Hannah Dale and Watsons Solicitors are celebrating after the trainee was shortlisted for the Apprentice of the Year honour at the prestigious Warrington Business Awards.

Hannah is on the three-strong shortlist for the award which is open to any individual who has undergone a full-time training position during the period from January 2020 to September 2022.

Now more than 12 months into a two-year traineeship, Hannah has made great progress at the Cheshire law firm, where she has spent time in the wills and probate and family departments.

On her nomination, Hannah said: “I try my best to be a positive person in the office and that has hopefully shone through.

“I’m honoured to have been put forward to the award and I have Danny (Hudson, Watsons partner and member of the family department) to thank for putting the news everywhere!

“It has been fantastic to receive so many positive messages from all kinds of people, not just my friends, family, and colleagues. 

“The awards are an important item in the Warrington business calendar because they showcase how great the town is.

“It’s wonderful to be nominated and to be part of what will hopefully be an amazing night.”

Danny, who has volunteered on the awards committee since 2016, was thrilled to see Hannah shortlisted for a trophy.

He said: “This is due recognition for a member of staff who works incredibly hard, adds to the team, and will be a fantastic solicitor. Well done, Hannah!

“It’s all set to be a fantastic night and tickets are being snapped up, so if you don’t want to miss out, make sure you get your hands on some soon.”
