Local legal firm up for national award


Regional law firm Stephens Scown has been shortlisted in the national legal industry awards.

It is the only firm outside London to have been picked for the category of ‘Private Client/Family Team of the Year 2010’ at the British Legal Awards.

The firm, which has offices in Exeter, Truro and St Austell, is down to the final six and is up against five other legal practices, all based in the capital.

The winners of the British Legal Awards, supported by Legal Week, will be announced at a presentation dinner in London on December 2.
