Birketts shortlisted for Insider's Central & East of England Dealmakers Awards 2014
The shortlists have been revealed for Insider's Central & East of England Dealmakers Awards 2014 and Birketts has been shortlisted as ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’. Additionally, the sale of The Dental Directory has been nominated as 'Deal of the Year'; a transaction that Chelmsford office partner, Rafael Ruiz, led for Birketts.
Adrian Seagers, head of Birketts' corporate services division commented: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award. Having just been announced as the corporate and commercial regional firm of the year at The Legal 500 UK Awards (8 October 2014) this reaffirms our strength in depth across the firm. Our corporate teams have been involved in some major deals over the last year. Birketts has advised on almost £500m of corporate deals since 1 January 2014, including advising on the £90m capital funding of Servest Group Limited and the sale of The Dental Directory to a purchaser backed by the global private equity investor, The Carlyle Group.”
CEO Jonathan Agar added: "Our corporate and commercial team is really making a name for itself in the market. Birketts has just completed the £250K seed investment on behalf of Cumulus Energy Storage Limited, as well as completing a £4m investment on behalf of Business Growth Fund. The recognition is hugely deserved and illustrates the commitment and dedication of the whole corporate services division."
The winners will be announced on 23 October 2014.
