Solicitors Matthew Arnold & Baldwin of Station Road, Watford, was shortlisted for Corporate Law Firm of the Year at last week’s Dealmakers Awards for the Central & East of England region.

The awards, which are designed to recognise the achievements of individuals and firms whose "skill, creativity and sheer determination have stood out over the last year", celebrate the best in the legal industry.

MAB partner Mark Archer said: "We are over the moon to have received this recognition for our Corporate team.

"As first time nominees, it was particularly important to us and illustrates our ambition to continue to grow our practice and offer an exemplary client experience. While we are of course delighted with our own success at the awards, we are equally delighted for Solution Corporate Finance who, along with ourselves, advised on the sale of Giga Group, which was nominated for Deal of the Year."

Matthew Arnold & Baldwin is regarded as one of the leading regional commercial law firms in the South East.

Mills & Reeve were the overall winners for the Central & East of England.
