September 2022: Edwards Gibson sponsor 'Real Estate Team of the Year' Award at the 2022 Legal Business Awards

September 2022

A fantastic evening at the Legal Business Awards last night and warmest congratulations to Herbert Smith Freehills who scooped the Real Estate Team of the Year Award sponsored by Edwards Gibson. 

See below our real estate heavy table – by far the most fun of the evening!

Ali Crosthwaite (Simmons & Simmons)
Legal celebrity James Knox (DLA Piper) – himself sometime winner of this very award
Lorraine Reader (DLA Piper)
Nicholas Bolter (Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP)
Sloane Poulton (Edwards Gibson)
Kirsty Corkum (Fladgate LLP)
Laurence Rogers (Wedlake Bell) – winner on the night of the prestigious Legal Business/Edwards Gibson “Case of Nyetimber Award 2022” for guessing the most winners at the ceremony
Mark Coates (Edwards Gibson)
Zoe Fatchen (Addleshaw Goddard)
Scott Gibson (Edwards Gibson) who somehow managed to hold the entire ceremony up by failing to make it to the stage on time to present the award to Herbert Smith Freehills.

Still we’re told (by Scott) that his Usain Bolt sprint around the back of the auditorium, followed by his Norman Wisdom style stumble onto the stage and breathless presentation was all part of the show, and thoroughly rehearsed with Louise Minchin beforehand for comic effect.
