Pearson Solicitors Scoop Business of the Year Award

  • Posted on

Pearson Solicitors are celebrating after winning ‘Business of the Year’ at the recent One Oldham Business Awards.

At a packed event at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Oldham, on Friday night Partners Christopher Burke and Richard Eastwood, and Practice Manager Joanne Ormston accepted the award in front of a 460 strong crowd of local business leaders and guests.

The aim of the awards is to celebrate business success, whilst also recognising the contribution that businesses make in helping to shape the fabric of our society.  During their deliberations the judges looked at wealth creation, innovation, inspirational leadership and good practice in people management, skills development or environmental issues.

Pearson Solicitors were one of three finalists in the medium sized business section £1m - £5m.

Speaking after accepting the award Christopher Burke, Partner in Pearson Solicitors’ commercial litigation team said:  “I am very proud of all the team at Pearson Solicitors who work so hard for their clients day in day out and to get this recognition and accolade is just the icing on the cake. 

“This is a great achievement for us and a proud moment for everyone in the firm.  There are some very innovative businesses out there and some long-standing established companies with an impeccable track record. 

To be recognised alongside them as one of the best in the area is an honour and to win Business of Year shows that as a firm we are going from strength to strength.”

Steve Kilroy, Chair of the One Oldham Business Awards Steering Group added:
“The awards provide a platform to celebrate business achievement and act as a confidence boost to inspire further development and growth.”
