Our corporate and banking teams are celebrating after being announced as finalists with six entries across four categories at the prestigious Insider Midlands Dealmakers Awards 2023.

The team has been named as finalists for the highly coveted Corporate Law Firm of the Year award, while senior associate Alison Davidson-Cox has received an individual recognition in the Emerging Dealmaker of the Year category. The Midlands team has also been nominated for its work on four deals within the region.

Our contribution to the SME sector has also been recognised with two nominations received for the SME Deal of the Year category; the sale of Nowcomm to 4Net and MBO of Logik Logistics International. 

The team has also received an acknowledgement for their involvement in regional deals with two nominations for the ‘Deal of the Year’ award; NorthEdge investment into Friend MTS and the sale of Pirtek to Franchise Brands.

Tom Rush, partner and head of corporate for the West Midlands, said: “Being shortlisted for six entries for these prestigious dealmakers’ awards is a really impressive achievement. This demonstrates the strength, expertise and wide-ranging capabilities our corporate and banking teams have to offer. Everyone involved should be really proud to receive this recognition.

“As well as successfully completing large corporate deals, we have also been recognised for our continuous support to the SME sector, which is vitally important for encouraging and aiding growth across the Midlands region.” 

All of the finalists for the Insider Dealmakers Awards were selected by an independent judging panel and winners will be announced during the awards dinner to be held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on Thursday 14 September 2023.
