A partner from law firm DMH Stallard has scooped a prestigious award in recognition of his achievements for the International Network of Boutique and Independent Law Firms (INBLF).
Stuart Evans is the first lawyer based outside of America to receive the Edward R. Gallion Memorial Award, which was presented at the INBLF’s annual black tie weekend in San Francisco.
Edward Gallion was a distinguished New York attorney who was a founder of the INBLF. The Memorial Award is presented to the chapter or international region that has best demonstrated the participation, spirit and advancement that Edward fostered and cherished.
Stuart received the award to recognise the European region and his efforts as president of the European Chapter of the INBLF.
He said: “I am delighted to have won this award. Edward was a fine lawyer and a great character, and he is much missed from the INBLF. It is a great honour not only to receive an award bearing his name, but also to follow in the footsteps of a number of highly accomplished attorneys. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as president of the European Chapter and am very honoured to see the European region recognised in this way.”
Stuart is a dispute resolution partner based in DMH’s Gatwick office and acts for multi-nationals, PLCs, SMEs and high net worth individuals.
DMH Stallard is one of the largest law firms in the south east and employs nearly 350 staff across offices in Gatwick, Brighton, Horsham, Guildford and London.
