PLN Australia (PLN) is pleased to announce the Pacific Legal Network has been named a finalist for the Business Services Award at the NSW Export Awards 2017.

PLN is the only law firm to reach the finalist stage of the Awards and this is the third time in seven years PLN has been a finalist, having then gone on to win an award twice.

John Ridgway, Head of Legal Services at PLN said “We are really proud to have again been recognised by being named as a finalist in the NSW Export Awards. As our legal network expands, so do the opportunities for our network firms and our people. Of course this is all happening in synch with our ability to provide a better and broader service to our international clients across a vast part of the globe.”

“A special mention needs to be made of our local PLN partner law firms. We are truly blessed to have such a cohesive and diverse group of amazing people. They each share the recognition of successes such as this.”

Lisa McAuley, CEO of the Export Council of Australia said “The competition is extremely tough and we are thrilled to see a number of new names recognised for their tremendous efforts. It’s fantastic to also see the diversity of the companies that entered the awards this year. To acknowledge and celebrate the success of NSW companies is an important part of encouraging more companies to think global. We congratulate you on being named a finalist in the 55th Premier’s NSW Export Awards".
