The head of Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office has revealed his delight after one of the firm’s solicitor apprentices was nominated for a prestigious local award.
Ben Tasker, who works in the Property Litigation team, has been shortlisted in the Young Apprentice of the Year category at the inaugural Insider Yorkshire Young Professionals Awards.
The event celebrates the region’s young business talent, specifically recognising professionals aged 35 or under. The winners will be announced at a ceremony held at the city’s New Dock Hall on 2 February.
News of the nomination comes just weeks after Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office won the Litigation and Dispute Resolution prize at the Yorkshire Legal Awards. The firm was described by judges as “a stand-out performer”.
James Teagle, Partner in Property Litigation at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are delighted that Ben has been recognised with this shortlisting.
“His work on several big trials this year has been truly exemplary. He is an asset to the team, the department and firm, and he should be as proud of all his achievements this past year as we are.”
James Atkins, Partner and Leeds Office Head at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are undoubtedly proud of the skills and expertise that we possess across every level of the firm. Each member of our team has a role to play as we look to provide the best possible support to clients in a range of markets.
“The entire office wishes Ben the best of luck for the upcoming awards ceremony.”
