The Birmingham office of national law firm Bevan Brittan is celebrating after a Solicitor Apprentice secured a prestigious prize at an awards ceremony organised by the city’s Law Society.
Clinical negligence specialist Renée Tombs was named Apprentice of the Year at the Birmingham Law Society 2023 Legal Awards, which was held at the ICC last night (9 March). She was one of three Bevan Brittan colleagues shortlisted at the awards, as Nikita Pierpoint was nominated for Trainee Solicitor of the Year and Elena Goodfellow was featured in the BLS Pro Bono Award category.
Renée’s win also means it is the second consecutive year that a Bevan Brittan team member has won the Apprentice of the Year award.
Following the win, Rebecca Pendlebury, Partner and Birmingham Office Head at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are delighted that Renée’s skills and expertise have been recognised at the Birmingham Law Society 2023 Legal Awards. She is a real asset to the office and the firm as a whole, so this award is well deserved.
“Her success spotlights the next generation of talent at Bevan Brittan. We are incredibly proud that our colleagues have won this prize two years in a row and we remain committed to creating the best opportunities for those at the start of their careers.
“A huge well done must also go to Nikita and Elena, as their nominations are fantastic recognition for their incredible work too.”
