Stockton-based Jacksons Law has been awarded a top award at this year’s Northern Law Awards.
Jacksons’ property team was shortlisted earlier this year in the Team of the Year, Property (Commercial) category.
The firm was the only law firm, with a base in the Tees Valley, to walk away with an award on the night.
The commercial property team were presented with Team of the Year Property award in 2017, making it the only law firm to have won the Property award twice, since the launch of the Northern Law Awards in 2015.
In 2018, the team was presented with an award for Property Law Firm of the Year, at the Insider North East Property Awards and was shortlisted once again, for the same award this year.
In addition, Jacksons was shortlisted in three other categories at the Northern Law Awards: Team of the Year Crime/Regulatory, Team of the Year Property (Residential) and Law Firm of the Year (6+ partners).
Erica Turner, partner and head of commercial property, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the award again, and to have been given recognition for all our hard work over the last 12 months.
“We have seen another strong financial year in the team which has enabled us to welcome a new partner and head of agriculture property and members of the team have been promoted following the positive contribution they have made to Jacksons.”
Senior partner Geoff Skeoch added: “It is very pleasing to see the team being recognised for its achievements following another great year of growth.
“I’m very excited to see what next year will bring to the team, and the firm, with the opportunities that are available in the region for businesses like ours.”
The Northern Law Awards celebrates the great wealth of legal talent and success in the North-East.
All shortlisted firms are invited to meet the judges, to discuss their nomination and the winners are announced at a glamorous award dinner at The Hilton Hotel, Newcastle, Gateshead. Judges include those from legal, banking, automotive and recruitment sectors in the region.
