Hethertons reflects on the success of York’s small businesses following its sponsorship of the Press Business Awards

 One of York’s leading legal firms, Hethertons Solicitors, has said the contributions of small business to the city’s economy should not be undervalued.

The firm’s comments come following its sponsorship of the Small Business of the Year category at the 2018 Press Business Awards – an event which the firm has supported for a number of years.

This year’s winner, Netsells, is indicative of the exceptional success of innovative small business in York and the surrounding area, according to Hethertons Solicitors.

Netsells provide cutting edge digital solutions to businesses at around the world, including the development of mobile applications and eCommerce sites.

Since it was founded seven years ago, the company has rapidly grown to become recognised as the leading laravel development agency in the UK, creating solutions with a focus on the shared economy and internal systems.

It was one of three local businesses shortlisted in the Small Business of the Year category, which also included Playscheme, a family-run company creating bespoke play areas and Yorkshire Heart, an award-winning vineyard and winery.

“As this year’s awards demonstrated, the diversity of small businesses in York is fantastic,” said Simon Nellar, a Director at Hethertons Solicitors.

“We are very proud of our long association with the Press Business Awards and we feel that they are a very effective way of celebrating the success of small businesses, which continue to play such an important role locally.”

Simon was one of the many people to attend the awards event on 15 November 2018 at York Racecourse and was delighted to hand over the award to the winners.

Hethertons offers a wide range of services to businesses, whether they require assistance with employment advice, dispute resolution or commercial property support.
