The Law Society has this week announced MVF as a shortlist in its annual Excellence Awards.
The company’s in-house Legal team joins Specsavers, Which? and Amex EMEA among others as finalists in the Excellence In-House category.
Starting at MVF in 2013, MVF’s General Counsel and Director of Corporate Development Tom Worner has built up the capabilities of the team to cater for the needs of a growing company in a highly regulated sector.
Over the past few years MVF’s legal function has expanded to include M&A and compliance, now a team of professionals across multiple specialisms working together to provide support to MVF.
Tom commented: “I am so proud of the team for being shortlisted by the Law Society as one of the UK’s best in-house legal teams. Over the last year the team has really stepped beyond its general duties to lead MVF’s M&A strategy and transactions, and implement a GDPR awareness campaign to have a transformational impact on MVF’s market advantage and success.”
“From a team of one - me - in 2013 to a team of five today, the legal function has grown alongside the company to be in a position where we are well placed to navigate the current climate for our business, creating opportunities from challenges like GDPR and ePrivacy.”
The winners of The Law Society Excellence Awards will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday 17 October.
