Smith Partnership is celebrating after securing a double triumph at the recent Derby and District Law Society Awards.

Partner Russell Davies was named Commercial Lawyer of the Year, while  trainee solicitor Amelia Sutcliffe was announced as Trainee Lawyer of the Year.

Russell, who was nominated by partner and debt recovery lawyer Claire Twells, specialises in commercial dispute resolution and has particular expertise in litigation relating to leases and tenancies of pubs.

Amelia started as a legal secretary in the firm’s childcare department before embarking on her three-year training contract.

Having recently completed her placement in Smith Partnership’s personal injury department, she is now back in childcare and was nominated for her award by partner Clare Cuomo – who Amelia worked for in her legal secretary days.

Claire Twells said: “We’re really proud of both Amelia and Russell for picking up these awards and demonstrating that Smith Partnership’s lawyers are at the top of their game.

“Russell has a long and successful track record representing some of our biggest and longest-serving clients, while Amelia exemplifies a new generation of lawyers who are blending hard work in the office with commitment to their local community.”
