Roche Legal are celebrating being shortlisted in the Press Business Awards for the second year running.

Rochel Legal, which has offices in York and Harrogate, won the Press Business Award as the Socially Responsible Business of the Year in 2018 and has now been shortlisted in the Business Innovation of the Year category.

The awards are in their 29th year and celebrate businesses in 10 categories, with an overall Business of the Year winner to be announced at a black-tie dinner at York Racecourse on Thursday, November 21

The 2019 awards are sponsored by York’s Ultra Fibre Optic by TalkTalk and are the only regional awards of their kind, celebrating businesses from all sectors across, York, North and East Yorkshire.

Roche Legal are committed to embracing new technology to deliver an outstanding service to clients, including the development and launch of a cutting-edge online Will writing and Lasting Power of Attorney programme. Roche Legal is currently developing “Solicitor Check”, an online programme that will be accessible to the public to help clarify the types of legal advice on offer, following the shake-up in regulation of the profession by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

Rachel Roche, founder of Roche Legal, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to be recognised again by the Press Business Awards and we were thrilled to collect an award last year. To be nominated as one of the three companies in the Business Innovation of the Year category is a great honour and a recognition of the hard work of everyone at Roche Legal. There are outstanding nominees in every category.”
