Hillyer McKeown (HM) is delighted to be shortlisted for the prestigious Law Society Excellence Awards in the Marketing and Communications category for the second year running.

The submission promoted International Women’s Day 2018, which ran from 5th to 9th March 2018, and one of the objectives of the campaign was to challenge the traditional idea of who can succeed in the legal sector.

The campaign involved various men and women from across the firm displaying positive messages from trailblazing women, and statistics reflecting HM’s cultural values. The team behind the campaign is thrilled that the work has been recognised at such a high level, contributing to raising the visibility of women and promoting positive cultural values which mirror those of HM.

Law Society president Christina Blacklaws said: “There are more than 9,000 firms and 140,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to be shortlisted for an Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the best of the best.

“All those shortlisted should be congratulated for the work they to support their clients, many of whom are navigating complex and challenging legal problems.

“At a time of immense pressure on the justice system, the incredible work being done by solicitors across the country should be applauded.”

The winners of what is celebrated as the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales, will be at the Law Society’s Excellence Awards ceremony in London on 17 October.
