Legal 500 2017
Nadim Zaman is recognised by the Legal 500 2017 for Corporate M&A. "Exceptional negotiator"
Recognised in Finance Monthly’s 2015 Deal Maker of the Year awards for the international merger of Hassle.com and Rocket Internet’s Helpling to create the world's largest online home-cleaning marketplace. The CEO of Hassle.com, who nominated Nadim for the award, commented:
“We have worked with Nadim on two large and politically charged M&A deals in 2015. Having appointed many lawyers over the last four years, I have found it rare for one to have a good handle on the legals whilst truly understanding the commercial and strategic landscape. Here is where Nadim excels as an advisor and I wouldn’t go into an M&A deal without him by my side.”
Nominated as a “rising star” by Chambers and Partners UK in 2012 and recognised in Legal 500 for his corporate transactional work, in particular the sale of Stage Three Music by Apax Partners in 2011.
