Brethertons' Partner, Roger Hardwick, wins Solicitor of the Year award at ERMA Awards 2023

Brethertons are proud to announce Roger Hardwick, Partner in Residential Leasehold, has won the title of Solicitor of the Year at the ERMA Awards 2023.

At a splendid event on 6th July 2023 in London, the News on the Block ERMA Awards, Roger and our Residential Leasehold team were in attendance. The awards recognise and celebrate excellence in the UK Leasehold, Right to Manage and Enfranchisement industry.

Acting for both landlords and leaseholders, Roger understands the motivations of both parties and demonstrates an in-depth knowledge of the relevant legislation and case law in this complex area of Law. This enables him to build robust strategies to advance and protect his clients’ best interests.

Leasehold enfranchisement, lease extensions and the Right to Manage are highly complex areas and require a specialist who understands the legislation and legal precedents inside out. Roger is meticulous in ensuring that all points, traps, pitfalls and loopholes are covered. He understands that providing a legal service is not just about technical expertise, but the importance of building long-term, personal relationships with his clients.  Roger is a well-deserving winner for Solicitor of the Year.

The Solicitor of the Year award focuses on solicitors who have made impact in their role and firm, but also, across the sector as a whole.

Client Services Partner, Debbie Phillips says of the award, “I am thrilled for Roger to have been recognised for this award. The recognition within the industry is testament to his outstanding commitment to the industry. Roger plays a key role in the development of leasehold case law and legislation working hard to achieve the very best results. I am very proud.”
