One of Wiltshire’s leading law firms, Goughs Solicitors, is delighted to announce that they have secured the accolade of runner-up law firm of the year awarded by a distinguished panel of High Court and District Judges at the recent GWILS awards dinner.

The GWILS awards celebrate the excellence and achievements of the legal profession across both Gloucestershire and Wiltshire and the “Law Firm of the Year” was a highly competitive category – not surprising, as it was the evening’s most coveted award.

The firm’s “Goughs Values” initiative was put forward for nomination and involved the creation of a trust-based environment and a shared vision to help inspire all employees, allowing them to take ownership over performance-enhancing interactions every day. Goughs’ aim is to foster an engaging, high performance culture which is celebrated through reward and recognition.

Kevin Basnett, Managing Partner of Goughs Solicitors, said “We are proud to say that Goughs was the only firm in Wiltshire to win an award in this category, and to be recognised as one of the foremost law firms by an elite panel of legal professionals is a real honour”.

“This award is a fitting tribute to the hard work and dedication of all of our people, who are all ambassadors for the firm. Above all, our Values initiative allows us to deliver a shared vision and consistently high quality service that benefits all of our clients”.
