Sidley has been named winner in the highly prestigious "Innovation in rescue, restructuring and recovery (Law firm)" category at the 2021 FT Innovative Lawyers Awards Europe. A Sidley team - led by partners and co‐heads of Sidley’s London Restructuring team Jifree Cader and Mark Knight, and supported by lead associate Dhevine Chandrapala - was recognized for its representation of Travelex, the world’s largest foreign exchange bureau, on the completion of its financial and operational restructuring. The full Sidley team comprised over 100 lawyers working across 11 different offices. The team was praised for "helping Travelex recover from the twin crises of a data security breach and COVID travel bans."
The awards, hosted by the Financial Times and RSG Consulting ‐ its research partner ‐ highlight the best law firms and in‐house legal teams driving innovation in the legal sector in Europe.
