Leading East Midlands law firm Nelsons has been shortlisted in two categories at The Legal 500 UK Awards 2020 – which recognises elite legal practitioners and firms based on comprehensive research.
The Legal 500 conducted more than 50,000 interviews to ascertain the shortlist for the awards, which aims to reward the best in-house and private practice teams and individuals over the past 12 months.
Nelsons has beaten strong competition to be nominated in the Private Client (East Midlands) Firm of the Year (outside London) category, which includes agriculture and estates, charities and not-for-profit, contentious trusts and probate, family, and personal tax, trusts and probate. Partner and Solicitor Kevin Modiri – who joined Nelsons in 2013 and specialises in inheritance disputes – has also made it onto the Private Client Individual of the Year (outside London) shortlist.
Stewart Vandermark, Chief Executive at Nelsons, said: “I am so proud that Nelsons has been shortlisted in not one, but two categories, which reflects how strong our private client teams are – being the selected law firm from the East Midlands against a long list of very strong contenders in the region is a real credit to the entire company.
“I’d also like to congratulate Kevin on his nomination for the Private Client Individual of the Year award outside London. His drive and passion for the job has clearly impressed The Legal 500 and made him stand out against a whole host of talented professionals from across the country.”
Earlier this year, Nelsons was recommended in an impressive 21 categories in the latest edition of The Legal 500 2020 rankings. Since the start of 2019, Nelsons has also taken home nine prestigious awards – including being named the large law firm of the year at both the Derby & District and Leicestershire Law Society Awards – and was shortlisted for a further eight.
The winners of The Legal 500 awards will be announced within the next week. This will be followed by an exclusive dinner in London in February, where the winners will have the opportunity to meet with each other, network and celebrate their success.
