Teesside Law Firm Wins Three Northern Law Awards

Redcar-based law firm, Cygnet Law, has been awarded Team of the Year in the Family Law category for the second year running at the prestigious Northern Law Awards.

The Northern Law Awards champion the many talented individuals working in the legal sector across the region, highlighting extraordinary achievements and successes.

The firm, that was nominated in a total of seven categories, was presented with the accolade at a ceremony which took place at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead.

Cygnet’s director of finance and practice management, Lisa Smith, also triumphed on the evening, taking home the Law Practice Management award.

Lisa has been with Cygnet since it first established in 2001 and holds over 30 years of experience in family law. She was commended for her wealth of knowledge, commitment to Cygnet’s success, and unwavering management style.

In a third win for Cygnet, the much-coveted Trainee of the Year title was awarded to Amber Lockett, who began her training contract with Cygnet in October ‘21 and has recently qualified as a solicitor.

Amber’s excellent client manner, strong initiative, and increasing advocacy skills didn’t fail to impress the panel of judges.

Stacey Phoenix, director and solicitor at Cygnet Law, said: “We are thrilled to see our talented Family Law department recognised again on a regional stage. The award is a testament to the dedication, passion, and commitment that they show to our clients every day.

“The personal awards further highlight the incredible talent that we have within the practice. Lisa is undoubtedly a driving force behind Cygnet’s success, and Amber’s dedication and skill set are second to none – both are a credit to the firm.”
