Bedell Cristin Partner, Lisa Springate has been shortlisted for the 'Best in Offshore' in the Europe Women in Business Law Awards organised by the Euromoney Legal Media Group.

Now in its third year, the Europe Women in Business Law Awards is given to both law firms and individuals. Individuals are judged on their professional accomplishments over the last 12 months, including their advocacy and influence in their professional field.

Lisa, who has almost 20 years experience in the offshore finance industry, is a specialist lawyer with Bedell Cristin's Litigation group in Jersey which sits in the top tier of both the Chambers and Legal 500 Directories.

Lisa is noted by Chambers Research as being 'very involved and a good practical lawyer' and by the Legal 500 for 'her diligence and excellent case management'. She has recently been described in Offshore Legal Business as one of the 'Channel Islands' legal elite line-up'.

Lisa has appeared in several notable cases in Jersey including the landmark cases of In the Matter of the Valetta Trust and In the Matter of the Shinorvic Trust.

Head of the Litigation department, Anthony Robinson added, "The fact that Lisa has been shortlisted simply serves to highlight the calibre of the litigation team at Bedell Cristin and the significance and complexity of the issues they deal with."

The awards ceremony will be held at a prestigious dinner at the Dorchester Hotel in London in mid June, where Lisa will be joined by leading lawyers from law firms both in London and across Europe. For further information about the Europe Women in Business Law Awards, please click here.
