Cheadle Hulme based Abney Garsden McDonald solicitors have been selected as finalists in this year’s Claims Innovation Awards.
The awards, hosted by Barker Brooks Media, are designed to celebrate how firms and individuals from across the legal services landscape constantly find new ways of raising standards and growing business during what continue to be challenging times.
Abney Garsden McDonald has been nominated in the Legal Services Team of the Year category, which identifies firms who have shown an innovative approach, effective use of technology and demonstrated the ability to provide access to justice.
Peter Garsden, sole principal of Abney Garsden McDonald, has devoted the last 18 years of his professional life to supporting the victims of child abuse and has been Lead Solicitor in over 25 different Group Actions involving over 1000 Claimants.
Commenting on the nomination, Peter said: “On behalf of our dedicated child abuse team which has been in existence for 18 years, I am delighted to have been nominated for an award in the category of ‘Legal Services Team of the Year.’ After many hours of hard work it is most flattering to be recognised for a type of work which benefits some of the most vulnerable, poverty stricken and needy members of our society.”
The firm won Most Innovative use of Legal Software in the 2010 Innovation Awards and more recently in 2011, won Small Firm of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards.
The winners will be announced at a gala dinner to be held on the 9th May at the Hilton Manchester, Deansgate.
