Acuity wins Law Firm of the Year 2019
Acuity Legal were at the iconic Guildhall in London yesterday evening (6 February) to receive its award for Law Firm of the Year (Wales) at The Legal 500 Awards 2019.
Designed to recognise and reward the cream of the UK’s legal profession, the awards are presented to elite legal practitioners based on the in-depth research into the UK legal market conducted by The Legal 500.
The prestigious award follows the news that two of Acuity’s elite partners have been selected for The Legal 500 Hall of Fame, which highlights individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence. Jonathan Geen and Paul Lowe have both reached this milestone as worthy individuals at the pinnacle of their profession.
At the exclusive networking reception for the winners, managing partner Rachelle Sellek said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have won Law Firm of the Year in the Wales category. This is a hugely exciting time in the firm’s growth and development, so this win marks a significant milestone for our business, with our clients and our people at the heart of it.”
Acuity has doubled in size in recent years and last year advised on over 100 UK-based transactions with an aggregate value of over £1.5 billion. Rated by the independent legal directories as a top tier firm for corporate transactions and commercial property work, its real estate team was named property law firm of the year by Insider in June 2018 for an unprecedented three years in succession, and its corporate team scooped the coveted title of legal team of the year in September 2018.
