Verisona Law are proud to announce that our very own Grant Usher who joined the Corporate & Commercial team at Verisona Law in April 2017 has been shortlisted for the LawNet 2017 Young Lawyer of the Year.
His professionalism, commitment to client care and strategic approach to business development has seen him at the centre of high profile business deals that have attracted national attention, trusted with some of the firm’s longest standing clients and be the subject of praise from clients, associates and managers alike.
“I am delighted to have been shortlisted for the LawNet Young Lawyer of the Year award.
Since joining Verisona Law, it has been a pleasure to work alongside Michael Dyer (Chairman) and Stephen Ryde-Weller (Head of Corporate & Commercial) on several high-profile transactions including the sale of Portsmouth Football Club to ex-Disney CEO Michael Eisner’s Tornante Group. I have had the opportunity to advise our clients across a range of niche sectors - be they marine, sports or charitable enterprises - in respect of internal reorganisations, Management Buy-Outs plus asset and share transactions put out to market for third party acquisition. The level of responsibility I have been afforded since my arrival has undoubtedly helped me grow and develop as a lawyer, which I trust has resulted in me providing a high quality of advice to our clients across the board.
It is testament to the wider Corporate & Commercial team and, by extension, the firm as a whole that I have been shortlisted for this award.”
Verisona Law’s Chairman, Michael Dyer adds: “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.”

Approximately 200 delegates will attend including senior management from all LawNet firms and key business partners and sponsors.
