Birketts shortlisted for Insider's Central & East Dealmakers Awards 2016
The shortlists have been revealed for this year’s Insider's Central & East Dealmakers Awards and Birketts has been nominated once again in the ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’ category.
Adrian Seagers, Head of Birketts' Corporate Services Division commented: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award. The last year has seen Birketts’ Corporate and Commercial Team complete transactions with a total deal value in excess of £550m as the firm continues to consolidate its position as one of the strongest firms in the Eastern region and to grow a client base with an increasingly international outlook.
Adrian continued: “Notable transactions include advising Palletforce on its £30m sale to an international private equity firm, being instructed by the Medisafe Group on its £27m sale to US-based Steris and advising Ncase Limited on its international exit to the SFS Group. The team’s reputation for building strong multi-skilled teams delivering specific industry expertise is also evidenced in recent transactions such as Toplevel Computing (technology), Talbot Timber (a family-owned business) and Lifestyle Europe motor dealer group (motor retail).”
Jonathan Agar, Chief Executive Officer at Birketts, added:” Birketts remain fully committed to providing technical excellence and exceptional client service which has enabled us to recruit a number of senior lawyers and strengthen our corporate and commercial offering. Notably, Ed Savory (Legal Director) has joined the Norwich team, bringing with him his nationally recognised expertise in franchising and Birketts is now an affiliate member of the British Franchise Association. A number of other senior lawyers, all of whom have previously worked in top City law firms, have also joined the firm including intellectual property specialist Nellie Jackson, alongside corporate lawyers Andrea Curtis and Alexandra Nelson.”
The winners will be announced on 9 November 2016.
