Lorraine Lockie, Managing Partner of North West based law firm Gorvins Solicitors, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2016 E3 Business Awards, which will be held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton on Friday 3rd June.
Lorraine, Managing Partner and Head of Residential Property was selected from amongst hundreds of nominees to become one of the finalists for the prestigious Outstanding Woman in Business Award category.
Speaking as a finalist Lorraine said: “I’m thrilled to have been shortlisted for this award. My career to date has been hugely satisfying and to be recognised in this way is extremely flattering. I work with a team of dedicated and talented people whom I must thank for helping make Gorvins what it has become today.”
“Each year, it becomes more of an achievement to win a finalist’s place,” said Mubarak Chati, Managing Director of 1 Events Media, which hosts the E3 Awards. “Every year since we’ve started, we’ve seen an increase in nominations and a corresponding increase in quality. This year, across all sixteen award categories, we’ve seen an increase of around 25% on last year. That’s on top of last year’s increase which was itself up more than 30% on 2014.
“We’ve had nominations from throughout the North West and we’ve seen real strength in all areas. It’s always been a key purpose of the Awards to celebrate the achievement of all parts of the community – not just the mainstream – so to see charities, young entrepreneurs and women coming forward in such numbers is very gratifying indeed.
“Given the number and the high standard of entries, we certainly gave the Nominations Panel a difficult job. They have risen to the challenge, though, and their final selections represent the very best of the whole North West region. For Lorraine and Gorvins Solicitors to have been named as a finalist for 2016 is an achievement of which she should be very proud.”
