Excellence Awards

“Excellence in Business Development”

Paradigm Family Law is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted in this year’s Law Society Excellence Awards in the ‘Excellence in Business Development‘ category.

The Awards will be held on 19 October at the prestigious Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London. The event will be hosted by BBC RADIO 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain and promises to be a glittering gala celebration of the legal industry.

Excellence Awards

The names of the brightest and best from the solicitor profession were today unveiled by the Law Society in its 11th annual Excellence Awards. The awards recognise the commitment, enthusiasm and passion that solicitors dedicate to serving their clients, and – in the process – underpin our world-renowned legal system.

“To be shortlisted for the Excellence Awards is an achievement to be proud of,” said Society president Joe Egan. “The awards showcase the first rate work and dedication of the profession to their clients and the wider community, and the event is one of the most rewarding and memorable days in the legal calendar.”


The business environment and client expectations are constantly evolving. Law firms are finding new and innovative ways to secure new business and deliver legal services. The Law Society judges are looking for examples of business development initiatives that challenge convention and create greater added value.

Paradigm Family Law Managing Partner, James Thornton says of the nomination, “We like to think we fit that brief, and our shortlisting suggests that the Judges do too.

We believe that by focusing on delivering top quality legal advice and experience but on a fixed fee basis, we have something unique in the family law sector.

Having developed our fixed fee model to bring legal services to clients in need of our experience and expertise without compromising on quality of service or advice.

Our clients are not afraid to pick up the phone to ask us for help when they need it most for fear of it costing them more money.”

The Judges

Finalists are selected by a panel of experts from within and beyond the profession, and demonstrate the expertise and values shared by solicitors working across England and Wales, from small local practices and in-house teams, to international City firms.

So, watch this space! We’ll certainly be keeping everything crossed for what is sure to be an amazing night whatever the result.
