Olliers shortlisted for Manchester Legal Awards 2024

Written 22nd April 2024 by Olliers Solicitors

We are delighted to announce Olliers has been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s Manchester Legal Awards. The firm has been shortlisted for ‘Crime Team of the Year,’ and our very own Martha Odysseos has been shortlisted for ‘Trainee Solicitor of the Year’. 

Run by Manchester Law Society, the awards are an annual celebration of Manchester’s legal talent. Finalists are determined by a panel of well-respected individuals from the business, legal and academic community across the North West.

Judging will take place on the 10th of May, with the winners announced at a glitzy ceremony at The Midland Hotel on 6th June 2024.

Crime Team of the Year shortlisting

Olliers have won the ‘Crime Team of the Year’ Award on six occasions during recent years, most recently in 2023.

Ruth Peters, Olliers’ Business Development Director, commented:

“We’re absolutely delighted to be shortlisted again for 2024. The Awards are always a fabulous event and we can’t wait for the evening. Good luck to everyone shortlisted and congratulations to our colleague Martha Odysseos on her well-deserved shortlisting.”

Martha Odysseos

We are thrilled to congratulate Martha on her shortlisting. Whilst Martha qualified as a solicitor earlier this year, the qualifying period for the awards was January 2023 to December 2023, during which she was a trainee solicitor.

Martha joined Olliers in 2021 before commencing her training contract in 2022. Martha qualified as a solicitor in February 2024. Martha represents clients at every stage of the criminal investigation process, from the pre-charge investigative stage, providing advice at the police station and, where necessary, through proceedings – up to and including trial.

Martha commented:

 “I’m so pleased to have been nominated for an award at the Manchester Legal Awards and wish all those shortlisted good luck!”

Previous Manchester Legal Awards

In 2023, Olliers won ‘Crime Team of the Year’ at the Awards, as well as ‘Small Law Firm of the Year’ in 2022. The firm had previously won four awards in 2021. These included ‘Crime Team of the Year,’ ‘Small Law Firm of the Year’,’ as well as that of ‘Partner of the Year’ awarded to our Managing Director, Matthew Claughton, and ‘Solicitor of the Year’ to fellow Director, Ruth Peters.

We can’t wait for the awards and congratulate all those shortlisted.
