Modern Law Private Client Awards shortlisting for Stephens Scown

Leading South West law firm, Stephens Scown has been shortlisted in the Modern Law Private Client Awards 2024.

The national awards, which celebrate excellence and innovation within the private client sector, is a further acknowledgement of Stephens Scown’s high standing within the industry and on the national stage.

The award comes in the category of Law Firm of the Year, marking Stephens Scown as a leader in the field and in one of the most competitive categories.

Stephens Scown has been employee-owned since 2016 and has recently celebrated its one-year anniversary as a B Corp Certified organisation. It has also been named as one of the UK’s Best Places to Work according to a recent Sunday Times employee engagement survey.

Managing Partner Richard Baker, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement to make it onto the shortlist for the Modern Law Private Client Awards 2024. To be nominated for Law Firm of the Year in such a competitive field shines a light on the outstanding work being done to support clients through life’s challenges and celebrations, and how that work is seen nationally.”

Tom Biddick, who joined Stephens Scown in May 2023 and who has recently taken over the role of leading the firm’s Private Client team, added: “It’s fantastic to see our work recognised on a national stage.

“Whether we are helping clients to secure their wealth for future generations or supporting couples and families through what can feel like very overwhelming life events, we are committed to going above and beyond for our clients, our colleagues and our communities and I think that shines through with this award nomination.

“It’s a reflection of the work being done across the organisation and the impact on clients who can take advantage of the full spectrum of work on offer throughout the firm and the wealth of experience and expertise of its people.

“Being employee-owned and B Corp Certified demonstrates the way in which employees are all in it together, with each invested in providing the best possible service to clients.

“Recognising the strength of the firm’s offer to clients, the judging team said that reaching the shortlist was, “a fantastic achievement as we have been overwhelmed once again by the volume of nominations this year.”

Taking place in Liverpool on July 4, the ceremony promises to be a gala night celebrating the best of the legal profession, and one in which Stephens Scown is hoping to play a starring role.
