Paragon Law scoops hat-trick of accolades.

Nottingham based Paragon Law, the niche immigration law firm, is celebrating after receiving three major accolades.

It has been awarded Mid-Market Business Immigration Law Firm of the Year by the Global 100 index and has been awarded Corporate Immigration Law Service Provider of the Year in England by the international network, Global Advisory Experts.

Both of the awards are given following peer recommendation and an assessment by a judging panel.

The firm has also once again secured a rating of Excellent with the Law Society’s Lexcel quality benchmark for law firms, all the more remarkable for being achieved in lockdown.

Lexcel sets the required Standard in seven different areas: structure and strategy, financial management, information management, people management, risk management, client care and case management.

Global Advisory Experts (GAE) is a guide to the leading advisory professionals in the world, with a membership of over 2000 experts in over 140 countries.

Global 100 consists of only 100 of the world’s leading firms and individuals, with votes received from global readers, in over 163 countries worldwide. The judges were asked to strongly focus on the complexity and strategic significance of the work conducted by the shortlisted firms.

David Wakefield of Global 100 commented that as a winner, Paragon Law demonstrated that; “they are an industry leader and are an exemplary team in immigration law.”

Lexcel sets the required Standard in seven different areas: structure and strategy, financial management, information management, people management, risk management, client care and case management.

Most importantly, according to Paragon Law’s Practice Manager James Firman, it helps raise standards and promote a quality management approach to practice management and client care.

He said: “This is our fifth Lexcel accreditation in a row and they are always an incredibly rigorous process. However, this year was made all the more challenging due to the unprecedented upheaval of the Covid-19 crisis and the associated Lockdown period. We were already working on a more agile approach to working prior to the crisis with remote and flexible working becoming more commonplace but that can present challenges, especially when you are working to the exacting standards expected of Lexcel.”

Paragon Law’s Managing Director Thal Vasishta added: “The team has been quick to embrace the new ‘’normal’’ and we’ve been able to adapt very quickly to the changes as we have a very innovative culture here at Paragon. We are making major investments in our IT infrastructure, as well as working to the excellent guidelines of the Law Society.

“The support of the business community, be it clients, suppliers, other professional services and organisations such as the CBI, East Midlands Chamber, MSDUK and Nottingham Partners has been invaluable to our business. Ultimately, our Lexcel rating and awards is testament to all of the Paragon people who have continued to provide excellent customer service and supported each other during this time.”
