Local Solicitor Ayesha Nayyar has been shortlisted for the Law Society’s prestigious Excellence Awards, the highest accolade for lawyers in England and Wales.
Ayesha Nayyar has been shortlisted in the Sole Practitioner of the Year category, while her Manchester-based Firm, Nayyars Solicitors, is also nominated in the Small Firm of the Year category.
“Stepping out and starting my own Firm was daunting and involved a lot of hard work and sleepless nights. It was a risk, but failure was never an option. It is no co-incidence that the Firm has seen year on year growth and has now established itself on a national level. I enjoy the challenges that running a business involves but I am equally as passionate about being a solicitor. I am incredibly proud of how far we have come and awards like this recognise that.”
Law Society president Christina Blacklaws said: “There are more than 9,000 firms and 140,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to be shortlisted for an Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the best of the best.
“All the firms and solicitors who are shortlisted should be congratulated for the work they do day-in day-out to support their clients, many of whom are navigating complex and challenging legal problems.
“At a time of immense pressure on the justice system, the incredible work being done by solicitors across the country should be applauded.”
Winners are announced at the Law Society’s Excellence Awards ceremony in London on 17 October.
