Tughans was named Corporate Law Firm of the Year, beating off competition from many of Northern Ireland's top firms, and Managing Partner Ian Coulter lifted the Dealmaker of the Year award.
The awards, based on nominations submitted by key funders, advisers and others in the local business community, were presented in front of a 200-strong audience at Belfast's Europa Hotel.
Tughans has helped to broker some of Northern Ireland's largest and most significant corporate deals over recent years. Mr Coulter, also the current chairman of CBI Northern Ireland, specialises in international mergers and acquisitions as well as venture capital transactions.
“We are delighted with both accolades,” said John George Willis, Head of Corporate at Tughans.
“Ian's award won't come as a surprise to those who have encountered his drive and professionalism. There is no doubt that he is a corporate lawyer who makes things happen in the business world.
“The Corporate Law Firm of the Year Award is a real pat on the back for a very hard working and dedicated team of corporate lawyers at the practice.”
