Anthony Evans, partner and head of corporate, said: "It is great to be recognised for the work we’ve done in the last year.  Its an impressive shortlist this year - to be nominated in so many categories is a great testament to our team and the service we provide. It's been another busy year for us, including being named by Experian as the region’s most active corporate law firm.

“It’s great recognition for our fantastic clients too - to whom we owe a big thank you; we have the privilege of working with great people – and they have created some hugely impressive transactions over the last 12 months.”
