Hay & Kilner picks up coveted Crime Team trophy at Northern Law Awards

10 Jun 2019

Our specialist Crime Team has been officially named as the best in the business.

We were chosen as the winner of the Crime category in the 2019 Northern Law Awards, the fourth time our team has received this high recognition.

The award was presented at a gala dinner at the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton Hotel, where individuals and teams from Hay & Kilner were recognised in 11 separate awards categories this year.

Designed to celebrate the success of all those practising and working in the legal industry in the North of England, the Northern Law Awards are decided by a hugely experienced panel of judges.

Hay & Kilner’s Crime Team was chosen by The Northern Law Awards because: “Their expanding team of dedicated advocates demonstrated exceptional client retention and growth, placing client care at the forefront of the service they provide. The Team excel in all aspects of Criminal Litigation, uniquely providing expertise and representation from Police Station to the Court of Appeal and beyond. The Team also specialise in many forms of Regulatory work and, where appropriate, provide services to litigants on a pro bono basis.”

Mark Harrison, Partner & Head of the Crime Team at Hay & Kilner, said: “As a team, we’re extremely honoured to have received this recognition, once again.

“We strive to improve our high standards every year and we’re proud to see that effort for our clients recognised with this award.”
