Sidley's London office won the "Private Equity Team of the Year" award at the 2021 Legal Business Awards. The firm was also honored as "Highly Commended" in the Restructuring Team of the Year category. The prestigious Legal Business Awards celebrates the very best in the legal profession.
The Private Equity Team of the Year award comes as recognition for the team's stellar performance across 2020/2021, taking a multi-disciplinary approach to shepherding clients through fast-paced competitive auctions and the challenges of COVID-19, including waves of government measures, liquidity needs, and changes to capital structure.
On the Restructuring front, Sidley was recognized for the rapid development of its practice in London, and in particular for its representation of Travelex, the world's largest foreign exchange bureau, on the completion of its financial and operational restructuring.
The 23rd edition of the annual awards recognized firms, alternative legal services providers, in-house teams, and chambers across 25 categories.
