Corbett Le Quesne were finalists in three categories at the Family Law Awards ceremony in London.
They were once again in the running for Family Law Firm of the Year – South, Family Law Legal Support Team of the Year and Lizzie Keogh (pictured), the Office Manager, was nominated for Family Law Champion. These are the top awards for family lawyers and Corbett Le Quesne has won and been shortlisted several times in different categories over the years.
This year they were awarded Highly Commended for Family Legal Support Team. This award is designed for ‘a team or individual working to support the practice of family law solicitors that has demonstrated that it has provided an outstanding quality of legal service in the family law field and also displayed high levels of teamwork.’
Lexis Nexis said that the Family Law Awards: “bring the family law community together for its biggest night of the year, celebrating excellence, networking and recognising its vital contribution to society. Now in its twelfth year, the Family Law Awards were launched in 2011 to recognise the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements.”
Advocate Corbett commented: “We are so proud of our team and it is fantastic that our brilliant support staff have been recognised for going above and beyond and helping maintain our status as one of the top family law firms not just in Jersey but in the whole of the UK too. The Highly Commended accolade means we were voted second in this new category. We were really excited to see Lizzie’s name up on the big screen at the awards. Lizzie arranged three excellent conferences this year which is one of the main reasons she was recognised as deserving this honour by the legal community.”
Lizzie said: “I was so thrilled to have been shortlisted in this new Family Law Champion award category and how wonderful that we were highly commended in the Family Support Team category. It’s great that the teams behind the lawyers have been recognised for their hard work.”
