Corporate Law Firm of the Year hat-trick for Keebles at Dealmakers’ Awards
We are delighted to have been named the Corporate Law Firm of the Year for the third year running, as well as winning three other categories at the Sheffield City Region Dealmakers’ Awards.
The Corporate Law Firm of the Year award has recognised Keebles for advising on many of the region’s high-profile deals in the qualifying period and were shortlisted thirteen times at this year’s event.
The judging panel noted the team as “excellent” and particularly praised the leadership of Partner and Head of Corporate, Matt Ainsworth.
Matt said: “I am pleased and extremely proud that we have been named the best Corporate Law Firm of the Year for the third year in a row.
“It is a credit to the whole team. We take great pride in going the extra mile for our clients, getting the results they need and ensuring we always go above and beyond. To have won four awards at such a prestigious ceremony is a fantastic achievement.”
As well as Corporate Law Firm of the Year, we won the Deal of the Year award (up to £2.5m) for the management buyout of Harvest Healthcare.
We also secured the top spot for the Mid-Market Deal of the Year (between £2.5m and £10m) for advising HSBC on its funding package to support acquisitions by Coppergreen Developments. We also won the Deal of the Year (£10m+) for advising on the sale of ALTEK Group to Harsco Corporation.
The awards ceremony took place on June 6 at the Mercure St Paul’s Hotel in Sheffield.
