Law Society Excellence Awards

WINNERS: “Excellence in Business Development”

Paradigm Family Law is delighted to announce that they were the Winners of the ‘Excellence in Business Development‘ category at last night’s Law Society Excellence Awards.

Held at the prestigious Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London and hosted by BBC RADIO 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain it was a fantastic gala celebration of the legal industry.

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.

’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,’ said Society president Joe Egan.


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 were looking for examples of business development initiatives that challenge convention and create greater added value.

Paradigm Family Law Managing Partner, James Thornton says of their success in winning the award,

“We are delighted to have been recognised as innovators in our field. Winning this Award recognises that by delivering top quality legal advice and experience but on a fixed fee basis, we have something unique in the family law sector.

The Judges highlighted our unique fixed fee model that provides transparency on fees for 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.”

The Awards success follows hot on the heels of Paradigm Family Law being recognised as a leading Family Law Firm by the Legal 500 and for each of James Thornton and Frank Arndt being named as ‘leading individuals’ in the Legal 500 for Family Law in West and North Yorkshire.

It marks the end of an exciting month for Paradigm Family Law and a celebration of the third anniversary of the practice.
