Gaby Hardwicke Solicitors has been shortlisted for the ‘Excellence in Learning and Development’ award in the Law Society’s 2018 Excellence Awards.
A key aspect of our learning and development programme is our ‘Lunch & Learn’ initiative, which gives team members the chance to learn from one another through informal peer or partner-led presentations over a sandwich lunch. Managing Partner David Getty explained: “The concept was borrowed from the medical profession’s long-established sharing of experience and best practice through case reviews. We could see the value placed by our less experienced colleagues on hearing about the practical experiences of others in the firm, making complex topics more relevant and less theoretical. Lunch & Learn has been a great success in terms of participation and we’re delighted that it’s been recognised by our national body.”
The award shortlist comprises nine law firms from across the country and the winner will be announced in October.
Law Society President Christina Blacklaws said: “There are more than 9,000 firms and 140,000 solicitors in England and Wales and to be shortlisted for an Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the best of the best.”
