Andrew Northage shortlisted for ‘best regulatory lawyer of the year’ award

Walker Morris regulatory partner Andrew Northage has been shortlisted for the ‘Best Regulatory Lawyer of the Year’ award in the eminent Thomson Reuters 10th Annual Compliance Awards.

These well-established, coveted awards honour the best-practice, leadership and commitment to the compliance industry. The shortlist is complied from a rigorous process involving nominations, research and then assessment by the judging panel.

Andrew advises a wide range of City, national and international businesses on regulatory issues, including financial services regulation, fraud and corruption, anti-money laundering, consumer protection, health and safety, freedom of information and data protection, environmental prosecutions and Coroner’s inquests.

Jeanette Burgess, Head of the Regulatory & Compliance Team at Walker Morris said:

“We are delighted Andrew has been recognised in the awards.  They are a great accolade which reflects the specialist expertise and national reputation that Andrew has achieved. 

“In line with the wider strategy of Walker Morris, over the last few years we’ve invested in specialist expertise and developed tailored legal service offerings.  As such, we feel that we are now one of the largest Regulatory teams of its kind outside London.  It’s a strategy which our clients have appreciated and Andrew is a good example of the specialist expertise of the Team.   Having previously been an investigatory lawyer and prosecutor for the Serious Fraud Office, Andrew has the unusual perspective of both ‘gamekeeper and poacher’ which clients certainly value, particularly on enforcement and prosecution cases and when conducting internal investigations.”

The awards will be presented on 19th November at the Dorchester Hotel, London.
