Clarendons selected as finalist for Commercial Team of the Year

Clarendon Lawyers is thrilled to announce that it has been named as a finalist for the prestigious Lawyers Weekly, Australian Law Awards 2019 Commercial Team of the Year. 

The Australian Law Awards recognise Australia’s leading lawyers in the industry. The Commercial Team of the Year category acknowledges that teams that collaborate effectively meet the urgent needs of their clients and are more likely to be thought of as leaders in their fields of practice.

Clarendons has acted on an impressive range of successful transactions in FY2019. Although a ‘boutique’ firm in size, with six corporate partners and a further eighteen lawyers, the firm advised on over 40 successful M&A and ECM mid-market transactions in the past 12 months, with an aggregate deal value in excess of $1.1 billion. Clarendons was also listed as number 14 in the Mergermarket ‘Australasia league table by deal count’ for Q1 2019, an outstanding result for the firm. 

Managing Director, Tony Symons, expressed his delight that Clarendons had been recognised as a finalist for Australian Commercial Team of the Year.

“Being named a finalist for Commercial Team of the Year is a fabulous result for the firm. It is great recognition for the volume and quality of deals that we have done in 2019. We are uniquely positioned in M&A and ECM in Australia as a specialist firm and are dedicated to providing outstanding support to our clients in these practice areas.”
