A SOLICITOR from one of the region’s leading law firms is celebrating after being shortlisted in the North East Business Woman of the Year (WIN) awards.
EMG Solicitors director, Jemma Morland, has reached the finals in both the One to Watch and the Leadership Awards categories.
The annual WIN awards are designed to promote and celebrate the achievement of women in business in the North East.
Jemma, who specialises in Court of Protection and Trust matters, will represent EMG in both categories, after beating off competition from across the region to make the shortlist.
The One to Watch category recognises women who show promise to become the big regional success story of tomorrow, and the winner will be someone who can show a dedicated effort to drive their career forward.
She has also been shortlisted in the Leadership Award category, which is designed to recognise women who are role models to those they work with. Open to women in a senior position, it recognises commitment to transformation, growth or development of an organisation.
Jemma’s double nomination comes just a few weeks since EMG, based at Abbeywoods Business Park, was shortlisted for two categories in the Law Society Excellence Awards.
The firm was set up in 2014 by Court of Protection expert, Emma Gaudern, who is delighted to see another one of her team nominated in a high profile award scheme.
“Once again one of our talented professionals has proved they are among the best in the region by receiving two nominations in this year’s WIN Awards,” she said. “It is always very gratifying for individual members of the team to be recognised.
“Jemma’s two nominations come as further acknowledgement that we are doing the job we always set out to do, and it’s a big boost not just to Jemma, but to everyone who is involved with EMG to know we are being recognised for our hard work and dedication.”
Jemma will find out the results at the North East Business Woman of the Year Awards ceremony at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead in October.
