Latimer Hinks’ private client team has been named the best in the North at the prestigious Northern Law Awards 2016.

The County Durham-based firm beat off stiff competition to take home the Private Client Team of the Year trophy which was a new category for 2016.

Now in its second year, the Northern Law Awards celebrates the success and achievements of the Northern legal community.

Latimer Hinks CEO Anne Elliott said: "We’re absolutely thrilled to have been named the best Private Client Team in the north. It is testament to the decades spent building the team here and it is recognition of our private client work ethos.

"Many of our clients have been with us for generations. We know them and their families well, and our culture here has always been to build close and lasting relationships with our clients so we can help them through life’s milestones.”

With more than 90 nominations received from firms and organisations across the North, award judges said they faced an extremely difficult task to narrow down the field during a full day of judging.

Finalists were judged before the awards ceremony with the winners being announced during a special event at the Crowne Plaza Newcastle.

Geoff Harrison, chair of judges, said: "Judging is very demanding but the whole experience is a joy. We should all be very proud to be part of a regional legal community which produces such a depth and range of excellence.”

Latimer Hinks’ 15-strong Private Client Team deals with a host of issues including wills, trusts and inheritance tax planning, probate, retirement planning, elderly care, buying and selling property, powers of attorney and Court of Protection Work.
