Bedell Cristin has been named ‘International Law Firm of the Year – EMEA’ in the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2013.
Anthony Dessain, senior partner at Bedell Cristin, was presented with the Award by broadcaster Andrew Neil at a black tie event in London on Thursday 16th May. The event was attended by nearly 400 leading lawyers, wealth managers and private client advisers.
Now firmly established in the wealth calendar having been launched seven years ago, the Awards are designed to recognise the achievements of the private wealth industry during the past year. Winners were selected by an independent panel of leading practitioners, who were looking for evidence of innovation, expertise, achievement and high levels of service, and through an online survey.
Bedell Group Managing Partner Richard Gerwat said:
"This award recongises our continuing commitment to developing our services to achieve successful long term relationships with our clients. Over many years, we have developed a reputation for service excellence and continue to provide client-led services with deep industry knowledge. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the clients and intermediaries who voted for us during the award process.”
