Last night we attended the very glamorous Northern Law Awards at the Crowne Plaza in Newcastle upon Tyne. The whole event was excellent and it was great to get together with other North East legal professionals. Congratulations to all of the brilliant professionals and organisations that won awards and of course to all those nominated. The night was topped off with two big wins for Ben Hoare Bell
and we are delighted.

Ronagh was thrilled to accept a joint award for ‘Trainee of the Year’. Ronagh was recognised for her commitment and dedication to campaigning for justice for all. Ronagh will be moving to our Housing department soon to complete her next stage of training. Throughout her training Ronagh is also working on a project to further access to justice for young people in Newcastle. Well done Ronagh – very well deserved!

Ben Hoare Bell win Family Team of the Year

We were up against some very tough competition which meant we were equally shocked and delighted with this win.

The family team at Ben Hoare Bell continues to expand and now employs many specialist family solicitors including seven with specialist Law Society Children Panel status. The work the department does is certainly a team effort and this win is a great reflection of the work done by everyone in often difficult situations.
