We’re delighted that Shakespeare Martineau has won the Energy & Natural Resources - UK Law Firm of the Year award at this year’s The Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards.

These annual awards recognise the achievements of law firms, lawyers, barristers and those connected to the legal world with a proven track record in delivering results for their clients over the past 12 months.

Shakespeare Martineau were named outright 2016 winners in the category of Energy & Natural Resources UK Law Firm of the Year, with judges highlighting their expertise in advising on key energy industry contracts and codes, and sector specific regulatory issues, in what is a rapidly changing and high profile sector.  Winners of each category were selected via a thorough and extensive third-party nomination process facilitated by the publication.

Andrew Whitehead, senior partner at Shakespeare Martineau and head of the firm’s energy team, said: “This recognition of the achievements of our energy practice is especially pleasing, as energy is one of our chosen sector specialisms where we strive as a firm to be amongst the very best in the profession.  This award is testament to the hard work and expertise of many lawyers and support teams across Shakespeare Martineau, working with our energy clients day in and day out to give the very best service we can.”

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
