Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has been named the 'Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team of the Year' at The British Legal Awards.

Presented at a ceremony in London on 29 November 2018, the award recognised the firm's work advising the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in a long running dispute. A team, led by partner Kamal Shah, worked on the 14-year dispute between the NNPC and projects company IPCO (Nigeria) Ltd, which related to the building of the Bonny Export Terminal in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

The dispute involved many hearings in the Commercial Court, generating seven reported judgments, three decisions of the Court of Appeal and one of the Supreme Court, in which Stephenson Harwood secured a significant victory and added clarity to the law on the enforcement of international arbitration awards.

The British Legal Awards, hosted by Legal Week, in association with The City of London Law Society, showcases achievements from across the legal sector.
