Debevoise & Plimpton London office shortlisted in British Legal Awards
The London office of Debevoise & Plimpton has been shortlisted in the British Legal Awards 2013 in the London Office of the Year category.
The annual awards, hosted by Legal Week, celebrate achievement, excellence and innovation in the profession. The London Office of the Year category recognises non-UK-headquartered firms that have made significant progress in the last 12–18 months.
The shortlisting comes after a successful year for Debevoise’s London office, during which it acted on matters such as Polyus Gold’s $9bn (£6bn) premium listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), the $1.4bn purchase of the investment portfolio of Conversus Capital by HarbourVest Partners and representation of Vincent Tchenguiz in relation to the high-profile Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigation.
In 2013, Debevoise also welcomed senior litigator Kevin Lloyd as a new partner in its London office.
