Michelmores shortlisted in the 2018 Devon & Somerset Law Society’s Legal Awards
Michelmores' Disputed Wills & Trusts team has been shortlisted for Team of the Year in the 2018 Devon & Somerset Law Society’s Legal Awards.
The awards, now in their third year, celebrate and recognise the achievements of those in the legal profession and their contribution to local communities and the economy.
The Firm's Disputed Wills & Trusts team is the largest team specialising exclusively in disputes relating to wills, trusts and the administration of estates in the South West.
The news comes after Tony Cockayne, Head of Michelmores' Disputed Wills & Trusts team, was announced as a Leading Individual for Contentious Trusts and Probate in this year's Legal 500 rankings – described as 'really going into battle to get the best outcome'. Barny Croft, Senior Associate in the team, was also recognised as a 'Next Generation' lawyer for the same practice area, and Jennifer Ridgway and Miles Farren were named as Recommended Lawyers.
Tony Cockayne commented:
"It is fantastic to be shortlisted in the Devon & Somerset Law Society's Legal Awards. The team has worked incredibly hard this year, and it is great news to see that this has been recognised."
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 1 March 2018.
