Director Gillian Bishop shortlisted in Excellence Awards 2017

We are delighted to announce that Family Law in Partnership director Gillian Bishop has been shortlisted in the Law Society Excellence Awards 2017.

Gillian, a very senior and highly experienced family lawyer, and founder of both Family Law in Partnership and FLiP Faculty, has been shortlisted in the category Solicitor of the Year – Private Practice. The criteria for the award is set out below:

“The award recognises an outstanding contribution made by a solicitor in private practice. The winner will be someone in a legal practice who is seen by colleagues as going ‘that extra mile’. This maybe in the context of work they are doing in a particular subject area or case; or they may have proposed and implemented business solutions which have proved beneficial in securing outstanding results for their firm and clients. Whether working in the corporate world or with private clients the winner of this award brings professionalism and commitment to all that they do.”

Tony Cherry, partner at DAC Beachcroft and John Westwell, managing partner at Foot Anstey will judge the category and the winner will be announced at an awards dinner held in London on 19th October 2017.

Congratulations to all of the candidates shortlisted in this year’s Excellence Awards.
