Back To Back Law Awards for Harwood
The Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards delivered a back-to-back win for Geelong-based law firm Harwood Andrews, named the best Regional/Suburban Law Firm of the Year for 2017.
Lawyers Weekly features editor, Emma Ryan, said the competition throughout the legal profession is at an all-time high, as reflected in this year's award submissions.
“The finalists for the 2017 Australian Law Awards highlight those who are going above and beyond for their firm and their clients, from the profession’s most senior ranks to its rising stars," she said.
Harwood Andrews CEO Andrew Barnes credited the firm’s commitment to continuous innovation as a reason for the win.
“In 2016, we were recognised for our expansion into new areas or law, and new regional cities. This year our win is largely due to the implementation of digital products that give our clients a new way to connect with us."
In the past year, the firm has introduced online Wills and Powers of Attorney, instant conveyancing and Planning Agreement quotes, and an interactive client portal.
Harwood Andrews was recognised in front of almost 800 of the legal profession’s most talented people at The Star in Sydney.
