Birketts’ Corporate team shortlisted for five Dealmakers Awards


Birketts has once again been nominated at the Insider Media Central & East Dealmakers Awards, this time in five categories (twice in the Deal of the Year (Sub £10m) category).

 It is up for:

The annual awards recognise excellence across the region's corporate finance firms, banks, funders and private equity houses. Shortlisted parties were chosen through a peer voting process.

Birketts’ Partner and Head of Corporate, Adrian Seagers, said: “Despite the ongoing disruption to businesses caused by the coronavirus pandemic the team has been exceptionally busy. To be shortlisted in so many categories is deserved recognition of the tireless work of my colleagues throughout the last 12 months and reflects the reputation that the team has built for the quality of our work and our approach to client service.”

The winners of all the awards will be unveiled at the annual Central & East Dealmakers Awards Dinner, which will be taking place at Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Milton Keynes on 18 November 2021.
