Karen Herbert, partner at Spearing Waite solicitors in Leicester explains why the firm has pledged its support to the Leicester Mercury Women in Business Awards 2018.

Female business leaders and entrepreneurs play a vital role in Leicestershire’s thriving economy yet we know, from our own client base of talented women in business, that they are often too modest to shout about their achievements.

This is one of the reasons that Spearing Waite is delighted to lend its support to the Leicester Mercury Women in Business Awards.

The Women in Business Awards have become a key fixture in the county’s business calendar and shine a spotlight on the outstanding female business leaders and senior executives across Leicestershire and Rutland.

As Leicester’s largest single site law firm we are committed both to our fantastic and diverse county and to helping our talented female entrepreneurs and business owners to thrive and flourish.

We are also proud of our own track record of attracting highly talented and ambitious female employees.

Two of our most recent recruits include partner and head of property litigation Rachael McConaghie, and partner Caroline Smith, who has brought across her retail sector team from Shakespeare Martineau.

Accurate, effective and friendly legal advice is a key element in successful business growth. From helping establish the correct contractual footing, through to advice on employment, real estate and intellectual property matters, Spearing Waite’s legal team is firmly on the side of women in business.

We are delighted to sponsor the Leicester Mercury Women in Business awards and wish all entrants the very best of luck, both with the Awards and in business.

The Women in Business Awards take place at Leicester Tigers’ Welford Road Stadium, on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

Spearing Waite is sponsoring the New Business of the Year category, which recognises those early stage businesses that have great potential to succeed, create jobs and contribute to the local economy. The award will be presented by our head of property litigation, Rachael McConaghie.
