Spire’s legal team win prestigious legal award

Spire Healthcare is delighted to announce that its legal team was named In-house Commerce and Industry Legal Team of the Year at The Lawyer Awards 2013.

The awards, which are the legal industry’s premier awards event, were held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London in front of over 1,400 leading lawyers. The evening saw the Spire team beat off tough competition from McDonald’s, InterContinental Hotels, National Car Parks and Premier Foods to win their category.

In awarding Spire first prize, the judges said, “There is no doubt that Spire Healthcare's legal team goes above and beyond and regularly think outside the box.”

They added, “For Spire's legal team, reviewing more than 8,000 documents as part of the Competition Commission inquiry was just a day job. While the big players in the private healthcare market were heavily engaged in the Commission process, the Spire team was concerned that individual doctors and patients were unaware of the market inquiry and that their voices were not being heard. In a bid to redress the balance the team issued a series of newsletters and leaflets through Spire hospitals, while general counsel Dan Toner spoke at more than 30 evening meetings to raise awareness of the process.”

The 2013 In-house team award completes a remarkable double for Spire’s lawyers, following General Counsel, Dan Toner, being named In-house Lawyer of the Year at the previous year’s awards.
