Keoghs celebrates its latest win.

RollOnFriday is delighted to award Keoghs its first ever award, for Saddest Trophy Cabinet. 

When a firm dedicates a whole section of its website to awards, you might expect it to have some. However, visitors to Keoghs will instead find a heartbreaking notification that the "content" is "TBC", alongside a watermarked Shutterstock image of a woman looking at something in VR, presumably a shelf full of dazzling imaginary prizes:


The area headed "Our Awards" is extensive, but, it turns out, purely aspirational:

Or perhaps the firm just cleaned up at the Example Awards 2021.

Should Keoghs decide to fill some of the blank spaces, it can always place its senior partner on an awards judging panel; or put forward a long-retired lawyer for a prize; or shoot low for a Gold-ish standard for women; or just make something up.

Until then, Keoghs might just be the Spurs of the legal world:

Looks like IT was given an early morning spanking, the section has been deleted. Sad, it was a testament to the firm's optimism.

Not sure about that, I love Bolton.  The best firm in that town has to be Glaister Plumbing and Heating.  5* reviews and tons of happy punters.  I cannot be sure how Glaister would measure up to Keoghs in terms of an ability to generate coherent pleadings or to manage litigation in a reasonable manner.  Very favourably, would be my guess.

It’s not all about Bolton. Keoghs has a City office with a special room for awards. It’s not empty. It’s got a pink carpet.

About time Keoghs started getting a mention on ROF. Great work. Classic crappery revealed to the World. I bet IT had a bo!!@cling today 😂

Keoghs have actually won lots of awards, bless them - a bit of gentle ribbing never hurt anybody though!

I seem to recall that before their expensive rebranding Keoghs were the Lancashire 5-a-side league runner up. 

Surely that’s worth a web site splash and a photo of the award?

Other awards include the most predictable hiring by picking off disillusioned staff from DACB and DWF.

To 14.36 25 February 22 15:23

Agreed. If by disillusioned you mean the staff who are being managed out.  

Keoghs are known for relying on other firms to train staff. Their own trainee arrangements aren’t up to much.

Indeed, it makes them look like the Tottenham of the (English) legal world. Spurs supporters would fit right in and enjoy the self-deprecatory humour.

Further, to be even more like TH Ltd, they need to be owned by an offshore entity, a parsimonious wage structure, refuse to shell out for top talent and have a high turnover of MPs.

It cheers me up to see Spurs in a story with Keoghs. Bit harsh on Spurs though. Even after all these years with no silverware. And I speak as a Highbury man.
