Corporate Lawyer of the Year

Corporate Lawyer of the Year Award completes hat trick for Swinburne Maddison LLP


The North East Dealmakers Awards are a night to recognise the very best of the region’s deal making community and at this year’s dinner, held on Thursday 3rd September 2015 at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel, we were delighted to see Partner, Martyn Tennant, walk away with the much-coveted “Corporate Lawyer of the Year” award.

This is the second award which Martyn has received in less than three months, having scooped the “Young Lawyer of the Year” award at the Northern Law Awards in June. The win is further recognition of the tremendous work Martyn continues to deliver for his clients and the high esteem in which he is held by his professional peers across the North East.   

Speaking of this latest win, Martyn said, “The shortlisted finalists in this category were all lawyers for whom I have the greatest respect and I was absolutely thrilled to be named Corporate Lawyer of the Year ahead of that calibre of individuals.  I am immensely grateful to everyone who has shown their support by voting for me in this category.  Having strong relationships with my clients and professional contacts is of the utmost importance to me and forms the basis of every deal I work on.  This award is testament to those relationships.” 

Martyn’s recent run of success also completes a hat-trick of award wins for the firm over the last 12 months, with solicitor Allan Devine being accredited with “Lawyer of the Year” status at the Newcastle Law Society Annual Awards dinner in November last year.  With the continued growth of the firm and new members of staff being recruited across all departments, we look forward to seeing what successes the next 12 months might bring.
