Aequitas’ Most Senior Solicitor Shortlisted for Prestigious Accolade


Nick Harrison, senior associate at Aequitas Legal, has fought off tough competition to be shortlisted for the ‘Associate of the Year’ title at the 2015 Manchester Legal Awards.

Nick says: “I was delighted to have been nominated, so to be shortlisted for the ‘Associate of the Year’ category at the 2015 Manchester Legal Awards makes me extremely proud. 

I have spent my whole career to-date working in Manchester’s very close-knit legal community and I intend to continue working in the city for the foreseeable future.  Whilst focussing on running a very full book of varied work alongside helping Aequitas Legal develop marketing initiatives, it is both pleasing and encouraging to pause for reflection on this personal achievement.”

Ran by the Manchester Law Society and the Manchester Evening News, the Manchester Legal Awards provides an exciting opportunity for local law firms to come together and recognise the variety of legal talent that Manchester has to offer.

The judging panel was impressed by Nick’s contribution to the firm and commitment to consistent improvement of client experience, which has aided Aequitas Legal’s success.

Nick was interviewed by the judging panel shortly after the announcement of the shortlisting and says: “I wanted to get across that the my role involves not just my core case handling duties but also supervising and mentoring other staff so that they can develop themselves and their careers. 

There is a weight of responsibility which I have always taken very seriously and I enjoy having that supervisory and development role.  Being shortlisted for this individual rather than team award is nevertheless down to the team around me, as to achieve what I have done in case work and other projects cannot be done alone.”

The Manchester Legal Awards will be taking place at The Midland Hotel on the 5th March 2015.
