We are pleased to announce that the Legal Services team at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) won the In-House Public Sector Team category at The Lawyer Awards ceremony on 23 June 2015.

Rachel Sandby-Thomas, Solicitor and Director General at BIS, was at the awards ceremony to collect the award. Rachel said,

‘This is a stunning tribute to the high quality work we carry out day in day out and a fitting reward to all the team who work so very hard’.

This is the third time in recent years that GLS legal teams have been recognised in this way. In 2012, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport Legal Advisers won the In-House Public Sector Team category. In 2013, the same award went to HM Revenue and Customs.
