Success at the Euromoney Women in Business Law awards

 

14 June 2019

Allen & Overy partner Kate Sumpter has won ‘Best in financial regulation’ at this year’s Euromoney LMG Europe Women in Business Law Awards.

Following on from last year’s success where she was awarded ‘Rising Star: Finance’, Kate once again impressed the judges and demonstrated that she is a leader in her field.

On a firm-wide level, A&O won ‘Best international firm for work-life balance’ for the fourth year running. UK head of diversity and inclusion, Jo Dooley said: “We’re proud to be the recipient of this award once again. We continually review our policies and practices to ensure we’re offering a suitable, flexible and agile working environment so that we can support all our staff, but particularly those with carer responsibilities.”

Commenting on Kate’s award, A&O’s head of UK financial services regulatory, Damian Carolan said: “This is a fantastic achievement which Kate thoroughly deserves. To progress from a Rising Star to overall winner in the financial regulation category in just one year demonstrates that her knowledge and expertise is second to none and that she is highly regarded in the industry. She is also a great role model at A&O, mentoring a number of our up and coming female associates and being part of the faculty for our Female Emerging Leader’s programme.”

The individual awards recognise the best female lawyers in each practice area, who have become influential leaders in their field, while the firm-wide prizes celebrate those setting the standard in terms of female-friendly work practices.
