Double Win for Darwin Gray at Wales Legal Awards 2023

November 28, 2023


Darwin Gray took home two awards at the Wales Legal Awards 2023 last Friday, making history as the only firm to have won Employment Team of Year in successive years.

The firm was recognised amongst the best in the Welsh legal sector at a high-profile dinner at Mercure Holland House in Cardiff.

Defending the title of Employment Team of the Year 2022, Darwin Gray was the only firm to take home multiple team awards on the evening, adding Employment Team of the Year 2023 and Real Estate Team of the Year 2023 to its accolades.

The double success comes after one of the greatest periods of growth in the firm’s 22 year history. Our Employment Team, now up to nine members, is recognised and ranked in multiple UK legal directories and has been listed in The Times Best Law Firms Guide.

Fflur Jones, Head of Darwin Gray’s Employment Team and Managing Partner, said of Friday’s success: “We are thrilled to have won the Employment Team of the Year award once again. The award is testament to the talent here at Darwin Gray. We are incredibly proud of the hard work of all our team members”

Winner of the Real Estate Team of the Year award, Darwin Gray’s Commercial Property team works with some of the biggest and best lenders and developers in Wales and has an impressive list of past award wins, including at the Insider Property Awards and Cardiff Property Awards.

The team is headed by Partner, Catherine Burke, who earlier this year was named one of the Top 10 Most Influential Real Estate Lawyers to Watch in Wales 2023 by Business Today.

Speaking of the award win, Catherine said: “We are delighted to be able to add the Wales Legal Awards 2023 to our list of accolades. It is a pleasure to receive this continued industry recognition and we are looking forward to continuing to build on these successes.”
