Double legal awards success for Browne Jacobson

29 March 2012

Browne Jacobson scooped two awards at the Nottinghamshire Law Society Awards 2012.

Mark Blois, Head of the firms Education Team, won Solicitor of the Year whilst Michael Sadler picked up the Young Solicitor of the Year accolade. Mark Blois was recognised for his outstanding contribution over the past year.

Mark is recognised as a leading authority on education law and one of the top three education lawyers in the country. His team is regarded by the Department for Education as one of the leading advisers on the Governments academies schools programme, having advised on one in 10 of all academy conversions nationwide.

Michael Sadler is a member of the firms Construction and Property Risk Team. He was recognised for his role as a trusted adviser to a broad range of public and private sector clients including property developers, business owners, insurers and schools in addition to his commitment to client care, innovation and mentoring.

The firms success in Nottingham came less than 24 hours after the firm won Law Firm of the Year at the Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards 2012.

Alan Radford, Honorary Secretary of Nottinghamshire Law Society, commented:

"The standard of submissions was, as in previous years, of the highest quality.

"Under Marks stewardship Browne Jacobsons education team has been at the cutting edge of education reform with the schools academies programme. His award is also recognition for his dedication and commitment to the sector over many years.

"Michael started at Browne Jacobson as a trainee and the firm has seen him grow and mature into a highly respected lawyer who has made tremendous strides over the past year, culminating in his promotion to associate this year.

"Both Mark and Michaels awards are richly deserved."
