Stevens & Bolton has been named Law Firm of the Year: The Independents at The Lawyer Awards 2020, one of the most highly-regarded awards in the legal sector and the largest celebration of legal excellence in Europe.

The firm was selected for this prestigious award, ahead of six other firms from across the UK, by a judging panel of legal experts. The award was announced earlier this week via a virtual awards ceremony. The criteria assessed by the judges included evidence of strategic vision and strong leadership, strong financial management and growth, innovation in client service delivery, significant client wins and excellent talent management. This landmark success comes after the firm was highly commended last year in the category ‘Regional/Offshore Firm of the Year’ at the 2019 Legal Business Awards.

The firm has also this week been included, for the second year in a row, in The Times Best Law Firms 2021 listing, which highlights the top 200 legal practices in England and Wales plus Scotland’s top 40,as chosen by lawyers. 

Managing Partner Richard King commented: We are thrilled to have won this highly prestigious award and to feature once again in The Times Best Law Firms listing. It is a fantastic achievement for the firm and reflects the hard work of everyone here. My thanks go to all of them for the part they have played in making the firm what it is today.”
