Regional law firm Napthens is celebrating after being highly commended at one of the region’s top business awards.

The firm was highly commended in the Law Firm of the Year category at the Insider North West Dealmakers awards in Manchester on October 20th – the biggest event in the region’s corporate finance calendar – with the top spot taken by Addleshaw Goddard.

Other categories included Deal of the Year, Banking Team of the Year and International Deal of the Year.

Keith Melling, head of Corporate at Napthens, said: “This is an outstanding achievement for the team and one they’ve worked hard to achieve. Being shortlisted and now highly commended for this award is recognition that our corporate team stands shoulder to shoulder with any top city law firm.

The business community in the North West is a vibrant one and this reflects the quality of the deals being done outside the large cities.”
