Halborg & Co. are finalists for Solicitor of the Year Award
Halborg & Co Solicitors
Leicester based law firm Halborg & Co. have great pleasure in announcing that their Senior Solicitor, Scott Halborg, is a finalist for the prestigious Solicitor of the Year award bestowed by the Leicestershire Law Society upon the local solicitor who has made the most contribution to the legal community.
Mr Halborg works from the Leicester offices of Halborg & Co. but appears in Courts and Tribunals all over England and Wales due to having higher rights of audience in all Courts. He founded Halborg & Co. Solicitors in 2004 with a focus on quality and first class service and since that date the firm has acted in relation to literally thousands of matters, where client satisfaction and the best outcome for the client has been of paramount concern at all times.
As a firm Halborg & Co. specialises in corporate and commercial law, employment law and litigation. Within the litigation field the firm has separate divisions for its rapidly-growing work in inheritance law, professional negligence and personal injury. It has acted upon a number of significant cases in recent years, from very high value commercial claims to judicial reviews.
Over the last eight years Mr Halborg has acted for the firm on corporate, employment and litigation matters for many of the local leading companies. He himself splits his time between commercial, employment and litigation work. He is a member of Employment Lawyers Association ('ELA'), the Solicitors Association of Higher Court Advocates and the Society for Advanced Legal Studies. As part of his role for ELA he was recently one of the authors of the Association's report and response to the government's current proposed changes to the Employment Tribunal system.
In the last year Mr Halborg has acted in relation to a number of significant corporate sales and disposals, and it is the size and complexity of this work conducted by a local lawyer that was one of the key reasons for him to be commended and nominated as finalist for Solicitor of the Year. In addition, a number of the negligence cases that he has run recently have had prominent coverage, not least due to the notable settlements achieved for clients.
Mr Halborg is an active committee member of the Leicestershire Law Society and is committed to the local legal community through that role.
