THE Medium Business of the Year category is sponsored by SAS Daniels LLP.

A spokesperson said: “It has been said that medium-sized businesses are the engine room of the UK economy. Looking at our own region it’s clear to see that it is the flexibility and tenacity of owner-managed businesses that is helping to drive the economic recovery.

“In Cheshire we have a thriving community of self-made business people, many of whom started out as sole traders or partnerships and have grown to become significant employers in their own right. At SAS Daniels, we’ve witnessed this growth first hand, through increasing demand for quality legal advice tailored to the needs of medium-sized firms.

“These companies need relevant, expert advice from people who are close to their businesses. With five offices across Cheshire, SAS Daniels specialises in advising companies like this on a full range of legal issues, from corporate transactions, property matters and human resources issues to personal advice on private client matters.”
