Halebury co-founders win prestigious WeAreTheCity Rising Star Award in the category of Law
Halebury co-founders Janvi Patel and Denise Nurse have been named in WeAreTheCity’s Rising Star Awards for the category of Law.
The prestigious Rising Star awards, now in its third year, aim to showcase the sheer volume of female talent that exists across our industries and to create role models for the future.
Over 1,250 entries were judged by a panel of 33 independent judges including Baroness Goudie, Lara Morgan, serial entrepreneur and investor and Eleanor Mills, Editorial Director, Sunday Times. During the month of May, over 35,000 public votes from 110 countries were received for the 200 shortlisted nominees.
The top five winners for each category will be celebrated at a prestigious awards ceremony on 12 July at NewsUK’s headquarters in London.
Speaking on behalf of both herself and Halebury business partner Janvi Patel, Halebury CEO Denise Nurse commented:
“It’s ten years since we started Halebury with the aim of creating a law firm which served our clients, lawyers and the business itself in the best way, which stood shoulder to shoulder with the biggest and best brands in the industry and that created a truly alternative way to work as a lawyer and to get access to lawyers. There are so many more things we want to do, but to have reached this point has taken support of our amazing team of in-house lawyers, our operational team who work so hard behind the scenes, our clients, our friends, family and many other people who have championed us along the way. Thank you for believing in us and for the opportunities you have given us. We plan to continue to pay it forward.”
Vanessa Vallely, Managing Director of WeAreTheCity said:
“It has been a total honour to run this year’s awards and highlight the achievements of so many amazing women. We are exceptionally proud that year on year our Rising Star community continues to grow and most importantly that we continue to uncover and showcase emerging leaders and role models from across the UK. Not only do these awards shine a spotlight on the female talent pipeline, but they should also be seen as a call to action for all organistions to continue to invest in their female talent pool. Both myself, my team, our sponsors, judges and supporters are very much looking forward to celebrating with all of our winners at the NewsUK on 12 July”.
