We have championed the role of the professional paralegal since we set up our business and have taken an active role in supporting the growth of paralegals in legal businesses across England and Wales.  The awards provide us with a much-needed opportunity to celebrate and recognise the achievements of those that play such a vital role in the industry.

Paralegals, in all their forms, are the backbone of the industry, often working in the shadows and these awards shine a much-needed light on the vital role they play in the delivery of Legal Services in the marketplace.”
