Leading national law firm Blake Morgan, which has a nine strong corporate team in Cardiff, has been shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Legal Team of the Year’ award.
The annual awards recognise and celebrate excellence in deal making across Wales. They attract entries from banks, private equity houses, business advisors and other intermediaries who have played a key role in supporting the growth of Welsh businesses. The awards will celebrate a stellar year for the Welsh dealmaking community, with an increase in acquisitions, buyouts, funding deals and flotations.
Impressively, the firm is also represented in each of the three ‘Deal of the Year’ categories, having advised on the sale of Brighter Foods (small business deal), the sale of Orbis Care (venture capital deal) and the management buy-out of Bluestone (deal of the year).
Commenting on the shortlisting, corporate partner, Rob Cherry, said:
“Our corporate team in Cardiff is really making their mark in the deals community, but without our clients we wouldn’t be here. We are privileged to work with some of the most successful and growing businesses in Wales and proud of the lifetime relationships we have built with them. I would also like to congratulate Brighter Food, Orbis Care and Bluestone on their nominations and wish them every success on the night.”
Blake Morgan has an enviable reputation for building lasting relationships with businesses in the region. The corporate team is acknowledged within the legal industry and in the independent legal directories, for providing a first-class level of service across a wide range of transactions including mergers, acquisitions, sales, private equity and joint ventures.
This year’s winners will be named at the awards dinner at the Marriott Hotel, Cardiff, on the evening of Thursday 28 September 2017.
