Browne Jacobson public sector lawyer wins top national award

7 January 2019

Craig Elder, a partner in the Government and Infrastructure Team at Browne Jacobson, has been named 'Public Sector: Individual of the Year (Outside London)' at the Legal 500 Awards 2019.

Craig, who is based in the firm’s Nottingham office, joined the firm in 2010 and specialises in advising public and private sector clients on major projects, procurements and commercial matters.

Recently, Craig has led on a number of ground-breaking client relationships which go beyond the traditional model of providing legal services. This has seen Browne Jacobson take on the role of legal partner to a number of public sector clients, including the London Boroughs of Croydon and Enfield.

Browne Jacobson’s Craig Elder, said:

“It is a real honour to win an award in a category that included so many respected practitioners from across the country. This is a real testament to the innovative approach and levels of service that we strive to deliver at Browne Jacobson, and particularly pleasing because it follows extensive feedback both from clients and peers.”

Peter Ware, head of the Government and Infrastructure Team at Browne Jacobson, added:

“The Legal 500 awards are amongst the most prestigious in the profession and this award is testament to Craig’s outstanding skills and expertise as a lawyer, his innovative approach to delivering legal services and solutions and commitment to exceptional client service at all times.”

Legal 500 is widely regarded as one of the most authoritative ranking guides to the legal profession. Each year researchers undertake in-depth research and carry out tthousands of interviews with clients and practitioners before ranking firms and individuals by practice area. Those firms and elite legal practitioners that have had an outstanding year are further shortlisted for the annual Legal 500 awards.

The winners will be presented with their awards at a special ceremony in London on 6 February.

Browne’s Jacobson’s 100-strong public sector team, which is ranked nationally by both Legal 500 and Chambers, provides a comprehensive range of legal services to over 200 local authorities, 50 NHS bodies, and over ten central government departments and bodies.
