About the Awards

Celebrating the great wealth of legal talent and success within the region, the Northern Law Awards is the law event for all those practising and working in the legal industry in the North of England. Recognising success from across the career span with categories such as Trainee of the Year and Rising Star to Firm of the Year and the Outstanding Achievement, the awards give organisations the perfect opportunity to showcase and celebrate the talent of their firm, colleagues and team.



“We have been thrilled to be involved in the Northern Law Awards. One thing that has stood out to us about the Awards is the assessment process. The independent panel interviews really got us thinking about what differentiates us as a firm.

The team at Collingwood Legal have had a great evening at both of the award events that we have attended. The awards are well organised and the award dinner slickly run and hugely enjoyable. Our firm’s involvement in the Northern Law Awards has also helped provide longstanding benefits. To stand out as award winners has helped us in marketing our firm and attracting new business and talent.”

“The 2017 Northern Law Awards was another fabulous event. Northumbrian Water Property Solutions were proud to be title sponsor for the 3rd Year and seeing its popularity grow each year too from its creation. A great atmospheric event celebrating the passion of North East lawyers with a mix of both small and large firms as finalists. We congratulate all those who entered these awards showcasing a small part of your daily professionalism, hard work and care to those who you help and advise. We are grateful to have these fantastic people on our doorstep.”

“Once more, the Northern Law Awards 2017 was a hugely successful event showcasing the legal talent based throughout the region.

Everyone at Swinburne Maddison was humbled and extremely proud to be awarded both Team of the Year (Litigation and Dispute Resolution) and the coveted, Law Firm of the Year (6+ Partners). To be recognised in this way is a great achievement and a reflection of the calibre of our team and the quality and scope of work we undertake at Swinburne Maddison.

Finally, thanks must also go to the sponsors who support the event each year.”

Partner, Swinburne Maddison LLP

“TLW Solicitors won Employer of the Year in 2017 which was a fantastic achievement for the firm. Having won Law Firm of the Year (1-5 partners) in 2016, we were delighted to follow that up with Employer of the Year. This was a great accolade for TLW which recognised the work that has gone into making the firm a great place to work. Not only did the award give the whole team a welcome morale booster, it has really helped with recruitment of new staff, a number of whom have mentioned the press coverage was a factor in applying to join the firm.”
