We’re Finalists in the Irish Law Awards 2013!

I’ve got some really big news for you today:

Yesterday, the shortlist for the Irish Law Awards 2013 was announced…


We’ve been announced as finalists in the Law Firm Innovation Award category.

You can see for yourself – go here and select Law Firm Innovation Award: http://www.irishlawawards.ie/

Just being shortlisted as finalists is a MASSIVE DEAL!

I’m particularly delighted about the fact that we’ve made the Law Firm Innovation Award. This is a really tough category and it’s a national one; so we haven’t just made a provincial final, we’re competing on national level with some international outfits.

Innovation is at the centre of what we do. We constantly question how we might do things differently and better. This recognition is really encouraging. But, of course, it’s not about us; it’s about you: the reason why we do what we do after all. So now you know that you’re not the only one who thinks we’re great!

Finals are on 3rd May…
