Express Solicitors are very proud to announce that Raana Afsarpour, one of our Trainee Solicitors, has been nominated for this year’s Manchester Young Legal Talent Awards.
Raana had originally submitted an application for the Rising Star Award, which is presented to someone excellent in their chosen profession. But due to her outstanding achievements, the judges moved her into the Legal Professional of the Year category, which is given to an exceptional individual who has made tremendous contributions to the industry.
The Legal Professional of the Year Award recognises a person’s exemplary performance in their field, no matter whether it’s through their work on major cases, a focus on client care, individual projects or pro bono work.
It is little surprise that Raana impressed the judges so much as her application includes Sponsorship Secretary of the Manchester Trainee Solicitors Group for 2012/2013 and a recent appointment as Chair of the Group for 2013/2014.
When asked about her nomination, Raana said: “I couldn’t be more proud to have been shortlisted for this award alongside such illustrious legal professionals in Manchester. It’s great to be recognised for my dedication to my profession and I hope to continue to achieve positive outcomes for my clients for years to come.”
