Coventry solicitor in contention for second award in six months
A Coventry-based solicitor is in contention to pick up another prestigious award later this year, which would be his second in just six months.
Matthew Riding, a Solicitor in the Commercial Property department at Mander Hadley Solicitors, which has offices in Coventry and Kenilworth, has been named as a finalist in the Young Professional Category at the Coventry and Warwickshire FirstPro Awards.
The rigorous judging process has already seen Mander Hadley Solicitors make a detailed written submission to the judges, which led to Matthew being interviewed by the judging panel earlier in January.
Matthew was nominated for the award in recognition of his professional achievements over the last year, which have included handling a number of significant commercial property transactions successfully on behalf of clients.
He was also central to the firm’s efforts to raise more than £5,000 for the Air Ambulance Service last year.
This saw him complete the Three Peaks Challenge alongside two colleagues, ascending the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in a little more than 24 hours in May 2019.
The recognition comes just two months after Matthew was named Young Lawyer of the Year at the Warwickshire Law Society Awards, where Mander Hadley Solicitors was also named as Warwickshire Law Firm of the Year (1-5 Partners) for the third year running.
Matthew said: “I am very pleased to have been recognised once again. I would like to thank my colleagues and the directors for their support in helping me achieve my professional goals and in completing the Three Peaks Challenge.”
Jonathan Hall, Managing Director at Mander Hadley Solicitors, added: “Matthew deserves all the recognition he gets. His performance in acting for our commercial property clients has been excellent and he is constantly seeking new ways to challenge himself.
“His efforts in instigating and then completing the Three Peaks Challenge are a real indication of the strength of his character and we wish him well for the FirstPro Awards.”
The winners of the FirstPro Awards will be announced at a ceremony at Coombe Abbey on Thursday 2 April 2020.
