A firm of intellectual property law specialists has lent its backing to the UK’s top businesswomen for the third year running, as it confirmed that it will once again be sponsoring the Best Customer Service category at the Best Business Women Awards this year.

Cathy Ayers, a Partner and Chartered Trade Mark Attorney at Cleveland Scott York, which has offices in St Albans, the City of London, Reading and Brussels, took part in the launch of this year’s awards at the Aubrey Park Hotel in Hertfordshire, on Friday 23 March.

Last year, the firm presented the award to Nevina Holland of Peekaboo Studios, which she had built up in order to offer families a relaxed and homely atmosphere in which to have photographs taken.

Cathy Ayers said: “The achievements of women in business are too often not given the recognition they deserve, which is why we are delighted once again to lend our backing to the Best Business Women Awards this year.

We would encourage all businesswomen with a commitment to delivering exceptional levels of customer service to enter the Customer Service category.

We are looking forward to reading some strong entries in the Best Customer Service category and I suspect we will be faced with some difficult choices ahead of the awards evening in the autumn, where I look forward to congratulating the finalists and overall winner.”

Anyone wishing to enter the Best Business Women Awards can do so by visiting www.bestbusinesswomenawards.com and submitting an entry before the closing date of 31 July 2018.
