Hayes Connor shortlisted for two Modern Law Awards

Modern Law Awards 2019

We are delighted to announce that Hayes Connor Solicitors, (part of the Forster Dean Solicitors group of companies) has been shortlisted for two Modern Law Awards.

Now in their sixth year, the Eclipse Proclaim Modern Law Awards were launched to celebrate and identify sparkling talent and success in entrepreneurship, market development, business management and best practice in the modern legal services arena. The event organisers were overwhelmed with nominations this year, receiving more submissions than ever, so it is a significant achievement to be shortlisted.

Hayes Connor has been shortlisted in two categories in the 2019 awards: Boutique Law Firm of the Year and Marketing and Communication Strategy of the Year.

Commenting on the accomplishment, Kingsley Hayes, managing director at Hayes Connor said: “Through an almost entirely online approach,Hayes Connor Solicitors has fast become one of the most recognised names in the sector when it comes to helping clients to get the support they deserve following data protection breaches, cybercrime, and other online offences.

“Indeed, over the past 12 months, we have marketed, assessed and processed all our work to a successful conclusion; establishing ourselves as a major player in this developing and niche area of law.

 “As consumers, we all want a fast, efficient, no-nonsense service. And this is just as true when it comes to technically complex legal services. So this is precisely what we deliver to our clients; using new technologies as we strive to ensure continued innovation.

“We have also established our position as a thought-leader, using content to provide value to claimants. We have invested heavily in client education to demonstrate our expertise in this area. The ability to provide clear and concise information about our clients’ rights is key. The nature of the work undertaken is complex and sensitive; so consumers need to understand exactly what redress they can seek.

“While our core strategy is to inform and educate consumers on their rights, this also allows us to market our services across multiple online platforms. We are one of the very few established and well-known law firms that adopt this methodology.

“We are also working with Victim Support to help those affected by cybercrime and data breaches. The partnership sees us provide the charity with regular expertise and advice on its legal content. Together we also create resources that raise awareness of the growing threat of cybercrime and data breaches. We believe that this helps us to exceed the expectations of client care and professionalism, as ultimately, the more people are aware of the risk, the better protected everyone will be.

“Ultimately, we believe that our approach will ensure long-term business success for us, while supporting those we serve, and we are thrilled that we are being recognised for our achievements.”

The award ceremony, which showcases and sets the benchmarks for best practice in the ever diverse, challenging and exciting legal landscape takes place on Thursday 31st January in Manchester.
