Continued growth of Hudgell Solicitors recognised with shortlisting at Yorkshire Legal Awards in Law Firm of Year category

YLA_Shortlisted


Hudgell Solicitors’ continued growth and success has brought more industry recognition as the firm has been shortlisted for the forthcoming Yorkshire Legal Awards.

Organised and staged by the publishers of Leeds & Yorkshire Lawyer magazine, the awards were established in 2000 to recognise and celebrate significant achievements by leading firms and individuals across the county.

Judges have confirmed Hudgell Solicitors shortlisting in the Law Firm of the Year category for legal practices with between one and 10 partners, with the winners to be announced at a ceremony at New Dock Hall in Leeds, on October 12.

When selecting finalists in the category, judges sought out firms demonstrating client appreciation and recognition, initiatives setting them apart from their competition, and a dedication to the development and welfare of staff.

This shortlisting follows Hudgell Solicitors being named as a finalist at the forthcoming Rehabilitation First Awards, in which a long-term package of rehabilitation support for the victim of a serious road traffic accident has won recognition.

Awards recognise excellent client care provided by Hudgell Solicitors

Managing director Neil Hudgell, who established the firm in 1997 and will celebrate 20 years in business next month, said: “It is fantastic to see our firm repeatedly being selected by judges in major awards events such as this and the Rehabilitation First Awards.

“To be shortlisted in awards events such as these you have to be able to demonstrate that you are a firm dedicated to excellent client service and value. That has always been the focus of the firm since the first day, and that remains the priority today.

“As a business we have to be prepared to adapt and develop to continue improving our service and look after our clients. Being shortlisted for awards such as this demonstrates that we are doing just that.”

Mr Hudgell has overseen continued growth over the past 20 years from starting out as a one-man operation to now being recognised as a top 150 UK law firm successfully representing thousands of clients and helping many on the road to recovery after serious, life-changing injuries.

Firm has taken steps in 2017 to embrace chances within compensation claims industry

The Yorkshire Legal Awards shortlisting comes as Hudgell Solicitors has taken pro-active steps in 2017 to ‘future-proof’ itself given continued squeezes on the personal injury and medical negligence market.

It saw Mr Hudgell bring together his senior management team earlier this year to consider the long-term goals for his business, to ensure it is a ‘beneficiary and not a victim’ of changes to the legal process.

A new company strategy saw staff urged to embrace changes within the business, with new initiatives launched including incentives for staff to climb the career ladder and to enable trainee lawyers to see a clear path towards qualification and supervisory roles.

Experienced solicitors were also added to the firm’s London operation, established three years ago and now working on many high-value cases of catastrophic injury.

Civil liberties representation has been one of the firm’s fastest-growing work areas over the past 12 months and now handles a significant number of active cases at any one time, including supporting clients wrongly accused of serious crimes including battery, murder, kidnapping, child neglect and firearms and drugs related crimes.

Throughout all of this, Hudgell Solicitors has continued to support the community and good causes, and go the extra mile for clients.

Significant sponsorships have been provided to amateur sports clubs, and to boxer Tommy Coyle to enable him to continue providing free gym memberships for young people across the city of Hull.

The firm is in the second year of a three year sponsorship of the Humber Bridge Half Marathon, an event which helps raise thousands of pounds for charities and good causes, whilst for the third year it supported the Hull Disability Sports Awards, recognising and inspiring those who compete in sports despite injury and disability.

It also continues to support the Paul For Brain Recovery charity and centre, providing vital community-based help, advice and guidance for people who are recovering from serious brain injuries.
