One of the leading firms of solicitors in Cheltenham since 1947, our firm is proud to sponsor the Family Business category, and will be presenting the award to the winner on the night.
Paul Symes-Thompson, head of our corporate & commercial team, commented; “We are pleased to be supporting an award that recognises family businesses as vital ingredients in Cheltenham’s thriving businesses community.
“We have been advising family business owners for generations, so we’ve seen first-hand the talent, innovation and hard work involved in their day-to-day operation. Despite the many hurdles they are faced with, family businesses generate nearly half of the UK’s private sector jobs. They are critical to the economic health of our town – and their success is truly something to be proud of.
“It’s great to see finalists from a diverse range of sectors and each of these would make a worthy winner. We wish Beards Jewellers, Chi Wai Black Belt Academy and Cleevely Motors Ltd the very best of luck and will be delighted to present one of these businesses with the award this September.”
