Browne Jacobson named finalist at Insider East Midlands Dealmakers Awards

27 April 2021

Browne Jacobson’s corporate finance team has been shortlisted for a host of accolades at this year’s upcoming East Midlands Dealmakers Awards which takes place on 29 September.

The firm has been nominated for the coveted ‘Corporate Law Firm of the Year’ award and Sandra Wong, senior associate at the firm has also been shortlisted in the ‘Emerging Dealmaker of the Year’ category – the only lawyer to be named in this category.

The team have been named in the ‘Deal of the Year’ (over £10m) category for their work on the sale of Addo Food from LDC and Fullbrook Thorpe by PAI Partners. This transaction is considered one of 2020’s most high-profile deals in the Midlands region and across the UK food sector. In addition, they have also been named advisors in the ‘Deal of the Year’ (under £10m) category for their work on the shortlisted £8m growth capital investment in UK flooring by BGF.

The awards ceremony which takes place at the Nottingham Belfry, is one of the biggest dates in the region’s corporate finance calendar and showcases the achievements of some of the Midlands’ finest corporate dealmakers.

Richard Cox, partner and head of corporate at Browne Jacobson commented:

“I am delighted that the team have again been recognised for delivering high quality legal advice on a host of key transactions in what is one of the most challenging periods that many businesses have faced.

“I also want to congratulate Sandra for her nomination. She has had a very strong year, advising on some of our most high-profile transactions. She is always working to support clients and identify opportunities for them in the deals market.

“These shortlisting’s are testament to the hard work, drive and depth of specialist sector expertise of our team and showcase the strength and resilience of the dealmaking market and those who operate in it. I wish all the other finalists the best of luck on the night.”
