The head of Bevan Brittan’s Birmingham office has revealed her delight after three members of the team were nominated for prestigious prizes at an upcoming regional awards ceremony.

Nikita Pierpoint has been shortlisted for Trainee Solicitor of the Year at the Birmingham Law Society 2023 Legal Awards, while Renée Tombs is featured in the Apprentice of the Year category. Associate Elena Goodfellow features on the shortlist for the BLS Pro Bono Award.

The 2023 Legal Awards recognise the region’s top legal talent with winners to be announced at a glittering ceremony at the ICC on 9 March.

Bevan Brittan has enjoyed success at the event in recent years, picking up the Law Firm of the Year (National) award in 2022. Samantha Ross and Amelia Bauer also won the Apprentice of the Year and Trainee Solicitor of the Year prizes respectively at last year’s ceremony.

Reacting to the latest nominations, Rebecca Pendlebury, Partner and Birmingham Office Head at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are incredibly proud that three of our colleagues have been shortlisted for these awards. The nominations highlight two areas that are hugely important to the firm – creating opportunities for the next generation of legal talent and providing advice and support in the communities where we are based.

“Nikita, Renee and Elena are a real credit to Bevan Brittan and the Birmingham office and we all wish them the best of luck for the upcoming awards ceremony.”

News of the Birmingham trio’s nominations emerged shortly after a Solicitor Apprentice in Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office also received awards recognition. Ben Tasker was Highly Commended in the Young Apprentice of the Year category at the Insider Yorkshire Young Professionals Awards, which took place in Leeds at the start of the month.

The firm has also been shortlisted in the Legal and Civic categories for the upcoming Bristol Life Awards 2023.
