London-based international law firm, Mackrell.Solicitors, has been shortlisted for this year’s Lexis Nexis Legal Awards for its work around the world.
The firm is a founding member of one of the world’s top legal networks, Mackrell International – giving it access to more than 60 jurisdictions worldwide and more than 4,500 lawyers.
This has allowed it to tap into new areas of law and markets, which was recognised by the judges at the Lexis Nexis Legal Awards when selecting the firm for the International Team of the Year Award.
As well as the firm’s close connection with Mackrell International, the team of judges also reviewed Mackrell.Solicitors’ work assisting clients with family law and private clients matters, as well as the corporate and commercial matters that the firm assisted with.
Amongst these were the firm’s assistance in the UK’s burgeoning CBD and cannabis sectors, where it has helped to facilitate a number of international deals, including the high-profile purchase of UK skincare brand This Works by Canadian cannabis giant Canopy Growth.
Cannabis Law is just one area where the firm is ahead of the curve. It is also assisting businesses and individual investors in the Cryptoasset and Blockchain industries and helping sporting professionals with their sports law services.
Mackrell.Solicitors is also enjoying considerable growth in the Middle East, where its teams have visited the UAE regularly, particularly Dubai, to assist a wide-range of clients, including British expats with complex family law matters.
As part of the ongoing development of its international services, the firm is due to launch a new India Desk in January, which will assist with the growing number of queries that it is receiving from the country.
This will provide the full-service experience that clients currently enjoy, but from a dedicated team of professionals with experience of working with businesses and individuals in India.
Nigel Rowley, Managing Partner at Mackrell.Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to be recognised for our international work over the last few years by such a prestigious awards organisation.
“Our entire team have worked so hard to expand upon our previous international expertise and our connection to Mackrell International means that we have a truly global reach.
“We are all really looking forward to finding out whether we have been named International Team of the Year at Lexis Nexis Legal Awards.”
The firm will find out whether it has won an award at a ceremony due to take place on Wednesday 11 March at the Sheraton Grand, Park Lane, London.
