Neil Lloyd is one of three people up for the Outstanding Individual Contribution category at the LawNet awards that will take place at the organisation’s annual conference on November 23.

“Neil has helped the firm to build a robust sales infrastructure, introduced new technologies and implemented key strategies for people development, all of which have had a positive impact on our business success. He is truly deserving of this award,” added Kim.

Neil, who was previously Head of Sales Development at Lombard, the asset finance business of Royal Bank of Scotland, before moving to FBC Manby Bowdler, also serves on our Strategic Management Board and is head of our 11-strong Residential Property Team.

He said he was delighted to reach the final shortlist for the awards. “As ever at the LawNet Awards there is stiff competition so I am honoured to have reached this stage,” he commented.

“Our achievements at FBC Manby Bowdler are very much a team effort and I’m very aware there are plenty of colleagues who could have been shortlisted so I hope I do the firm proud.”
