The Annual Awards & Ball 2016 – The Review

The Annual Awards & Ball 2016, in association with Alacrity Accountancy 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 Birmingham to join in what is fast becoming the biggest social event in the legal calendar.

The event was sponsored by Alacrity Accountancy (Lead Sponsors), CPS (sponsors of the Rising Star Award) and Noble Solicitors (sponsors of the Criminal Lawyer of the Year Award).

The 2016 Award winners were:

1. Dee Kundi – Rising Star Award

2. Vinesh Mandalia – Commercial/Civil Lawyer 2016

3. Naeem Mian – Criminal Lawyer 2016

4. Jaswinder Kalsi – Lifetime Achievement Award

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 award-winning comedian, Paul Chowdhry who had everyone in stitches, SUB FX DJs 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!”

“Hilarious…a brilliant night!”

“Fabulous evening! Well done!”
