The firm is in the running for awards in the following categories:
- Excellence in Business
- Contribution to the Region
- Outstanding Employer of Choice
Principal Catherine Henry said the accolades are due to the hard work, expertise and enthusiasm of the firm’s talented team of lawyers, managers and support staff.
She said the firm has restructured to better serve clients now and into the future.
“Being an employer of choice – particularly the opportunities we offer to women – means we are attracting and retaining very talented lawyers who want to get excellent results for our clients,” she said.
“Businesses are an integral part of any community and, as a firm, we try to play our part in contributing to the social and economic fabric of the communities that we serve.”
“We advocate and use the law to gain justice and a better deal for people in regional NSW, particularly the vulnerable.”
The annual Hunter Business Awards are presented by Business Hunter (formerly the Hunter Business Chamber).
Ms Henry thanked Business Hunter for providing a platform for businesses to celebrate and share their achievements. She wished all finalists the best of luck.
Business Hunter CEO Bob Hawes said this year’s awards were the most contested yet in the 40 years they have been running. There are 72 finalists vying for awards across 14 categories, chosen from hundreds of entries.
The awards night is tentatively set for October 22, depending upon COVID-19 restrictions.
