Russell-Cooke joins Great British Entrepreneur Awards as partner

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards is delighted to announce Russell-Cooke as its legal partner for the 2021 programme.

Russell-Cooke is a top 100 London-based law firm with 200 solicitors and lawyers; advising commercial, not-for-profit, regulatory and personal clients.

A number of its team are regarded as leaders in their fields, winning peer-group accolades in areas as diverse as real estate, regulation, crime and children law. The breadth of expertise means it can tackle complex multi-dimensional cases that are beyond the scope of narrowly-based firms of solicitors. 

Founded in 2013, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses in the United Kingdom. Central to its ethos is being more than just ‘an awards ceremony’ – it’s a sense of community, and a thriving ecosystem of support all year round that provides opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their business. 

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “I’m delighted to welcome the team at Russell-Cooke to the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. We share the same values in supporting and championing entrepreneurs to do what they do best. 

“We’re thrilled to be working with a law firm that is so revered by others in the industry and look forward to the coming year as we work towards our common goal of celebrating entrepreneurs and businesses.”

Guy Wilmot, partner in Russell-Cooke’s corporate and commercial team, said: “What impressed us about the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is that they are focused on the stories behind the businesses and on the development of a genuine community. Here at Russell-Cooke, we foster relationships that are more than transactional – our aim is to be advising our entrepreneur clients every step of the way and being part of the ecosystem. Only by really understanding what motivates entrepreneurs and how they work can we help them most effectively to build their businesses. We are excited to be partnering with the GBEA and look forward to being involved in the energy and dynamism they have created.”
