Many congratulations to TupperS Law, which won “Competition Team of the Year” at last night’s British Legal Awards, hosted by Legal Week.
The award was in recognition of their work with us in our David and Goliath victory over the Law Society in the Competition Appeal Tribunal.
Stephen Tupper took Bernard George of Socrates on stage with him to collect the award, along with Madeleine Matos of Economic Insight who also worked on the case. The award was presented by actress Sally Phillips.
One must be prepared for life to take you in strange directions. However we never expected to be part of a legal team that won a competition law award, and certainly not ahead of firms like Allen & Overy and Slaughter and May. I bet they did not expect it either.
