EMBL Fastest 40 award-winner Ian Morris, who has been with Edward Hands & Lewis and the EHL Group since September 2012, has won the “Business Development Professional of the Year” award at the Eclipse Proclaim Modern Law Awards after being selected as a finalist against four other business development specialists from across the UK.
He said: “I was in shock when they announced my name as I had researched into the successes that the other finalists had implemented in their businesses. I am overwhelmed at being recognised for this award and cannot thank my team and everyone at EHL for being so supportive.
“EHL prides itself on not being normal and I absolutely believe that it has been our new twist on classical business development and marketing strategies that enabled us to be recognised for this award”.
Now in their fourth year, the Eclipse Proclaim Modern Law Awards celebrate and identify talent and success in entrepreneurship, market development, business management and best practice in the modern legal services arena. The Modern Law Awards are an opportunity to celebrate not only innovative business leaders but those changing the face of business strategy and development, regulation management and client care throughout the organisation – for both short and long-term gain.
The winners were all chosen by a cross-industry panel of high-profile judges and announced at a ceremony at The Hurlingham Club, London this month.
