Howard Kennedy has been named Insolvency Law Firm of the Year (Up to Three Insolvency Partners) at the Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency (TRI) Awards 2022.
This is the fourth time the firm has been shortlisted for the award, and the third time it has won, after winning in both 2020 and 2021.
This year's TRI Awards gave the industry the opportunity to reflect on the challenges faced, and the support businesses have offered to clients, during what has been an incredibly turbulent year. The win is a great result for the firm's Restructuring & Insolvency group, rewarding the efforts they have made to assist clients through times of economic uncertainty.
To impress the judges, the team had to show:
- the consistent provision of excellent legal and advisory services
- the use of innovative tools and procedures
- expertise in the highly technical laws that affect insolvency and restructuring
- contributions to the legal corporate insolvency and restructuring profession.
The submission also highlighted some of the high-profile matters the team has been involved with over the last year, including the restructuring of the Business Environment Group and advice to the Bankruptcy Trustees of TransAsia Airways.
As well as winning this award, the team was also shortlisted for Insolvency Team of the Year.
Vernon Dennis, Partner and Head of Restructuring and Insolvency, commented: "It is great to see the team's hard work and expertise has once again been acknowledged at the prestigious TRI Awards. This reflects our position at the cutting edge of case law as well as the dedication we have to providing our clients with outstanding legal services."
