Ramsdens Solicitors is delighted to announce that we have been Highly Commended at the Legal Business Award 2020 in the Regional Firm of the Year category.

Ramsdens was recognised with this award due to its commitment to the local community in which it is situated. The firm has been providing legal advice to the people of Yorkshire and beyond for 150 years.

The judges commented: “The firm is not a Big Law brand but rather one that larger brands could learn from.”

Ramsdens has undergone impressive growth over the past decade, which judges said also helped to cement the impressive win.

The 23rd annual Legal Business Awards, which was hosted virtually in light of coronavirus, celebrate the very best in the legal profession and are consistently favoured by the industry’s leading lawyers as the most prestigious and highly-respected awards on the legal calendar. The ceremony had originally been scheduled for March, but was postponed to September due to the pandemic.

Paul Joyce, managing partner, commented: "We are incredibly proud to have been Highly Commended at this year's Legal Business Awards in the 'Regional/Offshore Firm of the Year' category alongside many leading regional firms. It is a real credit to all our staff who work tirelessly to ensure we continue to push the business forward and establish our position at the forefront of the Yorkshire legal industry.”

“The Covid-19 pandemic has been a testing time for everyone, including the members of the legal sector and the local communities we serve. This recognition provides a welcome boost to our hardworking and dedicated team, who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to ensure that our clients continue to receive the highest standard of service.

“It is our privilege to provide help and support to the people of Yorkshire, and we are thrilled to receive this award for doing something that we feel passionately about.”

Other firms nominated for the award included; Birketts, Shepherd and Wedderburn, Carey Olsen, Mourant and Myerson Solicitors.
