Industry Recognition For Niche Lawyers
A Wirral- based niche personal injury defence firm, has been shortlisted for a prestigious award by the body which promotes Liverpool’s maritime industry as a world class Centre of Excellence.
DGB Solicitors is up for the Mersey Maritime Industry Awards 2017 in the Maritime Professional Services category.
The Hoylake-based law firm was formed by Principal, Debbie Black in 2003 and specialises in the defence of personal injury claims, in particular marine related injury claims. DGB provide bespoke representation for a mix of insurance companies, P & I Clubs and businesses.
The firm has developed a highly competitive business which is fast becoming a market leader in innovative client care and specialist advice. The team, led by Debbie Black, has created a strong market presence and are delighted to have been nominated in such an important business category.
Debbie said “When I took a step off the ladder of a large corporate firm in 2003, my business vision was to provide a high calibre, competitively priced, flexible legal service to clients. This inevitably involved considering the way in which legal services are delivered, embracing a number of business technologies.”
“We are highly collaborative, innovative and outward-looking; committed to sharing good practice and ideas. We are keen to promote the North West as the “go to” destination for expertise in maritime professional services and to work with others to establish this.
Mersey Maritime’s Chief Executive, Chris Shirling-Rooke, has stated that “…the number and quality of entries for the 2017 Mersey Maritime Industry Awards has risen for the third consecutive year, which will make for an exciting awards evening”.
Responding to this Debbie continued: “This makes it all the more thrilling to be shortlisted alongside other highly prestigious firms. It’s terrific recognition for the team and all their hard work. Small and medium sized businesses are absolutely crucial to the economy in the current climate and this type of award provides that extra incentive to those at the sharp end who are working away. It also helps to put the North West firmly on the map as the innovative and thriving business destination we all know it to be.”
The winner will be announced by BBC presenter Louise Minchin at a black tie Awards Dinner on 9th March 2017 at Liverpool Football Club.
