Russell McVeagh would like to congratulate all the finalists and winners at the 2016 New Zealand Law Awards, which was held at the Langham Hotel in Auckland last night. The annual ceremony had a record number in attendance, with hundreds of legal professionals from around the country, dressed to impress, and full of jubilation.
The firm’s Restructuring and Insolvency Team picked up the award for Capital Markets Deal of the Year and New Zealand Deal of the Year, for its work on Solid Energy's voluntary administration.
Russell McVeagh would like to extend congratulations to all clients who were among those shortlisted for awards, and also the winners on the night. A special mention to the ANZ Legal Team, who took home the Russell McVeagh In-house Team of the Year award, and Russell McVeagh alumni Alex Mamo (now in-house counsel at Fonterra), who won the award for Young In-house Lawyer of the Year.
The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all, a special thanks to all involved in organising the fantastic event.
