The annual awards, which this year was hosted by 90’s television personality, Tim Vincent, recognises success and innovation within the property sector across Wales.

Caroline O’Flaherty, partner in our commercial property team, who collected the award on behalf of the team last night, said:

“After an extremely challenging 18 months, last night’s Insider Property Awards was a wonderful celebration of innovative developments, design and talent. It was, of course, made all the more special as Hugh James’ commercial property’s team efforts were again recognised with the prestigious Property Law Firm of the Year award.

“Everyone attending enjoyed the ability to at last catch up ‘en masse’ with clients, funds, agents and developers. It was uplifting to take this moment to appreciate the remarkable resilience and success of the Welsh property sector and to dare to look forward with hope and optimism at the future deals still to be done!”

Peter Hurn, Head of Commercial Property commented:

“We are truly humbled and honoured to have won the “Insider Property Law Firm of the Year Wales 2021” award. The award is testament to the dedication and hard work of the Hugh James Commercial Property Team over the course of the last 18 months. It has taken a monumental effort to ensure that we were and are still able to service our clients, in the face of such adversity.

“We set out our mission statement early on during the first lockdown, to ensure that the Cardiff legal community pulled together to support each other, through what we expected (and proved to be) a very tough period. Everyone in the team, without exception, has been fully committed to providing the highest level of service and this award is no doubt a recognition of our endeavours in seeking to maintain our position at the forefront of the Cardiff property community.

“I would equally like to thank all our legal colleagues and the property community across South Wales for the resilience the Property sector has shown”.
