NautaDutilh has been nominated for five awards at the 2023 Dutch M&A Awards. The firm is nominated for Best M&A Law Firm and Best Diversity Firm. Sophie Umans is up for Best Young M&A Lawyer, Joost den Engelsman is on this year's shortlist for Best M&A Lawyer Mid-Market and Lieke van der Velden is one of the nominees for Best M&A Lawyer.
"These five nominations for the Dutch M&A Awards are a testimony to the talent, drive and ambition of our teams", says managing partner Sjoerd Meijer. “And above all, this recognition is an encouragement to continue to deliver the excellent results in transactions that help our clients grow their business.”
Among the shortlisted transactions that NautaDutilh teams worked on, the business combination of a.s.r. and Aegon Nederland, in which we acted for a.s.r., and Rexel's acquisition of Wasco, for which we acted as buy-side legal adviser, stand out. Both transactions are nominated for Best Deal. You can view the complete overview of all nominees here. The winners will be announced on 14 December at the annual M&A Awards event at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.
