Annual Awards & Ball 2015 – The Review

The Annual Awards & Ball 2015, in association with Property Search Group (PSG) proved to be an exceptional evening. The event was a sell out with over 500 guests in attendance, some travelling from as far as Bristol and Nottingham to join in what is fast becoming the biggest social event in the legal calendar.

The event was sponsored by PSG (Lead Sponsors & sponsors of the Commercial/Civil Lawyer of the Year Award), Neumans LLP (sponsors of the Rising Star Award) and Noble Solicitors (sponsors of the Criminal Lawyer of the Year Award).

The 2015 Award winners were:

1. Camilla Choudhury-Khawaja – Rising Star Award

2. Sujata Sharma – Commercial/Civil Lawyer of the Year Award

3. Kiran Mehta – Criminal Lawyer of the Year Award

4. Kim Hollis QC – Lifetime Achievement Award

We were very honoured and grateful to have Robert Bourns, Vice-President of the Law Society as our guest speaker.

Guests were treated to a lavish 3 course Indian meal courtesy of Madhu’s, an open and unlimited bar and there was no shortage of entertainment – with SUB FX Roadshow, Lions of Punjab dancers, PBN and Ministry of Dhol all performing on the night to a thrilled audience. Guests were dancing right to the very end!

Guests thoroughly enjoyed the night and here is what a few of them had to say:

“Thank you for a most enjoyable evening. Until next year!” 

“Fabulous evening! Well done!” 

“Amazing food, wonderful entertainment…a brilliant night!”
