Congratulations go to the legal team of The Carlyle Group on winning In-House Team of the Year at the Legal Business Awards!
The team is led by Heather Mitchell, a Partner, Managing Director and the firm’s global General Counsel for Investments. The London team is directly involved in investments that cover the full spectrum of geographies, sectors and deal structures. With each lawyer running around five deals at any one time, the volume of work handled is highly unusual. Such an approach has won plaudits from the c-suite, which notes the significant contribution form legal in helping Carlyle find value through investments others have shied from and facilitating the turnaround of underperforming investments.
This was a fantastic event and Contax Law is proud to have sponsored the In-House Team of the Year Award!
