Nigel Priestley, Senior Partner at Ridley & Hall Solicitors scoops top accolade at the Modern Law Awards

Last night at the Modern Law Awards, Ridley & Hall received fantastic news. Nigel Priestley, Partner and Community Care solicitor won Lawyer of the Year.

The Modern Law Awards recognise and celebrate the benchmarks for best practice in the ever diverse, challenging and exciting landscape for the business of law. This was such a great achievement for Nigel.

Nigel Priestley commented on his victory “I am overwhelmed to be named Lawyer of the Year, it is such an honour. I am extremely proud of the team we have here at Ridley & Hall, they go above and beyond at everything they do and it’s great that these efforts are being recognised.”

Ridley & Hall Solicitors pride themselves on being a local Huddersfield firm with a national presence and this recognition demonstrates this.

Ridley & Hall had been shortlisted for three awards at the ceremony including Rising Star of the Year (Peter Kearney– adoption solicitor) and Best Marketing campaign.

The wonderful ceremony took place at The Hurlingham Club, London.

Unfortunately Nigel wasn’t able to attend the awards ceremony as he was in Uganda, where he was providing expertise and training (read more). Nigel helped set up the Twinning Link winning Link between Huddersfield Law Society and the Uganda Law Society where training is provided to Ugandan lawyers.

Adam, Managing Partner, collected the Award on Nigel’s behalf.  modern-law-awards
