Awards success for Cripps
Leading law firm Cripps, incorporating Pemberton Greenish, has been named ‘Corporate Law Firm of 2019’ at one of the South East’s most prestigious business awards.
The South East Dealmakers Awards, run by Insider Media, celebrate the achievements of the region’s top corporate finance firms, lawyers, banks, private equity houses and individuals and was attended by over 500 people.
James Beatton, Head of the Corporate Group at Cripps, said: “We are thrilled to be named as the leading Corporate Law Firm in the South East. The team has had a really strong 12 months working with clients across the region on more than 150 deals with a combined value of around £2 billion, two of which were also shortlisted for awards at this event.”
Award winners are chosen by an independent panel of expert judges in a meeting chaired by Insider Media’s regional business editor Philip Cunliffe.
Gavin Tyler, Managing Partner at Cripps, added: “This is a fantastic accolade and I’m delighted that the team has been recognised in this way. Our corporate offering has always been extremely strong, and awards like this further reinforce our position as a leading law firm, not just in Kent, but in the whole of the South East.”
Cripps and Pemberton Greenish announced the completion of their merger on 1 December 2018. The firm has offices in Tunbridge Wells, London and Kings Hill.
