Corporate team end 2019 on a high
The award-winning corporate team at Cripps Pemberton Greenish is celebrating a win at The Legal 500 Awards and three shortlistings at the South East Dealmakers Awards 2020.
Partner Ed Weeks has been recognised at The Legal 500 Awards as ‘Dispute Resolution Individual of the Year (outside London)’. The awards, which are run separately to The Legal 500 UK Guide, recognise the best teams and individuals over the past 12 months.
The corporate team has also been shortlisted at the South East Dealmakers Awards, in three categories:
- Private Equity Deal of the Year for advising Broden Media on its sale to Nineteen Group
- Corporate Lawyer of the Year: Salim Somjee
- Corporate Law Firm of the Year
The awards, run by Insider Media, celebrate the achievements of the region’s top corporate finance firms, lawyers, banks, private equity houses and individuals.
Head of the corporate group, James Beatton commented: “These shortlistings are a huge achievement for the team and we are proud to be listed. The team has had a strong year and enjoyed working with some fantastic clients of a really high calibre, Broden Media being one of these.
It is also fantastic to see some of the team receiving well-deserved recognition at leading industry awards – congratulations to both Ed and Salim.
Receiving recognitions such as these reaffirm our position as Kent’s leading law firm for businesses. It’s great to end 2019 on such a high and we look forward to continuing to build on this in 2020.”
Winners for the South East Dealmakers awards will be announced at a gala dinner on 6 February 2020, with The Legal 500 award ceremony taking place on 27 February 2020.
