In highlighting the shortlisted firms, the Legal 500 says:
Provenio Litigation LLP is a specialist business litigation firm founded in Liverpool in 2019 by an experienced team which spun off from DLA Piper - it now ranks in the top tier and is regarded as ‘a stand-out player outside of London’.
The Legal 500 Northern Powerhouse Awards recognise the lawyers, law firms and in-house legal departments setting the pace in the region, providing a platform to celebrate their achievements over the last 18 months.
The shortlists and winners have been determined based on The Legal 500's market leading independent research for the annual UK Solicitors Guide.
Commenting on Provenio's nominations, Mark Goodwin, who is ranked in the Legal 500’s Hall of Fame, said:
“We are delighted to be shortlisted in the Legal 500’s Northern Powerhouse Awards.
“When we launched the firm in 2019, our vision was to create the premier business litigation boutique outside London, using a team that all formerly worked together at DLA Piper in Liverpool.
“We have successfully implemented this strategy by attracting high value instructions, breaking into new areas of litigation, growing the business through a ground-breaking £50 million litigation funding agreement and investing in the future of the firm through the launch of a new graduate solicitor apprenticeship programme."
Added Mark: "I would particularly like to congratulate Emma Charnock who has been recently made a Partner at the firm and fully deserves this recognition."
