Michelmores shortlisted in the Insider South West Dealmakers Awards

Michelmores has been shortlisted in two categories at this year's Insider South West Dealmakers Awards.

The UK law Firm has been recognised in the Large Deal of the Year (more than £25m) category for its work on the sale of the South West based Red Paddle Co. The deal was finalised in November 2021 with Corporate Partner Henry Taylor leading a multi-sector team.

Michelmores has also been shortlisted for Corporate Law Firm of the Year – a title it won for the third time at last year's Insider South West Dealmaker Awards.

Of the shortlisting, Senior Partner Richard Cobb said:

"We are delighted to once again be recognised at this year's Dealmaker Awards. The awards highlight the excellent and exciting work being done by professional services firms across the region and we look forward to celebrating our shortlisting with our peers at the ceremony in Bristol. The South West continues to be a powerhouse when it comes to supporting highly valuable and innovative deals for companies and organisations across the region, the UK and beyond."

Of the awards, Mike Ribbeck, editor of South West Business Insider, said:

"The awards are a celebration of all the hard work that has been done in the deal making community over the last year.

"This year our judging panel commented on both the quality and the quantity of the entries in many of the categories. The fact we had so many quality entries meant for a challenging discussion and some tough decisions had to be made."
