Banner Jones shortlisted in three categories at Sheffield & District Law Society Awards

Leading regional law firm Banner Jones has once again been shortlisted for three awards at the upcoming Sheffield & District Law Society Awards, including Residential Property Team of the Year, and Employment Team of the Year.

Family Law Solicitor Lauren Mahon has also been nominated in the Rising Star category in recognition of her passion and commitment to providing advice to clients on all aspects of family law including divorce, finances and children arrangement orders.

The short listings mark another year of success for Banner Jones, which has won the Employment Team award for two consecutive years.

It’s conveyancing department, which is widely recognised for its customer service led approach and innovative use of technology, has also been shortlisted for the Residential Property of the Year Award in 2022 and 2023.

The winners of the awards will be announced at the annual awards ceremony which will take place on the 23rd of February at the historic Royal Victoria Hotel, Sheffield.

Commenting on the news, Banner Jones’ Chief Executive Simon Wright, who won Partner of the Year at the awards last year, said: “We are incredibly proud and privileged to have once again received such recognition from the Sheffield & District Law Society Awards.

“This is the third year in a row that both our conveyancing and employment law teams have been shortlisted for awards, and that really is testament to the hard work and dedication of every member of our team.

“Lauren also deserves particular recognition for her nomination in the Rising Star category. She has led on several complex cases since qualifying just a few years ago and has already supported over a hundred family law clients at what is often a difficult time in their lives.

“The event itself remains a firm favourite in our events calendar, and we are looking forward to once again being able to celebrate the achievements of the local legal community with our colleagues from across the industry.”

This is the third year in a row that the Banner Jones Employment Law team – which prides itself on being able to offer high quality advice in a user-friendly, cost-effective manner to individuals, businesses and charities - has been shortlisted for the Employment Team of the Year Award, which it won in 2022 and 2023.

The firm’s conveyancing department, which boasts teams in Chesterfield, Mansfield, Dronfield and Sheffield and is one of the largest and most experienced in the region, is also in the running for the Residential Property Team of the Year Award for the second year in a row.
