Geldards Family Team, based in the Midlands, have been shortlisted for this year’s East Midlands Chamber Enterprising Women Team of the Year Award.
The Award, sponsored by Leicester Tigers, is for a female led team achieving success through the leadership and management of the dynamic female. Working together, towards a common goal, demonstrating achievement in meeting challenging objectives and exceeding expectations.
The team is led by Partner Fiona Apthorpe, who heads up the team in the Midlands and is supported by Partner Gaynor Dickens, in Cardiff and Claire Dean, in the Midlands. Claire was promoted to Partner in 2018 after working at the firm for four years. The team has grown from a team of two when it started up in 2014 to 11 in 2019.
The team advise hundreds of families on successful solutions and merits recognition and has delivered significant financial growth, as well developing their service way beyond the traditional lawyer / client relationship, by helping and supporting clients through some of the most traumatic and emotionally challenging times in their lives with compassion and understanding.
The team won the Team of the Year Award in 2017, and hope to do the same again this year.
Partner and Head of the Family Team, Fiona Apthorpe, said:
“We are delighted to once again be shortlisted for the Team of the Year Award. It’s a fantastic acknowledgement of the work we do here in the Family Team.
“We are looking forward to the awards evening as the standard of entries is very high this year and it is great for my teams’ efforts to have been recognised and the successes celebrated against those of others in the local area.”
The winner will be announced at the Enterprising Women Gala Dinner at Derbyshire County Cricket Club on the 8th March. For details, click here.
