On Thursday evening, the elite of the Yorkshire legal profession gathered together at New Dock Hall in Leeds to celebrate the region's talent and achievements over the last 12 months.

This is our second year sponsoring the Yorkshire Legal Awards and we would like to say a massive congratulations to all of the winners and thank Barker Brooks for organising an amazing evening. 

Take a look at some of our favourite photos from the night below:

The live band, Hipster, was a particular highlight. They did a brilliant job of getting everybody on the dance floor.

As well as honouring excellence in the Yorkshire legal profession, the awards also raised money for charity, with all funds raised from the raffle donated to Martin House Children's Hospice.
