The Leeds office of national law firm Bevan Brittan is celebrating after one of its Senior Associates won a major prize at The Legal 500 Northern Powerhouse Awards.
Real estate lawyer Charles Stent, who specialises in supporting healthcare clients, was named Rising Star of the Year in the Public Sector category at the event. Bevan Brittan was also shortlisted for Firm of the Year in the same category.
Held at The Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester last week, the Northern Powerhouse Awards celebrated the legal services industry in the North. Shortlists were based on The Legal 500’s research, while winners were selected by a judging team.
Lyndon Campbell, Partner and Leeds Office Head at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are delighted that Charles’s hard work and dedication have been recognised at the Northern Powerhouse Awards.
“His win is a testament to the specialist expertise he possesses, as well as his commitment to ensuring the best possible outcomes for his clients. He is a real asset to our Leeds office and a great example of the talent that we possess at every level across the firm.”
“The recognition for Charles and the wider team’s support for Local Government and the NHS in the North of England stands alongside the growth we are seeing across our Housing, Commercial Property, Corporate and Construction teams.”
Charles’s win is just the latest awards recognition achieved by Bevan Brittan’s Leeds office. Solicitor Apprentice Ben Tasker was Highly Commended in the Young Apprentice of the Year category at the Insider Yorkshire Young Professionals Awards last month.
The office also won the ‘Litigation and Dispute Resolution’ prize at the Yorkshire Legal Awards in October.
