The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony hosted by BBC Radio 4 Today and BBC News presenter Mishal Husain on 22 October 2015 at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London.
Taylor Wessing LLP has been shortlisted for Excellence in Learning & Development. Taylor Wessing has designed a Partners Career Reflections programme, creating time and space for partners to reflect on their careers and to think about their aspirations and plans for the year ahead.
Law Society president Jonathan Smithers said: “The Law Society Excellence Awards are a reminder of the value of the all too often unsung work of solicitors.
"I am proud that my profession has so many impressive individuals who continue to innovate and thrive even in challenging economic and legislative environments, seeking to serve their clients and communities in the best way that they possibly can.
"I am delighted, on behalf of the Law Society and the profession, to have this opportunity to celebrate the contributions made to society, to business and to the legal sector by this year's nominated individuals, teams and firms.
"It is inspiring and motivating to read of the fantastic work being done by solicitors across the country and the profession. I congratulate this year's finalists and look forward very much to meeting them at the awards ceremony in October."
