North East Law Firm Wins National Award…Posted: 23rd October 2017

A LEADING COUNTY DURHAM law firm is celebrating today (20 October) after being the only practice in the region to scoop a prestigious national award.

EMG Solicitors, based at Abbeywoods Business Park, Durham, took first place honours at the Law Society’s Excellence Awards for its Excellence in Conveyancing Practice.

The company beat stiff opposition from across the UK to be announced a winner, in what is widely regarded as the most esteemed awards of its kind in the country.

This is the latest in a long line of successes for EMG, with members of its team also recently singled out in the Legal 500.

Managing Director, Emma Gaudern, said she was exceptionally proud of her team.

“This is recognition of the service and the value our solicitors give,” she said.

“It’s a huge honour but also confirms the high quality and dedication that we give to our clients.

“Our clients come back to us time and time again because of the level of service we offer and this award confirms that we are absolutely right in our approach.”

Richard Swinbank, who heads up conveyancing at EMG is also delighted at the win.

“Since joining EMG Solicitors 18 months ago I have watched the company go from strength to strength,” he said.

“And it’s amazing to have played a part in us winning this award which singles us out against so much strong competition not just from the North East but from around the country.”

The winners of the awards were across 12 categories, chosen from hundreds of firms from around the UK.

Law Society President, Joe Egan, said that this year “we received a record number of nominations for the awards, highlighting the extraordinary commitment of solicitors to serving their clients.”

“Solicitors from every corner of the land were represented, which shows the breadth of quality throughout the profession.”

EMG Solicitors was formed in 2014 by Emma Gaudern and now operates across a range of sectors including Court of Protection, wills, trusts and probate, family law and residential conveyancing.
