DLA Piper receives Listed Company Award at IFT event in London

DLA Piper’s UK restructuring team has been named as the winner of the Listed Company Award at the IFT Turnaround and Transformation Awards, held on 26 November in London.

The firm received the award in recognition of its role on the successful rescue of Hearts of Midlothian Football Club. It involved the takeover of the listed football club out of administration by a special-purpose vehicle, owned by Scottish businesswoman Ann Budge.

Restructuring partners Richard Obank and Graeme Henry acted on the deal, and collected the award during the ceremony.
