LAW firms in Kirklees are being invited to enter this year’s Yorkshire Lawyer Awards.

And competition for the prizes is expected to be fierce following the success of last year’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

This year, the awards will be presented at a ceremony and dinner on October 5 at the Queens Hotel in Leeds.

Eighteen categories up for grabs include ones for niche law firms, rising stars in the profession, corporate and commercial lawyers, barristers and managing partners.

To make a nomination, go to and for further information call Jo Gatie on 01423 851157. The deadline for entries is July 8, 2011.
