Palmers supports ICAEW award

News Article

Essex-based law firm Palmers has proudly sponsored the Business Person of the Year category at the recent ICAEW South Essex awards.

The firm, which itself has won numerous awards – including the Excellent Customer Service category at this year’s Thurrock Business Awards and the Business 2 Business (Large Firm) category at the 2013 Basildon Business Awards – was represented by Chief Operating Officer Nick Dougan and members of the Palmers Company Commercial Department being Partners BJ Chong, Associate Solicitor Lara Murray, Solicitors Karl Barnes and Joe Martin and Trainee Solicitor Matt Johnson.

Sponsoring the Business Person of the Year Award meant that judge Nick Dougan was on the lookout for the head of an Essex-based firm that had been trading for more than five years and had thrived despite an adverse economic situation. There were several excellent candidates which made the decision so much more difficult.

The winner, James Sinclair of The Partyman Company – a childrens’ entertainment, party and event planner – was named on the evening and noted for his impressive innovative thinking, leadership and tenacity. The Partners of Palmers wish James the very best of luck in continuing the exciting growth of his business.
