Simcocks has won the prestigious title of ‘Dispute Resolution Law Firm of the Year – Isle of Man’ following a recent shortlist nomination for the 2017 Corporate Intl Magazine Global Awards.
The awards commemorate those who have been successful over the past 12 months and who have shown excellence not only in expertise but in service. As Corporate INTL magazine is read by business leaders, investors and advisers globally it’s a huge accolade for those firms that are awarded as winners in their specific categories.
The shortlisted firms are carefully scrutinised before being reviewed by an independent awards panel in each country with the eventual winners chosen by that independent panel.
Based in Ridgeway Street, Douglas, Simcocks provides an extensive range of legal services broadly grouped into the areas of dispute resolution, corporate and commercial and private client.
The Dispute Resolution Isle of Man team are thrilled to have won the award, which follows their previous win of the ‘Dispute Resolution Law Firm of the Year’ award from the Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards in 2015.
Independent researchers from The Legal 500 have also praised Simcocks for providing a “real breadth of litigation services” as well as “tactical strength” and “business-orientated advice”. There are very few significant civil litigation matters dealt with on the Isle of Man that Simcocks’ Dispute Resolution team is not involved in and their track record of achievement in high-stakes disputes, its technical expertise and tactical skills generate many complex referrals.
Director and Head of the Department, Christopher Arrowsmith said: “The Corporate Intl Magazine Global Awards promote leading firms in their chosen specialisms throughout the world. It is an honour for the Dispute Resolution team to have won and I am pleased to see continued recognition of our technical expertise and level of service through independent awarding bodies.”
The Department specialises in international corporate and commercial litigation and has considerable experience in complex cross-jurisdictional disputes with emphasis on trust-related and shareholder disputes, emergency injunctive and discovery remedies, together with judicial review applications.
