Enterprise Vision Awards 2016 finalistWatson Ramsbottom Director Rachel Horman has been shortlisted for the Enterprise Vision Awards 2016. The awards recognise the achievements of women in business from across the North West with the winners being announced at the awards event in Blackpool in September.

Rachel is recognised as the nationally renowned expert in her specialist field of stalking, domestic abuse and honour based violence both as a practitioner and campaigner having spearheaded law change in these areas.

In a testimonial for Rachel’s achievements, the former CEO of Paladin the National Stalking Advocacy service said “Rachel Horman has been pioneering women’s leadership in legal practice for over twenty years.  Often she is the first to comment on cutting edge developments in law reform such as stalking and coercive control.  In addition she actively contributes to institutional reform to bring about innovative changes in law and practice, often well before these become topical or even thought of as possible.

Rachel has an exceptional ability to engage clients who are at extreme risk.  Through her tenacity, extensive legal knowledge and an innate sense of justice, she is genuinely able to help clients feel safer and gain enhanced legal or civil protection that reduces their risk.  Having specialised in this ares of work for over 20 years, she has become a catalyst for change and earned her stripes as a respected advocate for women and children rights.”

WR Director Stuart Maher said, ” We wish Rachel every success with this award – it would be another fitting and highly deserved accolade for Rachel’s significant achievements in her career”
