We’re extremely proud to share that our General Counsel Tom Worner has been listed in 2020’s The Lawyer Hot 100!
The Lawyer Hot 100 recognises the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar. Whatever the year, everyone who is named in the Hot 100 has one thing in common: they are the lawyers of the moment. Featuring on this list shows that Tom is shaping the legal profession in the here and now.
MVF CEO Michael Teixeira says: "It's no surprise to me that Tom has been recognised as one of the top legal talents in the UK, as he has been a huge part of MVF's success.
“In his more than six years here, Tom has redefined the role of General Counsel; he has developed a market-leading compliance function that gives our global clients complete confidence in the customers we generate, he has overseen an ambitious M&A programme and given us exemplary governance and safeguarding processes by pioneering our Business Conduct Committee. The legal and compliance team are often the unsung heroes of businesses like ours, so I am delighted we can shine a spotlight on Tom's brilliant work through the Hot 100 list."
The Lawyer commented: “The concept of the ‘lawyer in the corner’ hardly applies to Tom Worner, a General Counsel who has found his career nirvana here at MVF by becoming a trusted adviser.”
Since joining us in 2013, Tom has handled a flurry of acquisitions aimed at broadening our portfolio across different markets. In the space of a single year, Tom and his team pulled through the purchase of online hearing information provider Everyday Hearing and marketing company Inspire Digital, after previously overseeing the acquisition of Startups.co.uk and Tech.co.
