International law firm Pinsent Masons has won three awards at the British Legal Awards 2017 taking home 'Team of the Year' for the TMT, Property and M&A (medium-sized deal) categories.

The firm was awarded:

  • TMT Team of the Year for its combination of sector insight and legal expertise in advising Starship Technologies, the developers of last-mile delivery robots, on their market entry strategy for the UK and Germany.
  • Property Team of the Year, as a result of advising Manchester City Council on the groundbreaking £1bn Northern Gateway deal with Far East Consortium, a project which has potential to deliver around 10,000 homes for Manchester.
  • M&A Team of the Year (medium-sized deal) for the firm's work advising Teva Pharmaceutical Industries on one of the largest and most complex divestment programmes ever required by the European Commission.

The judging panel, which was chaired by Edward Sparrow, of the City of London Law Society, featured a number of senior lawyers including GCs from companies such as EE, Lloyds Banking Group, BAE Systems, ASOS, Facebook, Vodafone, as well as Dame Janet Gaymer, chair of the House of Commons management board.

Richard Foley, Senior Partner at Pinsent Masons, says: "This is a fantastic achievement for the firm, across a range of teams, reflecting our strategic focus to be market leaders in our five global sectors. These awards recognise the truly landmark deals the firm is working on across borders and disciplines as we continue to provide the most innovative solutions for our clients. I would like to thank Legal Week and their panel of independent judges for recognising the firms' achievements."
