Mehmooda Duke, the Managing Director of Moosa Duke Solicitors has been named Business Woman of the Year 2017 at the Leicester Mercury Women in Business Awards, held at Leicester Tigers on 28th September 2017.
Mehmooda set up the firm in 2003 as a sole practitioner and over the years has gone from strength to strength. Moosa Duke Solicitors now employs 15 people from the offices at 11 De Montfort St, Leicester.
