Ward Hadaway also won Employment Team of the Year at the awards.
Ward Hadaway’s double win at the Northern Law Awards 2017 reinforces the firm’s place
as a leading adviser to the region’s business community.
The Top 100 UK law firm was named Corporate and Commercial Team of the Year and Employment Team of the Year at the prestigious awards held at the NewcastleGateshead Hilton.
For Ward Hadaway Managing Partner Jamie Martin, the double victory is further evidence of the firm’s position as a key partner for North East companies and a successful business in its own right.
Jamie said: “It is always gratifying to win such awards, not only because they recognise the hard work, dedication and considerable skill of the teams involved, but also because of what they say about our firm.
“As one of the largest independent law firms in the North East, we are dedicated to helping businesses and organisations to achieve their aspirations and to playing our part in helping to drive growth.
“We have worked hard to establish an enviable reputation for meeting companies’ needs in a commercial way that helps to build and protect their businesses.
“Both of our award-winning teams from this year’s Northern Law Awards are proof positive of that – the work which they carry out for a wide range of clients plays an important part not just in those businesses but to the wider North East economy.”
The corporate team, one of the largest pure transaction corporate finance teams in the North East, covers all types of corporate transactions, with specialists in private equity and venture capital investments, acquisitions and disposals, and IPOs.
The employment team is again one of the largest of its kind in the North. It is a multi-disciplined team of Solicitors and Human Resources professionals who work together to ensure their clients receive commercial, practical and pragmatic advice and support.
Jamie Martin concluded: “The awards are richly deserved for these two outstanding teams who work hard to deliver the very best services to their clients.”
