Jo van IJzeren, Legal Manager within ForFarmers, has been nominated for a M&A Award. He has been nominated for the Best General Counsel category, together with legal advisors from Imtech, KPN, Ziggo, Philips and Aegon.
The M&A Awards are prestigious prices for the best merger and takeover deals, advisors and financiers. The event, which will be held on Thursday 11th December 2014, is organised by Alex van Groningen, the leading partner for financial professionals.
Jo’s nomination falls into the Best General Counsel category. The Awards organiser sees General Counsel as: a strategic process manager who has tight control of his or her own team and manages the external legal advisors, from due diligence to signing. He knows the very best lawyers and competitively purchases legal advice. All legal information is easily accessible and available under his or her management, ensuring the company is always one step ahead of its competitors during takeover negotiations. The Best General Counsel is sharply focussed on risks and legal pitfalls. He or she is an expert in compliance, litigation and project management.
