Yorkshire law firm Keebles LLP has been named the Corporate Law Firm of the Year for the fourth year running at the 2020 Sheffield City Region Dealmakers’ Awards, as well as winning two other categories.
The Corporate Law Firm of the Year award has recognised Keebles’ corporate team for advising on more than 35 deals across the 2019/20 financial year.
The judging panel noted the rapid expansion of the firm’s corporate client base across a wide number of industries including advanced manufacturing, technology, healthcare and hospitality.
Keebles completed a hat-trick by also winning the £10m+ Deal of the Year for advising on the Investment in SCX Special Projects by Elysian Capital, and the Mid-Market Deal of the Year category for the management buyout of Nationwide Stainless, both of which reflect the scale and complexity of deals which Keebles is accustomed to advising on.
The Sheffield City Region Dealmakers Awards recognise the dealmakers who have helped shape businesses for sale, maximised values within companies and in the process created wealth and supported economic growth. The 2020 awards were announced online after last year’s event was cancelled.
Partner and Head of Corporate Matt Ainsworth said: “I am extremely proud that we have been named Corporate Law Firm of the Year for the fourth year in a row, and to have extended this with two further awards recognises the breadth and quality of the work that we do.
“Achieving all of this is a credit to the whole team. I would like to thank all of them for their hard work in continuing to provide our clients with the very best service. To have achieved this wide-ranging and consistent recognition against such stiff competition is a fantastic achievement.”
