In addition, Griffin Law works pro bono with Hear Their Cries, an international advocacy organisation to protect vulnerable people in the developing world.

With the release of the 116 page Parliamentary Report on Sexual exploitation and abuse in the aid sector, “the scale of the issue is just beginning to be realised and now we need to understand the problem and move forward for solutions”, Andrew Macleod, BBC Interview

Law Society president Christina Blacklaws said: “There are more than 9,000 firms and 140,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to be shortlisted for an Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the best of the best.

“All the firms and solicitors who are shortlisted should be congratulated for the work they do day-in day-out to support their clients, many of whom are navigating complex and challenging legal problems.

“At a time of immense pressure on the justice system, the incredible work being done by solicitors across the country should be applauded.”
