PrintQualitySolicitors, the UK’s leading network of solicitors, announces that two firms in the network are nominated to receive the prestigious Law Firm of the Year* accolade at The Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards 2015.

The Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards have been recognising the best of the region’s legal talent for over a decade and are now in their 14th year.

The key criteria for the highly respected Law Firm of the Year award include exceptional client care processes, ethics, commitment to staff and achievement of business objectives. Both Talbots and Davisons fall into the ‘5 to 15’ partners sub-category of this award, and are competing against two other local firms.

Martyn Morgan, director, QualitySolicitors’ Talbots said: “Being nominated for this prestigious award is a fantastic achievement for Talbots. It is a testament to the hard work of our talented team who are focused on providing top quality service that always puts the customer first. Thanks to them I’m sure we will continue to be a leading provider of legal services in the region.”

Darryl Wilkes, director, QualitySolicitors’ Davisons said: “We are absolutely delighted to be nominated for this award. We expanded substantially in 2014 and this nomination acknowledges the firm’s progress as well as our work in support of the local community and commitment to corporate social responsibility. This is all thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff.”

Eddie Ross, CEO, QualitySolicitors said: “It’s very exciting to see two QualitySolicitors firms in the running for such a well-respected award in the Birmingham region; no doubt there will be some friendly rivalry at the awards ceremony! The nominations show that taking a client focussed, innovative approach to legal services is delivering exceptional service and business success, and we’re very proud to see both firms recognised and celebrated for their hard work.”

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 19 March 2015 at the International Convention Centre.

QualitySolicitors has introduced a range of initiatives to improve customer service, such as free first advice, fixed fee consultations, Saturday opening and a clear price guarantee.

The firm is also piloting a new online platform (initially targeted at clients seeking divorce advice) which allows clients to review and sign off forms online and send scanned copies of personal and financial documents from their own computers. This is a first for the legal industry and saves both clients and law firms time and money.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
