The Private Client Award category recognises the legal work and dedication to clients of those solicitors, such as Lesley, who work with individuals. Working within Beverley’s largest wills, trust and probate department, Lesley specialises in all aspects of estate and succession planning and has particular experience in advising families where disabilities are an issue. Lesley is also a well-known local speaker and regularly speaks and presents at local charity events, as well as participating in a number of charity fundraising schemes.
Commenting on being shortlisted, Lesley said: “I’m very honoured to be shortlisted and to have the chance for my work to be recognised amongst my peers. I’m looking forward to the award’s ceremony and am keeping my fingers crossed on the outcome.”
Launched in 2000, to recognise the outstanding legal talent across the region, the awards provide professionals the chance to come together for a memorable evening of networking, socialising and celebrating. The award categories themselves cover everyone from the biggest corporate firms to leading barristers, from senior partners to rising stars, and the event itself is a glittering black tie affair.
