We recently ran a competition for Year 2 pupils at Grammar School at Leeds to design a new mascot for us to represent Michael Lewin Solicitors.

The winner would see their design come to life in a series of animations and be used in our marketing campaigns for 2017 and 2018!

We're delighted to announce that our winner is Lily Peecock - who designed Mr Tomato (as well as Mr Celery and Mr Pea).

Well done Lily!

Your designs will now feature on our screens and social media, so keep you eyes peeled for a new video every week starring Mr Tomato in a series of unfortunate events.
