The CILEx National Awards Ceremony was held at the Underglobe in London last night, showcasing and celebrating the excellent work, and achievements, of CILEx members and stakeholder partners. The awards were opened by CILEX’s Chief Executive Officer Linda Ford and hosted by the delightfully funny and charming actress and writer Sally Phillips.
The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives is recognised in England and Wales as one of the three core approved regulators of the legal profession alongside barristers and solicitors. The awards recognise individuals and teams providing exemplary service, advice and support to those seeking access to justice.
