One of Western Australia’s leading law firms — whose managing director regularly joins Mornings host Mike — has just taken out two of the most prestigious awards recognised by the legal sector in WA.

The Attorney General’s Community Service Law Award 2017 went to HHG Legal Group on Monday 15 May as part of the Annual Law Society of WA Law Week Breakfast.

The award recognised the outstanding contribution of pro bono legal services provided to the community by the firm. This included honouring the creation of a charitable arm of HHG Legal Group — HHG Giving Back.

The Law Society of WA 2017 Lawyer of the Year Award was presented to HHG Legal Group managing director Simon Creek at the Law Society of WA Law Awards on Thursday 18 May.

Each year these awards recognise practitioners who have made a significant contribution to the legal profession in WA. Simon’s leadership of the HHG Legal Group pro bono legal advice clinics across WA, board role at Hagar International (a NGO fighting the trafficking of women and children), his role as managing director of HHG Legal Group, the outstanding results of his 12-lawyer-strong family law team and his leadership of HHG Giving Back under which HHG supports four key charities, are just some of the initiatives honoured by this award.

Simon join Mike fortnightly on Mondays.
