Insider North East Dealmaker Awards 2016

In September 2016, at their 10th Anniversary Awards, we won:

  • Corporate Law Firm of the Year
  • Deal of the Year (under 10m) – acquisition of Michell Bearings by British Engines
  • Young Dealmaker of the Year – Adam Rayner

Over the last 10 years we have completed 43% (215) more deals than any other law firm in the region (closest rival 150).

Winners are selected following confidential voting by members of the North East business community (banks, accountants, venture capitalists, business leaders and owners, etc.), and we are absolutely delighted to have received such recognition from our peers once again.

Investors in People Awards and Accreditations

  • IIP Gold; and
  • Health and Wellbeing

In June 2016 we were reassessed and reaccredited for IIP Gold status.  We were also awarded the IIP Health and Wellbeing accreditation for the first time.  With only a handful of UK companies, not to mention law firms, to achieve this status, this is a fantastic achievement for the firm.

The Investors in People Gold award represents achievements of world class best practice.  We are proud to be the only law firm in the North East to achieve both awards.  It reflects the support, encouragement and recognition that we give to all our people and is part of our continued commitment to providing an excellent service to all our clients.
