Our Champagne-Fuelled, Award-Winning Night Out
The Negotiator Awards 2021 – Supplier of the Year : Professional Support
It’s not all that often that Northern solicitor types like us find ourselves out on the razzle in London (conveyancing is probably not as glamorous as you think). Last week we surprised ourselves by scrubbing up really quite nicely and taking ourselves to The Negotiator Awards 2021.
Do they still let people wearing party clothes leave Yorkshire?
They do, actually, and this wasn’t just any old night out. For those of you not in the know, The Negotiator is the leading magazine for the estate agent industry, https://thenegotiator.co.uk/ and Grosvenor House is really quite fancy. https://www.marriott.com/en-us/hotels/longh-jw-marriott-grosvenor-house-london/overview/
Before you start, no, we weren’t just there to make up the numbers. The category Supplier of the Year: Professional Support had a shortlist. And we were on it!
Clutching our invitation to attend the awards dinner, feeling very pleased with ourselves, we hit the M1.
Did you practice looking pleased for other people?
Yes, it’s a cliché. There are some photographs of us being looking really chuffed to bits just to be on the list. We were up against some very well-known legal names, it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park for us. As a relatively new company, this was a massive deal for us. Most people at awards ceremonies have a “no-really-we’re-happy-for-them” face, and we were no exception.
Did they sit you near the coat racks?
We seriously didn’t expect to, but we only went and ruddy won and so, we’d like to thank our colleagues, our clients, our families, our friends, our wine and snack suppliers, and our dogs. Definitely our dogs. The coat rack was elsewhere. Thank you.
It is totally thrilled to be recognised professionally in this way. We’ve been beavering away for the last five years trying to bring new ways of working to the conveyancing industry… and this award feels like a shining beacon of support for who we are and what we’re doing.
It’s official, Newport Land and Law are an award-winning law firm! But don’t worry, we won’t let it go to our heads. Well, not much, anyway.
