Curwoods Laywers (Curwoods) is pleased to announce that Monique Langley, Head of Client Services, has been named Business Development Professional of the Year at the 2016 Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards. These awards, which recognise individual excellence in Australian law, were held at the Four Points by Sheraton in Sydney on Friday, 2 September 2016.
“Congratulations to Monique on being named Business Development Professional of the Year,” said Scott Kennedy, Managing Partner. “Your win shows the depth of talent at Curwoods and acknowledges that lawyers can not function without having a talented and committed support team to work with.”
“As a business development professional, I am incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to proactively develop my own client relationships in a client-facing role,” said Monique. “With the support of Scott and the partners at Curwoods, I have been able to build a trusted advisor relationship with both internal stakeholders and clients, leading to increased revenue and profitability and positive client feedback. Together, we make a great team!”
