Outstanding Case of the Year 2022 – The National Personal Injury Awards

In 2022, we were nominated for and won Outstanding Case of the Year 2022, hosted by The National Personal Injury Awards. The Dental Law Partnership was nominated for this award due to our case, Hughes v Rattan. As well as clarifying the law, this case is also now used as a teaching point within the modern legal sector, showing how ground-breaking our work is.

During the case, the Court of Appeal confirmed that the defendant practice was liable to the claimant on the basis that the practice owed the claimant a non-delegable duty of care. As a patient of the dental practice involved, the claimant was classed as being under the care of that practice, leading to the defendant practice being found liable for the dental negligence suffered by the claimant.

The National Personal Injury Awards highlights and celebrates the excellence and strengths of both individuals and organisations across the legal sector, covering a range of law firms with unique specialisations. These awards provide a fantastic opportunity to highlight and celebrate the excellence of those working within the legal sector, ensuring their hard work goes rewarded.

Being nominated for Outstanding Case of the Year 2022 is an honour in itself, and winning this award is a fantastic indicator of the talent our personal injury team has.

Each category in The National Personal Injury Awards is specifically designed to recognise the achievements of law firms and individual legal practitioners. An independent panel of experts judges the event, ensuring an impartial decision is reached for each award.

As such, winning Outstanding Case of the Year 2022 shows that the Dental Law Partnership has a commitment to client care, championing those who need our services the most.

Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2023 – The Lawyers Awards

Another fantastic award we’ve been nominated for is Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2023, hosted by The Lawyers Awards. Whilst the winners haven’t been announced yet, being nominated for this award is something to be celebrated in its own right. The shortlist for the awards was announced in April – the awards ceremony itself is to be held on 20th June 2023 at London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel.

The Lawyers Awards celebrate the best legal representation in the UK, focusing on both individuals and law firms. The ceremony is a real testament to the wealth of legal knowledge circulating within the British Isles, honouring the best and brightest currently working within the legal sector. 27 categories have been announced at present, making this event one of the main highlights of the year for those working within the legal industry.

The Lawyers Awards are judged by an esteemed panel of experts from across the field, including members of The Bar, as well as a selection of in-house lawyers and those working within private practices. The judges score each entry, create the initial shortlists for every category and choose the champions, giving their own input throughout the entire process. 

The Lawyers Awards are one of the most credible awards ceremonies within the legal industry, so it’s a compliment for the Dental Law Partnership to be considered for such a prestigious award.

We have good faith in the skills of our dedicated team, and we hope to have an update with you as soon as the winners of Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2023 are announced!
