A Cumbrian law firm has won an award for its expertise in advising the County’s entrepreneurs on corporate mergers and acquisitions.
Burnetts’ Corporate Law team has been recognised with an M&A Award by the publishers of Acquisition International Magazine. The awards recognise investors, advisers and service providers throughout the world for their knowledge and capability in this specialised field.
The four-strong Corporate Law team, which includes partners John Noctor, Vaughan Jones and Sam Lyon and solicitor Aimee Taylor, is the only specialist team in Cumbria to be recognised with such an award.
Given solely on merit, the awards aim to commend the most deserving M&A practitioners for their outstanding work over the last 12 months and to recognise leaders in their respective fields.
Head of Business Services, John Noctor said, “The last few years have undoubtedly been difficult for mergers and acquisitions, but despite the market turbulence and challenging economic conditions around the world, we have been able to support some of the region’s leading businesses to achieve their ambitions for growth. We are delighted to be recognised alongside some of the UK’s largest legal and accountancy firms. I am constantly flying the flag for Cumbrian businesses and I hope this is further proof that aspirational businesses do not need to go outside the County to find high-quality and expert legal advice.”
Kathryn Turner, Chief Co-Ordinator of the 2013 M&A Awards said, “The M&A Awards celebrate excellence and commemorate the achievements and hard-work of all those involved in seeing a deal through to completion. The tireless efforts of our 2013 M&A Awards winners have ensured that successful deal-making continues.”
