Law firm Pinsent Masons won the title Law Firm of the Year in the 16 partners or more category at this year’s Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards.

Greg Lowson, head of the firm’s Birmingham office, said: "Winning this is a just reward for our performance last year.

"It’s a reflection of our reputation as a market leader within the Midlands, and clearly demonstrates the high quality of our work and our commitment to providing clients with the highest quality legal services."

Some of the achievements that led to Pinsent Masons winning the accolade include acting for Advantage West Midlands on the redevelopment of the Old Browns Lane Jaguar plant and advising the regional development agency on the £600 million redevelopment of New Street Station as well as the revamp of Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
