The prestigious law firm is one of our corporate fund holders which established a fund to support West Dorset groups last year.
Partners Richard King, Tracy Scammell and Jason Hodnett were presented with the trophy at a black-tie awards ceremony on Friday 23 February at the Bournemouth International Centre.
‘We are thrilled to have won this award,’ said Richard King. ‘Celebrating and supporting the community in which we live and work is very important to us at Kitson & Trotman.’
Jason Hodnett said: ‘It means a great deal for the firm to be recognised for something which represents the values we really believe in.’
In addition to the fund which supports West Dorset based groups the firm also runs its own education bursary for a local Law student. The annual bursary makes a vital contribution towards books, tuition fees and living expenses. Students also have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and the firm keeps in touch with their progress.
Kitson & Trotman, which has offices in Bridport, Beaminster, Lyme Regis and Weymouth, provides legal advice and services to business and private clients throughout the South West, nationally and internationally. The firm was founded in 1756 and specialises in property, wills and probate, business, family, dispute resolution and agriculture.
ASH Elite’s Managing Director, Sofie Scott, said: “We are incredibly proud of being able to work with and showcase such fantastic legal talent we have here in Dorset. From 216 original entries, 14 winners have now been crowned and we are already looking forward to seeing what next year’s awards will bring! Huge congratulations to all finalists, winners and everyone who got a special commendation on the night.”
