The corporate team at DMH Stallard is celebrating today after scooping the Corporate Law Firm of the Year Award at a top industry awards event.
The Insider South East Dealmakers Awards were held last night (Thursday 2 February) at a glittering ceremony hosted by Strictly Come Dancing winner, Chris Hollins.
The awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious recognition for professionals involved in buying and selling businesses in the South East. This is the fourth time the firm has achieved this honour since 2012.
Jonathan Grant, head of the firm’s corporate department, comments: “We are delighted to have been named Corporate Law Firm of the Year for the second year in a row. The award is voted for by those working on deals in the South East and it is great to have Kate Norgett with us as we launch M&A in Guildford.”
The team had also been shortlisted for a number of other awards. Jonathan and Abigail Owen, Partner in the corporate team, were shortlisted for Corporate Lawyer of the Year, which both had previously won. DMH Stallard had also been nominated for deals under £10m and deals over £10m.
Abigail comments: “It’s been a busy year despite the uncertainties of Brexit; we completed 19 deals in 2016 which is the most we have ever done in a year. The pace of deals in 2017 shows no signs of slowing, with clients committing to buy and some higher value deals emerging.”
Jonathan concludes: “These are exciting times for DMH Stallard with a new Brighton office having just opened. The firm continues to grow and deliver great results, which in turn is helping us attract high quality lawyers.”
The DMH Stallard corporate team advises clients on a wide variety of transactions in the M&A space, including management buyouts, management buy-ins and sales.
