Shepherd and Wedderburn named Regional/Offshore Firm of the Year
Shepherd and Wedderburn has been named Regional/Offshore Firm of the Year at the 23rd Legal Business Awards run by Legal Business magazine.
The Regional/Offshore award recognises the achievements of the UK-based regional or offshore firm (with headquarters outside London) that has made the most significant progress over the past year in advancing its strategy.
The key factors taken into account are evidence of effective leadership, impressive financial performance and increased market share.
The judges’ decision was informed by research carried out by Legal Business, Legal 500 and independent legal experts into the quality of legal services, sustained growth and new business wins.
Managing partner Andrew Blain said: “We are honoured to have received this award, which recognises our achievements as an independent law firm delivering high quality services to our clients.
“I would like to congratulate the other firms shortlisted in this category, thank our clients for continuing to put their trust in us, and say how proud I am of my colleagues across the business for the remarkable resilience, commitment and adaptability they have shown, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The quality of our lawyers and the depth of our expertise across all our practice areas and sector groups positions us well to grow our business as we emerge from the pandemic. We will continue to look to invest in talent and technology and to seize the opportunities that present themselves this year, with a particular focus on our market-leading clean energy practice, which is working with clients to help accelerate a green recovery.”
