Tarmac’s legal and compliance team has won the best ‘In-House FTSE Industry and Commerce Team of the Year’ at the prestigious Lawyer Awards 2019 - the largest annual celebration of legal excellence in Europe.
At a glittering ceremony in London the team of 14 beat strong competition from Severn Trent, Serco Group, Daily Mail, and J Sainsbury. The accolade was given in recognition of the wide range of work undertaken for Tarmac in 2018, from managing a number of acquisitions and completing hundreds of commercial contracts to implementing GDPR.
Katie Smart, general counsel for Tarmac, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won this award which is a fantastic reflection of the hard work and dedication of every single member of the legal and compliance team.
“We’re all proud to work for Tarmac and this recognition from The Lawyer Awards helps shine a spotlight on the range of exciting career opportunities available within our company, as well as the wider construction industry which is such a great place to work for many professions.”
This latest award win is hot on the heels of Tarmac’s recent success at the receiving the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award for its health and safety practices.
