We are very pleased to announce that Lyons Davidson’s Private Client department was awarded the ‘Private Client Team of the Year’ Solicitors Journal Award, at a ceremony held in London on 25 May.

The team were up against stiff competition in the category, and impressed judges Binyamin Ali (editor of Private Client Adviser magazine) and Robert Currie (Head of Private Banking UK at Nedbank Private Wealth) with product innovation, which includes simple online wills and trust documents, and  innovative client strategies. The judges said they were “overwhelmed by the positive feedback” they had received about the Lyons Davidson team.

The Solicitors Journal held its inaugural awards ceremony at the Connaught Rooms in London’s Covent Garden on Wednesday. The event was hosted by journalist Andrew Marr.

Department head Tamara Hasson said: “The whole team are absolutely over the moon about winning this award. We are incredibly proud of the work we do. We place a huge emphasis on delivering excellent client service in a way which clients want. That means offering a choice of how we deliver our legal advice: whether it’s in person, electronically or through a remote system – whatever suits that client. We are also extremely keen to keep prices clear, so that clients know exactly what service they are paying for and there are no nasty surprises. Our clients do appreciate this approach and it was an enormous boost to the team to receive such warm client endorsements, which were instrumental in our winning. It is phenomenally exciting to have that hard work recognised by such a well-respected and high profile publication as Solicitors Journal.”
