Cripps has been shortlisted for one of the most prestigious national awards in the commercial property industry.


The law firm is one of only five practices to have been selected for Real Estate Legal Team of the Year in the Estates Gazette Awards 2016.


Head of real estate Mike Scott said he is delighted that the hard work and expertise of the team – the largest of its kind in the south east – has been recognised in this way.


“The quality of our client base, which includes some of the most successful investors and developers in the property industry, is a reflection of the calibre of our team and the work we do,” he said. “We are already ranked by Chambers as a national leader in real estate and it is great to have this further high profile acknowledgement of our expertise.”


Cripps was chosen by an independent panel of property experts and is competing for the top award with global law firms Berwin Leighton Paisner, Hogan Lovells and Herbert Smith Freehills; and Shoosmiths, a leading national practice. The winner will be announced on 20 September.


Mike Scott added: “It is a tremendous achievement for us to be in such good company and testament to the great work our real estate lawyers do on a daily basis.”


The announcement comes hot on the heels of Cripps being shortlisted for the Conveyancing Firm of the Year (South of England) category in the Modern Law Conveyancing Awards 2016.
