A family affair for this year’s BIBAs!

Family businesses are the lifeblood of our region, embodying the values of hard work, dedication, and resilience that define Lancashire’s entrepreneurial spirit.

From small, local enterprises to multi-generational corporations, these businesses have left an indelible mark on our economy and society.

The Family Business of the Year award seeks to honour the outstanding contributions of these enterprises, celebrating their achievements, innovation, and commitment to excellence.

It acknowledges not only their business success but also their role as pillars of the community, creating jobs, supporting local suppliers, and giving back to their neighbourhoods.

Last year, popular city centre venue 1842 Restaurant & Bar walked away with the prestigious award and applications for this year’s categories shows there’s going to be some tough competition.

Once again, Brabners are sponsoring the Family Business of the Year category, bringing its extensive legal expertise to support businesses across various sectors.

With a legacy spanning over two centuries, Brabners has earned a stellar reputation for its comprehensive legal services catering to diverse clients, including SMEs, public sector bodies, and high-net-worth individuals.

Renowned for its work across sectors such as charity, healthcare, manufacturing, and real estate, Brabners exemplifies its commitment to recognizing and celebrating the vital role of family businesses in Lancashire’s economy.

Tom Smith, partner at Brabners, said: “At Brabners, we work with hundreds of well-known family businesses, advising them in all areas of their business and personal lives – we therefore understand their unique qualities and the challenges they face.

“Brabners is a purpose-driven law firm, and it was inspiring to be part of last year’s Family Business of the Year category, not only to learn about these companies brilliant success stories, but also how they share our passion to invest and make the difference in the communities they operate.

“We’re looking forward to again being part of the BIBAs this year and help shine a light on the brilliant family-owned firms from across Lancashire.”
