A very busy few weeks here at LexRex Towers… We’ve just completed our first year in business – YIPPEE! And now we’re preparing our accounts. We’re all very excited to see our figures on paper, but not so excited about our impending tax bill…
So, what have we been up to?
Well, on September 19th we celebrated our first year in business with a FABULOUS party in Manchester, with some of our closest friends, wonderful clients and lovely contacts. By all accounts, a fabulous night was had by all.
In October, we were extremely pleased to welcome on board our fabulous event and party planning consultant, Kate Mackenzie. A fellow ex-practitioner, Kate really knows her lawyers but more importantly she puts on a great event! We are already looking forward to hosting an extremely exciting conference in April 2014 on behalf of one of our clients; which we have no doubt will draw the crowds from far and wide… More to follow on that front. *Watch this space*.
Also in October, we cheered on our client Aequitas Legal at the Law Society Excellence Awards 2013. We are very pleased to report that the firm took home the Excellence In Client Service Award, and despite missing out on the LexCel Award for Excellence in Practice Management, managing partner Sucheet Amin was, we’re told, “over the moon” at winning a gong.
We should point out that it was Aequitas’ first time entering the awards, so to be shortlisted for not one, but two awards, and to scoop (arguably) one of the most prestigious – was a MASSIVE achievement. Well done Such and the team, and onwards and upwards in 2014!
This month we’re looking forward to supporting Such and the team at the Manchester Young Talent Awards, which take place on Thursday 21st November. Once again we’ll be cheering for Such, as he’s shortlisted for the Legal Professional of the Year Award. Good luck Such!
The Manchester Legal Awards 2014 were announced last week, and we’ll be encouraging our clients to enter. If you need some help deciding upon which categories to enter, or some support in drafting your submissions, why not give us a shout – our awards entries are award-winning after all! The awards ceremony is taking place on Thursday 6th March, and will no doubt be THE event to attend in spring. We can’t wait.
We’ve also had a lot of great media coverage to celebrate recently. Of course, Aequitas Legal’s win at the Excellence Awards made a good story, and to date, we’ve had strong local success with Northwich law firm, Susan Howarth and Co’s new family law initiative.
Our favourite piece of coverage was probably Jo Norris’ comment in the Guardian Small Business Network article on the importance of good cashflow management. Excellent work Jo!
Legal consultancy, Zebra LC has been keeping us busy as managing director Zoe Holland moves and shakes across the PI market, providing due diligence advice on a number of high profile deals.
Finally… We can’t wait for the Christmas markets to return to Manchester on Friday 15th November, and we’re looking forward to a bit of a knees up and bratwurst all round, with the team at Ratio Law to celebrate a full year of working together. Happy days!
So, a lot going on here at the moment, but we’re always excited to meet new clients. So if you fancy a coffee and a chat, or a mulled wine and a mince pie, be sure to give us a shout.
