Woodsford sponsor Dispute Resolution Team of the Year at the 2015 Legal Business Awards

9 March 2015

 

We are delighted to have sponsored the Dispute Resolution Team of the Year award at this year’s Legal Business Awards.

 

The Legal Business awards are consistently favoured by the industry's leading lawyers as the most prestigious and highly respected awards on the legal calendar.  The 2015 event was the 18th annual ceremony.

 

The Dispute Resolution category featured the very best contentious lawyers in the country.  The teams shortlisted showed the tenacity, initiative and skill that ensured their clients remained one step ahead of their opponents.

 

Shortlist:

 

Eversheds

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

Hausfeld

Mishcon de Reya

Weil, Gotshal & Manges

White & Case

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr

 

The ceremony was held on 24th March at the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London. The award was won by Weil, Gotshal & Manges for their role in what the press described as 'one of the closest-wateched big business tax battels in the City'. Partner Jamie Maples and his team innovatively represented Littlewoods in obtaining a £1.25bn judgment for interest on overpaid VAT against HMRC.

 

Congratulations to all involved.

 

Our sponsorship of this prestigious award underpins our ongoing commitment to investment in litigation and arbitration funding globally.
