Freeths Birmingham corporate team celebrated success last night at the Insider's Midlands Dealmakers Awards 2022.

Lee Clifford, Corporate Partner and Head of Private Equity, won corporate lawyer of the year. He was described by judges as “a lawyer that never disappoints, extremely capable on transactions and great with clients”. This was a new category to this year's awards and Lee is the first ever recipient of the award.

Commenting on the accolades, Lee Clifford said: “This is a tremendous result for the Freeths Birmingham corporate team.
