ALTRINCHAM’S MLP Law has scooped Team of the Year Award at the LawNet Awards.

The firm’s employment and HR team won the accolade at the prestigious LawNet annual conference and awards dinner, where over 200 delegates from across the industry celebrated at the Heythrop Park resort in Oxfordshire.

The judges praised the MLP team for its revenue growth, client calibre and retention, and superior levels of strategic support.

MLP managing partner Stephen Attree said: “We’re thrilled to win this award; it recognises a hugely successful 2017 and a great start to the new year.

"We’ve been delighted to welcome more highly skilled professionals joining to serve our new and existing clients all over the UK.”

MLP’s employment and HR team doubled in size last year and has increased its revenue by almost 300 per cent, while also being responsible for the firm’s charity initiatives.

The company is opening new offices in Cheshire and London, taking its branch total to five with further appointments expected for 2018.

Mr Attree said: “The firm is growing quickly but we are still proud to deliver a personal professional service to all our national and international clients. This award recognises that service, so it is a huge well done to the team.”

LawNet is the UK and Ireland’s leading network of independent law firms. The annual conference is the flagship event in the LawNet calendar each year, with speakers, debates, awards and networking for attendees.
