Double Award Success for JB Leitch Solicitors

  • Posted on

This week JB Leitch is celebrating winning two awards in the Property Management 50 2022 accolades which recognise the excellence and contribution of leading individuals in raising standards in the residential property management industry.

Further to celebrating our 25th anniversary in May, we have further cause for cheer this week as Business Development Director Karen Bolland and Legal Director Phil Parkinson received awards in the Supplier and Influencer categories of the Property Management 50 Awards.

The “PM 50s”, now in their 4th year, are organised by the teams at Property Management Recruitment and Flat Living Magazine and include a panel of highly respected and well known judges from within the property management sector. Voting (open to colleagues, clients and industry peers) recognises the contribution of the top 50 individuals in raising standards and providing excellence within the residential property management industry.

Business Development Director Karen Bolland, a recipient of the “Legend” Award in 2019, received a win within the Supplier category, with recognition of Karen’s “unrivalled level of intuitive, predictive and practical advice and an innate knowledge of the concerns facing landlords, investors, property management companies and agents in a changing landscape”. Karen has also been instrumental in leading a host of business development projects across client management and digital services in recent months.

Legal Director Phil Parkinson, who has been recognised by the Legal 500 as a rising star consecutively in the last three years, has further bolstered his strong reputation by receiving Influencer status in the PM 50s in 2022.

Phil’s nomination recognised the “exceptional commitment in providing clients with clear and comprehensive legal guidance throughout the last year, especially given the challenges wrought by, and following, Covid-19”. Supporting this, along with a series of high-profile case wins, Phil has been a prominent voice in key sector media, providing insight, advice and recommendations across a host of matters facing the property management sector - perhaps most notably in the area of building safety – a specialism for which Phil and the wider litigation team at JB Leitch are both increasingly renowned and successful.

Jonathan Leitch, Owner & Principal Solicitor comments further:

“It’s wonderful to be able to celebrate both Karen and Phil’s awards in our 25th anniversary year, particularly given that these nominations are provided by industry peers and clients - a testament to them both and the client focused approach of the firm as a whole. The industry is going through a period of considerable change and it is great to see that our leading team are being recognised not only as guiding lights to support clients through transition, but in helping set the standards for the wider sector in the years ahead”.
