McBrides Chartered Accountants were delighted to sponsor the awards at the Kent Law Society annual dinner on Friday 12th May.
The award for the Junior Lawyer of the Year went to Melanie Christadoulou of Furley Page LLP, and the award for Outstanding Achievement was given to Blair Gulland of Gullands Solicitors.
Nick Paterno, managing partner and member of McBrides Legal Services Team, presented the awards. Nick Paterno said “McBrides have been involved in judging and sponsoring these awards since their inception in 2014 and the quality of those shortlisted for the awards this year was exceptional. The judges had an extremely difficult task in differentiating between candidates, but in the end there was unanimous agreement that Melanie and Blair thoroughly deserved to win. Our congratulations go to them both.”
Edward Lewis, President of the Kent Law Society said: “Friday night was a very successful evening. We were delighted that Nick Paterno was able to present the awards and thank McBrides for their continued support.”
The dinner was attended by George Jessel the High Sheriff of Kent as well as Her Honour Judge Adele Williams – a Deputy Lieutenant for Kent.
Awards were presented in front of representatives from other overseas law societies and 220 members of the Kent Law Society which serves solicitors, their staff and trainees and law students in the County of Kent.
