Laceys Solicitors were very proud to be crowned Law Firm of the Year (100 + employees) at the prestigious 2019 Dorset Legal Awards last week.

Jonathan Ogden, Senior Partner at Laceys, said: “I am very pleased that Laceys has been recognised by the judges as a premier law firm in Dorset through winning the Law Firm of the Year. The award is a reflection of the outstanding commitment of our lawyers and support staff in providing a first class service to all our clients. Well done everyone!”

Laceys are a forward-thinking growing firm, demonstrated in over 11% growth in staff in 2018. Laceys also has an impressive staff retention rate, reflected in over half of the current partners having joined the firm as graduate trainees.

Andrew Alder, from Saffrey Champness, who was the Sector Specialist Judge for the award, added: “The judges of the Large Law Firm of the Year category were looking for a firm which provides excellent client service, attracts and retains quality team members and achieves strong financial performance. Laceys provided evidence that all three criteria were comfortably met and scored above the other finalists, although it was a close competition. It was apparent that the firm has a strong identity and a culture which supports its team, rewarding commitment and initiative.”

Laceys offers legal support across a wide range of areas, enabling us to advise clients across both their business and individual needs.

“I’ve been working with Sam for a couple of years on a very wide range of marketing communications. Sam has a natural attention to detail and a refreshing attitude to the work we’ve collaborated on. The launch of the new Laceys site is now the benchmark for the brand and business offering. Sam has been at the heart this journey and has been a key driver for the consistency any strong brand should have. It’s exciting to be working with a solicitor’s firm that really understands their vast audience.”
