in a rapidly-changing business landscape. We know our clients have had to face unprecedented circumstances due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic; despite the obstacles it has presented Birketts with, I am consistently impressed with my colleagues’ commitment to do more for those we advise. This nomination is well-deserved and I look forward to the ceremony, once again taking place in person, in London’s Park Lane this November.”

Senior Partner James Austin added: “We are delighted to be short-listed as one of the best independent law firms in the UK. The efforts of everyone at Birketts has set us on a fantastic trajectory, supporting even more businesses and individuals nationwide, offering clear advice with excellent client service at a competitive price. Congratulations and the best of luck to all those nominated.”
