Expatriate Law Highly Commended at Prestigious Awards
Expatriate Law has been highly commended at the Law Society Awards – the most prestigious awards ceremony for solicitors in England and Wales.
Solicitors who champion some of the most vulnerable people in society and have made an invaluable contribution to worthwhile causes were recognised across 20 categories, at the event which took place on 8 October 2021 hosted by comedian Jo Caulfield.
Expatriate Law was announced as highly commended in the Excellence in International Legal Services category. The International Legal Services category recognised law firms with an innovative approach to the delivery of legal services with an international element, and how they embraced the opportunities globalisation offered the firm and clients.
Alexandra Tribe, Managing Partner at Expatriate Law, said:
Well done to our wonderful teams in London, Singapore, UAE and Australia – I am so proud of all of them. This is such a tremendous achievement, and such recognition of the hard work of each and every one of them.
The judges described Expatriate Law as:
A firm who have forged an excellent reputation in international family law. 100% of cases undertaken by Expatriate Law have an international element, and the firm has worked on cases fluidly between international offices, using video link conferencing and online servers to efficiently manage cases across borders.
Through their new branch offices in the UAE and Singapore, they have been able to forge close links with foreign law firms in those regions and with the British consulates in the Far and Middle East, providing staff training for consular staff.”
Stephen Boyce, President of the Law Society of England and Wales, said:
Congratulations to all the winners, commended and shortlisted in this year’s awards.
Solicitors help so many people – including the most vulnerable in society – in so many ways and it is a great pleasure to be able to recognise the efforts of our outstanding winners and highly commended entrants.
I would also like to pay tribute to the hard work, skill and dedication of their counterparts across England and Wales, who continue to champion the rule of law and to defend the right to justice for all despite the difficult circumstances so many of us have faced in the past year.
