The joint managing partner of Leeds-based law firm Clarion has hailed the Business Masters Awards as “among the most prestigious in the region”.

Roger Hutton’s comments come as entries for this year’s black tie dinner, which will be held on Thursday April 26 at The Queens Hotel in Leeds, close on Friday.

Hutton said: “As well as raising our profile with clients and potential clients, it’s always good for team morale to have everyone’s hard work and commitment recognised with an award.

“The Business Masters are among the most prestigious in the region and we were very proud to be chosen as the winner of the professional services category.

“We’re always pleased to be part of any initiative which celebrates the great business being done here in Yorkshire.”

Two new awards have been added to the programme this year – Innovation and Turnaround. Altogether, businesses can enter into up to 12 awards categories.
