A LAW firm in Huddersfield has won a national business award.
Eaton Smith, based at High Street, was selected by ACQ Finance magazine as one of the firms making the greatest impact in their industry in the UK during 2008/9.
An independent poll of business professionals, contributors, industry peers and the magazine’s in-house panel named the firm winner of the UK’s regional law firm of the year after examining the deals which the firm’s business services team had advised on over the past 12 months.
ACQ Finance has a readership throughout the UK and beyond and reports on transactions and topical commercial issues.
Eaton Smith partner Alison Palmer said: “The aim of the awards is to identify and recognise excellence in deal making.
“In terms of strength and experience, we are of a size that rivals large commercial teams based in the major cities – but due to our out-of-city location, we can provide specialised advice on local, national and international transactions at a very reasonable cost.
“We are very proud of our team, and to have been recognised in this way.”
