Lawyer in award shortlist

Have your say

A LAWYER has been shortlisted for an award.

Grant Usher, a member of the Corporate and Commercial team at Verisona Law, is up for the LawNet 2017 Young Lawyer of the Year award.

Grant said: ‘I’m delighted to have been short-listed.

‘Since joining Verisona Law, it has been a pleasure to work alongside Michael Dyer and Stephen Ryde-Weller on several high-profile transactions including the sale of Portsmouth Football Club to ex-Disney CEO Michael Eisner’s Tornante Group.’

About 200 delegates will attend the awards in Oxfordshire tomorrow.

Chairman Michael Dyer said: ‘In my experience it is very rare for a newly qualified solicitor to make the kind of impact and earn the level of respect that Grant has in such a short space of time since joining the team.’
