FRU is charity partner for prestigious The Lawyer Awards 2022

We were delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner for The Lawyer Awards 2022. The Lawyer is a legal magazine and website that mainly covers commercial law in the UK. Each year The Lawyer runs an awards programme that culminates in a prestigious ceremony in a top London hotel. The awards celebrate and recognise legal excellence in law firms and chambers.

The awards ceremony was held on 12 July and hosted by comedian Jason Manford. Over 1200 attendees from the shortlisted legal teams and individual nominees heard about FRU's work in a presentation by Jason Manford. FRU was also the beneficiary of a silent auction to win 70 amazing lots. FRU Chief Executive David Abbott was also invited to present the award for pro bono initiative of the year.

FRU CEO David Abbott said " this is the third year that we have been in partnership with The Lawyer magazine. We are immensely grateful to Dr Catrin Griffiths and the whole team at The Lawyer for working with us, raising funds and giving our work amazing exposure to the commercial legal sector. The awards ceremony was a wonderful occasion with so many deserving winners".
