Birketts was crowned “Commercial Property Team of the Year” and rewarded for “Excellence in Client Service” for the second year running at this year’s Cambridgeshire and District Law Society (CDLS) awards. In light of the recent challenging circumstances, the award was presented virtually on Thursday 18 June via Zoom.
The CDLS awards are designed to recognise and celebrate the hard work and achievements of individuals and teams across the legal community. The awards also highlight the breadth of expertise and inspirational accomplishments across a number of sectors.
The continued commitment of Birketts’ Commercial Property Team to high quality service delivery and outstanding client care saw the firm stand out against its competitors to secure a second consecutive win in this category. With an impressive blend of teamwork, technical knowledge and high quality legal advice, the team remain one of the best regarded property teams in the country, boasting a number of specialists.
Katherine Herbert, Partner and Head of Commercial Property at Birketts’ Cambridge office, said: “We are truly honoured to receive these awards for the second year in a row. The CDLS Legal Excellence Awards recognise the best teams and law firms and individuals practising in Cambridgeshire and to receive these awards is a recognition of the depth and range of expertise offered by our experts as well as an acknowledgement of our efforts to maintain the high standards the firm has become known for. For the team to be recognised for its unrivalled expertise in strategic land and its acumen across a diverse range of commercial property transactions is hugely rewarding.”
Jonathan Agar, Chief Executive at Birketts, added: “Birketts remains dedicated to delivering the best results for clients no matter how complex or difficult the project and to receive these awards for the second year running, is a true credit to the firm’s collective hard work. To be presented with awards which recognise the firm’s forward-thinking approach to client care and technical excellence, in the context of a particularly tough marketplace and a global pandemic with widespread consequences is a great credit not only to the Commercial Property Team but to everyone at the firm.”
