East Midlands-based law firm Nelsons has been shortlisted in three categories at the LEAP Modern Law Conveyancing Awards 2021.
The awards are said to recognise and celebrate success in the UK conveyancing market and are made up of 17 different categories.
Based in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, Nelsons said it has “fought off tough competition” to be shortlisted for the ‘Conveyancing Firm of the Year – Midlands’ category and ‘Property Team of the Year’.
In addition, CEO Stewart Vandermark has also made it into the final of the ‘Managing Partner of the Year’ category.
Chris Huntingford, partner and licensed conveyancer, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised in such prestigious awards for our industry. In the past 18 months, we’ve taken steps as a team to ensure our clients receive a fantastic service and that staff are cared for.
“However, one of our biggest successes has been our commitment to each other. One of our key behaviours is being a team player, which forms the fundamental basis of everything we do and the team has embodied that by rallying together at a difficult time, which, in turn, feeds through to our clients.”
Stewart Vandermark, chief executive, said: “I am incredibly proud of the entire conveyancing department for being shortlisted in such prominent awards and am also extremely humbled to have been shortlisted for ‘Managing Partner of the Year’.
“The team is thoroughly deserving of these accolades and I wish them the best of luck in November.”
The winners will be announced on 25 November.
