Legal Awards introduction Introduction Introduction We at SME News are delighted to host the Legal Awards 2022! Since its 2019 inception, the Legal Awards aim to continue to highlight and reward the firms and individuals who have showed true excellence, commitment and determination more than ever over the past year across the UK. After a turbulent year, the UK Legal industry has changed and adapted rapidly and is now stronger with the advancement of use of technology to keep in touch with clients when we couldn’t leave our homes, to, according to figures released by the Office for National Statistics, a massive 30% increase in revenue compared to 2020. We at SME News recognise now to be the most crucial time to take part in our Legal Awards 2022 being the perfect way to show your employees their efforts are valued by the organisation, whilst also providing the public with evidence of your successes as a business. Notifying stakeholders of your participation in our programme indicates that your business is garnering the attention of third parties, and that word of your expertise and customer service are creating a buzz within this competitive sector.
