Keystone Law has been nominated in The Legal 500 Awards 2018, for Firm of the Year, for its Licensing and Offshore activity.
Keystone’s Licensing team is one of only five firms to make the shortlist whilst the Offshore nomination, for the Isle of Man team, sits amongst a group of just six.
The Legal 500 UK Awards are unique to the legal industry and recognise each element of the profession equally, representing the very best law firms, chambers, silks, in-house lawyers, business leaders and general counsel operating within the UK market. The shortlist is based on those that have impressed their research team over the past 12 months for contributions to a particular business sector or practice area.
Meanwhile Keystone celebrated its most successful year to date in the Legal 500 directory and was acknowledged in a total of 21 practice areas with 54 lawyers individually highlighted, plus 7 gaining coveted Leading Lawyer status. Amongst those recognised was Keystone’s Licensing team with Legal 500 noting that the team recently advised on the licensing aspects of the £47 million Deptford Project Regeneration Scheme and assisted the board of trustees for the Tate Gallery with a new premises license for the Tate Modern following the completion of a £260m extension.
The Isle of Man team received exceptional reviews, achieving rankings in Corporate and Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Employment and Pensions. Director Gillian Christian, along with colleagues Ben Hughes and Charles Coleman also gained coveted Leading Individual status. One client noted that the firm provides “service equal to or better than the long-established Isle of Man law firms.”
The awards will take place in February 2018 at London’s Royal Exchange.
