A former Fylde student is celebrating after winning a prestigious award from a group of London-based solicitors.
Former Lytham St Annes Technology and Performing Arts College pupil Daniel Lund was presented with the City of London Solicitors’ Company Prize for 2014.
The 25-year-old, of Agnew Street, Lytham, was also given a cheque for £600 to recognise his achievement.
He has now secured a post with American law firm Dechert, based in London.
A spokesman for his new employers said: “Congratulations to Dan Lund, who recently was recognised as the winner of the City of London Solicitors’ Company Prize for 2014.
“The award is given each year to a trainee solicitor at a firm practicing in London or the surrounding area who shows the most promise as a future city solicitor.
“We look forward to seeing what he will do next when he qualifies as a solicitor this autumn and becomes a member of our London litigation team.”
