Run by The Lawyer magazine, the awards are one of the most prestigious among the legal sector, recognising best practice and excellence across the board. The awards ceremony is taking place on the Tuesday 27 June at Grosvenor House, London.

The award nominations come as the latest in a string of industry recognition of Shoosmiths' legal expertise. Earlier this year Shoosmiths was named Law Firm of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards and in the same month also awarded Legal Provider of the Year at the Motor Finance Awards for the third year running. Shoosmiths also topped the Experian MarketIQ (Corpfin) 2016 UK & Ireland M&A league tables to become the UK's leading legal adviser by deal volume.

Shoosmiths has also seen success in record legal directories results, achieving numerous top tier rankings in many areas as well as a clean sweep of tier 1 rankings nationally for its Recoveries Services Group in the latest Legal 500.

Shoosmiths chief executive, Claire Rowe, commented: 'Being shortlisted in these two key categories in The Lawyer Awards recognises the tremendous hard work our teams have put in over the last year. It also boldly reflects our ambition to be the leading national law firm famous for its client experience.'

Last year saw Shoosmiths open offices in Leeds and Belfast, extending the firms national footprint and allowing clients across the country to further benefit from Shoosmiths' wide range of legal services.
