Trowers & Hamlins were delighted to receive the Innovation Award at this year's DASLS Awards. We were also shortlisted for the Team of the Year award, and were extremely proud to accept our award at the celebratory ceremony that took place at a Gala Dinner on 2nd March 2017 at Sandy Park, Exeter.

  

We were recognised for our innovative career framework, for opening up opportunities for entering into the legal profession for those from a 'non-traditional' background.  This recognition, which has been well documented in the local media, has been a great profile-raiser for us as a firm.  Trowers & Hamlins merged with Stones Solicitors in Exeter in October 2015, and winning such an award from DASLS clearly demonstrates the benefit of our integrated offering in this region.

  

We were commended by the judges for anticipating the needs and aspirations of aspiring lawyers from all backgrounds, by developing a dedicated career path for paralegals; and by providing funding for training and qualifications; and by allotting trainee solicitor roles for those in our paralegal ranks. 

  

We also chose to enter our Travel Team for the Team of the Year award.  The merger of Trowers & Hamlins with Stones has allowed for growth and expansion of our offering to both individuals and insurers. Our Travel Team is a truly lawyer-led specialist legal team, based in the South West, but whose direct competitors are both national and international. The team itself provides legal services to clients across the whole of the UK.  We felt that this should be recognised across the region and we were extremely proud that our Travel Team was also shortlisted.

  

Through the process for each entry, we were encouraged to showcase our work and demonstrate our innovation, integrity and leadership in the legal profession, and to highlight why this sets us apart as a dynamic law firm. We were pleased to be able to do that.

  

The awards evening was a thoroughly enjoyable and positive event. The speakers were memorable; and we value an opportunity that allows lawyers from many disciplines and firms to meet and share with each something of what we all do to serve our clients and society in general. We will certainly be looking forward to next year's event.
