Walker Morris has been shortlisted for the 2014 Yorkshire Legal – Corporate and Commercial Award.

Walker Morris is one of three firms shortlisted for the award in recognition of the Team’s achievement in corporate finance and commitment to clients over the last 12 months.

John Hamer, Head of Corporate at Walker Morris commented:
“Following a strong 2013 for the Team, activity in the wider deals market has increased in 2014.  Not only have we been able to act on some of the region’s largest M&A deals but our Equity Capital Markets expertise has attracted this specialist work into the region.  It is pleasing to be shortlisted for this award which is recognition for the hard work and commitment of all the Team.”

John Hamer was the recipient of the both the ‘Corporate Lawyer of the Year Award’ and also the coveted ‘Dealmaker of the Year Award’ at Yorkshire Business Insider’s Dealmaker Awards last year.  And earlier this year corporate partner Debbie Jackson was listed in The Lawyer’s ‘Hot 100’ recognising her as one of the top 100 UK lawyers across all disciplines.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held at New Dock Hall on Wednesday 16th October.
