LAWFUEL – The Law Firm Newswire – Trowers & Hamlins fought off stiff competition from rivals Ashurst, Eversheds, Linklaters and Simmons & Simmons to win what is seen as the most glittering prize at the legal profession’s equivalent of the Oscars.
The award was made in recognition of the strengths of Trowers & Hamlins’ Corporate, Middle East, Real Estate and Social Housing practices.
The judges described Trowers & Hamlins’ performance in the Middle East as ‘barnstorming’, its finance practice as a ‘hidden jewel’ and its social housing practice as having had a ‘stellar performance’.
Trowers & Hamlins’ Middle East practice has built on its outstanding strengths in real estate, major projects and construction to become one of the regions leaders in corporate and corporate finance work and advising fund management companies. Their International Telecoms team has rapidly established itself as the leading advisers on telecoms M&A deals across the Middle East and North Africa.
The award ceremony was held at Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on June 26.
Over the last five years Trowers & Hamlins has moved from being the 54th largest firm in the UK to the 42nd , increasing their turnover by 111% over the period to £68.1m. What makes their expansion particularly noteworthy is that they have managed it all by organic growth, without the need to takeover or merge with any other firms.
