Shoosmiths is celebrating after winning the 'Professional Practice' award at the annual Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards (MKBAA).
More than 600 guests were in attendance for the ceremony hosted by Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership and InterDirect, a full service marketing agency, at Stadiummk's Hilton DoubleTree hotel. Revered BBC journalist and foreign correspondent, Kate Adie, presented the awards.
Professional services firms play a significant part in Milton Keynes' success on a local, regional, national and on an increasingly global level, and the Professional Practice award, sponsored by accountancy firm Keens Shay Keens, is given to an organisation that have brought innovation, market leading vision and the highest of standards to their area of expertise.
Shoosmiths had to demonstrate how the firm has positively contributed to Milton Keynes and the surrounding area and how business management, customer service and forward strategy will secure future success.
Shoosmiths partner and head of office in Milton Keynes, Steve Wiltshire, said: 'It is an honour for Shoosmiths to have been recognised at the MK Business Achievement Awards.
'Clients tell us in their feedback that we go 'the extra mile' in terms of client service and commerciality. The firm is growing and going from strength to strength, not only in the region, but nationally.
'We also care a great deal about the areas in which we operate, which is why you will see Shoosmiths employees taking part in many corporate responsibility activities which serve local communities, and regional and national causes.
'We have a lot to be proud of at Shoosmiths, and it is great to receive this kind of recognition from the business community in Milton Keynes.'
Chairman of Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership, Dr Philip Smith, said of the winners at the MKBAA: 'By being innovative, dynamic, and open to new ways of doing things, businesses in Milton Keynes achieve great things every single day, and we recognise them for what they are - truly inspiring!'
