Solicitors Journal Awards

The Solicitors Journal Awards 2017 took place on 17 May and saw more than 460 of the legal profession elite come together to showcase and celebrate their achievements over the last year.

The Awards were hosted by Brian Moore, former England rugby player and City litigation partner, who entertained the crowd with tales of his antics on and off the field and then presented the awards to the deserving winners.

Sponsored by Gowling WLG and InfoTrack, the 2017 Awards saw winners in 19 categories covering all aspects of legal practice which were judged by an influential and respected judging panel.
