Brabners joined in last night’s celebration of Manchester’s young business talent at the Made in Manchester Awards 2017.

Organised by future pro-manchester, the awards recognised the success of Manchester’s young business talent across 14 categories.

Brabners sponsored the Property Professional of the Year category and the firm’s head of commercial and IP, Nik White, presented the award to Katie Wray of Deloitte. He also presented a highly commended award to Ben Roberts of Lambert Smith Hampton.


Commercial law firm Brabners LLP said increased client demand for its litigation, corporate and employment teams helped it maintain revenues in its last financial year, whilst strong profits and net assets were enabling the 64-partner firm to continue investing in its long-term growth strategy.

Revenue at Brabners, which has offices in Liverpool, Manchester and Preston, reached £29.6m in the 12 months to 31st April 2016 (2015: £30.1m), with total profit* of £9.7m (2015: £10m).

As a business that dates back more than 200 years, commercial law firm Brabners has seen the renewable energy sector evolve significantly since its inception. From the development of the world’s first hydro-electric power scheme in 1878 and the first electricity-generating wind turbine in 1887to the privatisation of the energy sector in 1989, the firm has built up a wealth of expertise in this industry.

Commercial law firm Brabners has appointed partner Ian Mylrea to head up the firm’s national pensions practice.

With more than nine years’ experience, Ian has spent his career specialising in pensions law at national and international firms including DLA Piper. Prior to this, he worked in-house for the accountancy firm KPMG and as a professional trustee at Merrill Lynch.

Brabners is set to sponsor this year’s Property Professional of the Year category at the Made in Manchester Awards 2017.
