“The Awards shortlist is a culmination of a wonderful 16 months”, says Managing Director, Zoe Holland

Zebra Legal Consulting (Zebra LC)* has been shortlisted for the prestigious Claims Innovation Awards 2014, just days after completing its role as technical due diligence advisor in Fairpoint’s recent acquisition of national law firm Simpson Millar.

The company, which was established in December 2012 and is based in Manchester City Centre, has been selected for the Associated Industries Team of the Year from 1-50 employees, an accolade it hopes to add to the Modern Law Awards’ New Entrant of the Year 2013 victory.

The firm’s flexible business model draws upon the expertise of over 40 leading professionals, ensuring a bespoke approach to ultimately produce market-leading reports for business improvement and planning, funding options, business risk evaluation and M&As, exemplified by the work delivered for Fairpoint.

Zoe Holland, Managing Director of Zebra LC, said: “The Awards shortlist is the culmination of a wonderful 16 months in which we’ve already been recognised by our peers and delivered several high-profile reports for leading legal and business names nationwide.

“As more new entrants enter the legal sector, the profile of Work in Progress (WIP), benchmarking data, technical expertise and operational risk are as important as the core figures. Brand protection is essential, a fact recognised by both Fairpoint and Simpson Millar.”
