Gillian has been shortlisted in the Lifetime Achievement Award category of the Law Society Excellence Awards. Gillian comments:

“I am honoured to be shortlisted for the Lifetime Achievement Award. As lawyers, what we do and how we do it can have a profound and lasting impact on the lives of our clients – it is this responsibility which guides so many of us. I am thrilled that my contribution to the legal profession and that of my fellow shortlisted candidates has been recognised in these prestigious awards.”

Law Society of England and Wales president Simon Davis said: “Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted. There are more than 9,000 firms and 190,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to be shortlisted for a Law Society Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the very best of the best.

“The justice system was already under immense pressure prior to Covid-19 and the situation has been exacerbated by the pandemic, making the incredible work that is being done by solicitors across the country day-in day-out to support their clients more vital than ever.”

Winners will be announced in a series of online ceremonies from 13-15 October.
