Shoosmiths Scores a Hat-Trick with Third Motor Finance Awards Title

March, 2017 - Northampton, England

National law firm Shoosmiths has been named Legal Provider of the Year for the third consecutive year at the Motor Finance Europe Awards 2017.

Taking the title since the awards began in 2015, Shoosmiths’ has been recognised for its continued excellence in the Motor Finance sector. The team beat off stiff competition to be presented with the accolade at the awards ceremony, held at the Westin Hotel in Frankfurt on the 16th March as part of the annual Motor Finance Conference.

The awards ceremony recognised achievements in the European motor finance industry over the previous 12 months. All winners were selected by an independent judging panel, and by Motor Finance’s editorial team members.

Shoosmiths was represented at the conference by recovery services partners Mel Chell and Roger Potgieter, commercial partner Stephen Dawson and associate Dan Bennett.

Mel Chell commented: ‘To be recognised for the third year running at the Motor Finance Awards speaks volumes about the capabilities of our team and how we always endeavour to place our clients at the heart of what we do.

‘During 2016 Shoosmiths continued to grow its strategy with the clear aim of remaining a leading motor finance team in the UK.

'What is also reassuring is that our client base is growing organically from recommendation and that is a testament to the hard work, expertise and professionalism of the whole team.'

Shoosmiths was last year awarded ‘Litigation Team of the Year’ at the Credit Today Awards and ‘Law Firm of the Year’ at Credit Strategy’s Car Finance Awards.

Shoosmiths’ Recovery Services Group also obtained a clean sweep of tier 1 rankings across all regions from which the team operates in the latest Legal 500 directory.
