International law firm Pinsent Masons has won the prestigious ‘Energy and Natural Resources Team of the Year’ category at the Legal Business Awards 2014. The ceremony was held in London on Thursday 13th February.
The ‘Energy and Natural Resources Team of the Year’ accolade is awarded to the Energy team which judges deem to have demonstrated 'real strength and commitment to clients in the energy and natural resources sector'. Legal Business states that 'the winner will have advised on a trailblazing matter that has significantly affected the market.'
