More than 550 industry professionals from across the country gathered at the Lancaster Hotel in London for the 2012 Insolvency & Rescue Awards hosted by TV personality and comedian Patrick Kielty.
Moon Beever won the Insolvency Law Firm of the Year (up to 10 partners) in an award which reflects the depth and the skills of our Insolvency team.
A panel of 15 leading experts from insolvency, regulatory and banking industries had been involved in the judging process. Commenting on the win, the judges said: “Punching well above its weight, this well-known and much-loved firm has continued to lead the way in the smaller firms’ category throughout the past 12 months.”
In our second award of the night, Frances Coulson was presented with the Sabin Award for Outstanding Contribution to the UK Rescue Culture. This award, named in memory of Nick Sabin, former chief executive of the Insolvency Practitioners Association, is given to individuals whose service and achievements go beyond the call of duty.
Louise Brittain, partner at Deloitte, presented the award to Frances on behalf of the judges. She highlighted Frances’s commitment to promoting the profession, lobbying to ensure that the tools of rescue are not damaged by government, and pursuing fraudulent directors to recover money for creditors.
