Leading Barnsley law firm MKB Solicitors LLP has won the prestigious Law Firm of the Year (1 ’10 Partners) award at the annual Yorkshire Legal Awards held at New Dock Hall, Royal Armouries in Leeds.
In one of the most competitive categories of the night, MKB beat off competition from law firms across the entire Yorkshire region to get the vote from a respected panel of judges.
The judges recognised MKB’s notable impact within the legal market over the past 12 months in the face of a difficult industry climate, the quality of their legal service, and a significant contribution to the legal community and the wider local community, particularly in Barnsley.
MKB’s success follows on from their achievement at the Yorkshire Legal Awards in 2014 when former Managing Partner, David Wright, won the Yorkshire Lawyer of the Year award.
Steven Dawson, Senior Partner at MKB, said: “We are thrilled that the whole team at MKB has been recognised for the outstanding efforts they have made over the past year. This award has been achieved as a result of our team consistently going above and beyond, both in the quality of their legal work, and also in the way they contribute to our community. We are delighted to have been voted Yorkshire Law Firm of the Year.”
Ben McFeely, Employment Solicitor and Business Development Manager, said: “A fantastic evening in front of a room full of leading names from our industry was topped off with this accolade. Being the only law firm from Barnsley to have won an award, we are proud to bring this award back to our area, and keep our town at the forefront of the regional legal market.”
