BCllp is NFU’s National Legal Panel of the Year
Since its formation in 2008 we have been one of sixteen law firms on the NFU’s National Legal Panel, covering Cheshire and Derbyshire.
Two years ago NFU introduced an annual National Legal Panel Firm of the Year award, given to the panel firm which is considered to have most excelled during the year.
Earlier this year the award was re-designated the Tim Sell Excellence Award, following the untimely death of the late NFU Legal Board Vice Chairman.
At the National Legal Panel Firms annual meeting in November 2019 the award was presented to Director Lesley Smith on behalf of this firm.
Managing Director Philp Cuerden commented: “We have always valued very highly our NFU legal panel membership, reflecting as it does the firm’s commitment to the agricultural and horticultural sectors and the close ties we have always had with a large number of such clients. Particularly given our position as the smallest firm on the national legal panel we are absolutely delighted and honoured to have received this award, representing as it does a clear recognition of the huge degree of commitment and dedication on the part of the firm’s directors and staff”.
